I have said it before and I will say it again - I am not much of a baker. I feel much more comfortable with the flow of cooking, than the rigidity of baking. But I want to get better, and a large part of that is experience. So my friend Melissa, an excellent baker and author of Smells Like Brownies, is helping me learn.
We decided to start with some peanut butter swirl brownies, with the knowledge that we wanted there to be plenty of saltiness to contrast the sweetness. So we made sure that the peanut butter layer was salted, then finished the brownies with flaky sea salt - yum.
These brownies contain no dairy and very little fat, but they are still super tasty and moist!
Here are all the ingredients you will need, including the secret weapon - black beans. These are pureed and stand in for the oil and eggs. But fear not - you can't even taste them!
