I wouldn't exactly say these are award winning brownies but the kids like them! I am on a mission to hide healthy food in snacks as I have two very fussy eaters who both have a sweet tooth. I have yet to try them out on my husband who is intollerant to just about everything but I think this recipe is a keeper.

I used adzuki / red beans as I can't get blackbeans in Australia and this seemed to work well. I also added 2 tsp of baking powder and they did rise ever so slightly. I might add more stevia next time as they could be a bit sweeter, the mix tasted fine before baking but after baking they could be a bit sweeter.
