I know, I know! You are probably saying BLACK BEANS, umm? Well I say YES, so listen closely. These brownies are gluten free, low carb (4.8g net carbs), high fibre, moist, delicious and only 2 Weight Watchers points. Coffee is used to off set any beany taste you may experience and storing them in the refrigerator will also helps with that if you still think they taste like beans. I guarantee if you serve these to people first then tell them what it is made of they probably won’t believe you.

Black beans provide special support for digestive tract health, and particularly our colon. From a single, one-cup serving of black beans you get nearly 15 grams of fiber, well over half of the Daily Value and 15 grams of protein, nearly one third of the Daily Value and equivalent to the amount in 2 ounces of a meat like chicken or a fish like salmon. The “protein-plus-fiber” combination in black beans and other legumes is also a key to their outstanding support for blood sugar balance and blood sugar regulation.

Be be creative with your toppings. We love crushed peanuts or other nuts which offers the added bonus of healthy fats and more protein.

    About the Author:

    Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen. Feel free to explore and remember to check us out on Face Book, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.
