These flourless, sugarless black bean brownies are not only rich in chocolatey brownie flavor, but the added coffee gives them an extra kick! The coffee flavor perfectly complements the dark chocolate flavor and adds to the richness of this low-carb black bean brownie. These low-carb protein brownies have the texture and moisture level similar to traditional, flour & sugar brownies.

The added protein powder increases the protein content and adds to the chocolate flavor as well. If you opt to not add protein powder, make sure to reduce the amount of unsweetened almond milk added to your black bean brownie mixture so that the batter is not too liquidy. If you'd like to increase the fat content, you can replace the unsweetened almond milk with melted butter or coconut oil.

    “Grease a brownie pan.” I assume you mean an 8-inch square pan but many use a 9×13-inch pan for brownies, also. Could you clarify?
