    We we happy with texture and flavour!

    I was disappointed. I followed the recipe exactly. The brownies didn’t rise much and were pretty tasteless. Might be good with a dollop of whipped cream or frozen yogurt. Certainly didn’t look anything like the picture the author used on Yummly. Seems like other positive reviews might be because of substitutions they made.

    Very yummy. I did put a little cinnamon in at as someone else suggested. I will make again.

    The chocolate/espresso taste is good, and the texture isn't bad, especially for something flourless. It isn't as sweet as I hoped. Granted, I did have to substitute sugar for splenda, but I'm not sure that changed much.

    Tasted great! I used brown sugar instead of Splenda since I make this for GF people (not healthy people). I’ve messed around with adding chocolate to this recipe and noticed that regular sized chocolate chips sink to the bottom during the bake; therefore, I suggest using mini chips.

    I would like it more if it had the same texture of a regular brownie. It’s not gooey. But it has an okay taste!

    This recipe really surprised me. I was really skeptic about the black beans but you would never be able to tell. Low calorie and pairs great with fruit. I love to eat these brownies with cut up clementines.

    I used coconut oil and an extra table spoon of coca. I like the flavor it adds.

    Absolutely delicious. I used 2/3cup raw sugar as I didnt have splenda. They didnt look gooey like the picture but they were very moist. Hubby thought they were fantastic and he isnt i to beans. Couldnt taste the beans at all.

    My family and I loved this :) It tastes like something that you would get at a coffee shop. Highly recommend

    to make this recipe even tastier, i cut the brownies in half and added rasberry jam to the middle and sprinkled powdered sugar on top next time im also going to add chocolate chips to batter.
