PB Swirl Brownies

A few time ago I uploaded my first vegan black bean brownies and I had the time to remake them and adjust the recipe. This new recipe is much easier, healthier and more flexible for fitting them into your macros.

I love the fun size in which I cutted them and it also allows you to pack one or two on a bag or bowl to have them as a snack if you are going to be out for a while (I always, really 90% of the time, carry snacks on my bag).

Cooking with beans is so wonderful because they add a nice amount of fiber and protein to any dessert so they make any dessert better and guilty free. Besides, they also give a great texture.

Their texture is soft, moist and so fudgy!  They can be a warmth snacj with a hot bevereage.

And guess what? You do not have to worry about the macros, I got you! A single brownie has 14g net carbs and 5g protein.
