Try the trend that everyone else is trying: black bean brownies. Pureed black beans take the place of oil and eggs so the brownies are moist and decadent, but we doubt you’ll even notice them thanks to a little teamwork from chocolate and coffee. Try it once, and we promise you’ll keep this fiber-filled, healthyish brownie recipe around. MORE+ LESS-

Expert Tips

  • Coffee brings the flavor out in chocolate and makes it taste even more intense.
  • Pureed black beans give these brownies loads of moisture, but don’t give them a beanie flavor.
  • Try lining the pan with foil, leaving an overhang that will help you lift them out of the pan for easier cutting.
