    GF Momma of 3's Note:

    Thank You Rick Gallop! Taken from his book, "The GI Diet Clinic" - A low glycemic version of Pecan Brownies. And no, you can't taste the beans! Of course this recipe is packed with fiber so they are healthy, but oh so tasty, so get baking! Nuts on top add some crunch to these cakey brownies. Storage: These brownies need to covered with plastic wrap or cut and stored in airtight container for up to 4 days. They can also be frozen for up to 2 weeks.

      I am giving this 5 stars because I think the recipe accomplishes a great deal, given the point of the recipe being to use healthier ingredients than a regular brownie. Of course, a regular brownie will taste much more rich and indulgent. I couldn't identify that there were beans in the cooked brownie. I used black beans, Smart balance 50/50 butter baking blend, silk soy milk, 1/4 agave sweetener rather than 1/2 cup of Splenda. I added a pinch or so of coffee to enhance the flavor. I think this is a good basic recipe that you could experiment a lot with. Thanks so much for posting this!

      Considering that this is a super duper healthy dessert I think it's quite tasty. I used cannellini beans and I was able to taste them but my husband couldn't. I will for sure make this again. I used Stoneground Wholemeal flour to keep the G.I. index really low. Thanks for sharing!

      This is a great recipe, thanks for posting it...but credit should really be shared with the source: Rick Gallop's "Living the G.I. Diet" book.
