Fudgy Black Bean Brownies

These intensely chocolaty treats use pureed black beans to replace some of the fat and sugar in a typical brownie recipe. No one would ever guess the secret ingredient, as there is no beany flavor — just fudgy richness. A small amount of instant coffee amplifies the chocolate notes, but if you don’t have any on hand, the recipe is still great without it. We suggest lining the pan with parchment paper, but you could also skip that step and coat the pan with cooking spray instead.
