Black Bean Brownies with Swirl (GF +VG)

Black Bean Brownies

I know there are a lot of black bean brownie recipes and also vegan. But still I wanted my own recipe, because I like them so much. And I was thinking, what can I do to make mine different? Well, I’ve found the solution. I almost didn’t use any added sugar and put a swirl on top. With what ingredient? Go read on.

Okay, okay I will tell you. I made a swirl with a date caramel. Because the brownie it self doesn’t contains a lot of sweetness, it was necessary to put something sweet on top. No better ingredient than dates and because you can make a caramel with it. It made it even easier.

  3. Put the batter in a bowl and fold in the chocolate chips.
