That was my first attempt. I have both HH books and I think she has another recipe that I will give a try. It requires soy yogurt, which I have now. I will let you know if it is successful. :)

I agree, they weren't what I was hoping for. But when I put the idea of a brownie out of my mind (which was difficult after trying two different recipes while dreaming of brownies the entire time!) and just accepted them for what they are (a banana-black-bean-chocolate-treat) they're pretty good. A healthy-ish fix to a chocolate craving at the least.

Have you found any good black bean brownie recipes that taste like a brownie? I'm thinking maybe one with applesauce or flax instead of banana.

Thanks for the link.

VGNHRT, I made HH's black bean brownies last week. :( They were good but not great. Also, they didn't taste chocolaty at all. I only tasted the banana. I was disappointed.

I tried the brownies last night, they didn't turn out well. I was determined, so I found a different recipe on Happy Herbivore and was disappointed again when I tried them right out of the oven - but this morning now that they've cooled off they actually taste pretty good!

Thank you VGNHRT! I didn't know about Dr. Fuhrman being on Dr. Oz today. Now I am recording it. Blessings

I don't watch Dr. Oz but I know a lot of people do - I was excited to see Dr. Furhman will be on today talking about a plant based diet (for weight loss). I love to see the the veggie lifestyle being praised among the mainstream. Score one for the team :-)
