This recipe is amazing! I just pulled these out from the oven to post them on my instagram account and they are perfect. I had to replace the expresso powder for instant coffee and it worked out well. You can see the post and picture here https://www.instagram.com/p/BNP1V1GDtdK/?taken-by=kilo_bites

Hi, where did you find your original recipe? Per a lot of attribution discussion here on Food 52 as well as other sites, It would be great if you stated where you found the recipe and then linked to the source, stating which author you adapted this from. I'm always flattered when folks adapt my recipes and give me credit. http://mealmakeovermoms.com/kitchen/2009/07/10/black-bean-brownies/

Can these be made without espresso powder? Or are there any substitutions? Can't wait to try!

I just pulled these out of the oven. Amazing! Mine had to cook a little longer (extra 10 min or so) but man, are they good! Thank you for this great recipe!

Wow!!! These are really good. I made all my friends try them because I could not believe they were made with beans. What a yummy way to add fiber and make brownies a bit healthier.

Thanks! I'm so glad you liked them - they really are a nice alternative if you need gluten free and more fiber.

I like to use the red kidney beans when I make brownie. I will definitely give these a try

Oh do! You can use canned adzuki beans in a pinch (Whole Foods has them), just rinse them well to get rid of the sodium and measure 2 cups total by volume.

Thanks! I adapted a recipe I had made once before for black bean brownies, but the adzuki are sweeter to begin with. Taste great, less filling!
