      I think it would too if you use azuki beans but not with red kidney beans.

    At first I was skeptical but now I want to make them. I never use to like beans (in other words I tried them when they were in a boring dish and just thought 'meh') but then I ate a really good burrito (that was free through a promotion) and now I like beans

    I made the brownies using Martina's method (squashing the beans with a masher and fork), swapped out the honey for actual sugar and I thought they were all right. I used a food processor the second go round today, used honey, and the brownies are MUCH better. The processor helps smooth the beans and oats, and it looks and tastes more like brownies. I doubt I will eat regular brownies again.

    Pro tip: if you ever need to pour out honey/syrup and oil in the same recipe, measure out the oil first if you can and then the honey! The honey slides right out, no waiting for it to drip business

  • Jimin's high note in House Of Cards

    I've made these a few times now since you made this video (because they're so freakin delicious and my whole family loved them) but last time I made them I almost forgot to add the beans :D the batter just didn't look right and took me about 5 minutes before I realized I forgot the main ingredient lmao

    Those look so "Baahhhhh" good! Though I have an allergy to Coconut oil. Does anyone know what I could use as a substitute for it? I'm not Vegan but like to eat on the healthy side. Just don't want to assume and use something else and mess up the texture.

    This is my favourite cake recipe now.
    It's just so delicious.
    Highly recommend for everyone sceptical about black beans.
    I fed numerous sceptical people with this cake.
    Everyone said that it is just delicious.
    Except one guy, but he doesn't like anything, like he just hates life itself.
    Anyway, the cake is DOPE

    Gotta say, this was the best brownie recipe I've tried to date. Thanks for sharing this recipe. Think you'll continue midnight cooking in Japan? I'd love to see what other things you have to share with your viewers with cooking. I also enjoyed the recipes that you did with your chef friend. I'm proud to be one of the many nasties who get to learn more about foreign cultures through you two.

  • it's time to hajima

    I have a question! What's a good substitute for the coconut oil? My dad had a heart attack and on his list of foods he should avoid is coconut oil.

    • snoozleblob
      snoozleblob Year ago +1

      (Totally super late and probably not relevant anymore for you, haha but just in case...) In the original recipe, the author says some commenters had good success substituting the oil with peanut butter. I suppose any nut butter would work really if that's the case since I think coconut oil is there to sort of solidify the mixture a bit and add flavour. I've tried this with a mixture of peanut oil and peanut butter before and it was alright.

  • Daniela Navarro
    Daniela Navarro Year ago +1

    this is the first of your recipes that ive tried (i mean i also tried the chia seed pudding but... we don't talk about that) and it is SO GOOD i was skeptic because ive read that this kind of brownies are really gross, but i made mine with canned beans and a spoonful of refried beans, i made oat flour instead of using quick cooking oats and i added some quinoa açai dark chocolate bites i had lying around because i ran out of chocolate chips and Martina is totally right, you should taste the batter before cooking them because mine needed a bit more cocoa and honey, thank you so much! im gonna try them with beans cooked from scratch and see if they turn out better

    I found out the hard way that two cans of beans are needed to get the one and a half cups of smooshed beans, I ended up putting more oats and almond flour in but other than that. THEY'RE DELICIOUS!!!!

    Didn't you used to have a food processor, Martina? What happened to it? Or did you just decide it wasn't worth the effort for these?

    • Lugosi Dane
      Lugosi Dane Year ago

      +Simon and Martina Aw, congrats girl. =) Yeah, the different plugs and such are concerning me for a gift that I want to send you guys. Can you tell me - even if they don't have the same plugs, do they use the same battery sizes? 'Cause I can get around it with that.

    • Simon and Martina
      Simon and Martina  Year ago

      No you're right, I had a food processor in Korea but the plugs are different so I couldn't bring any of my kitchen devices with me to Japan. It is way way worth it to use the food processor because the key is making the beans super smooth. I just bought a new mini-food processor a few days ago so I'll be able to make a much nicer and smoother brownie now.

    Can I try them with red beans??

  • Amanda Jordan

      +Simon and Martina
      Yeah I was super surprised! The only thing I do different is pulse the oats into oat flour before adding in the rest of the stuff so that it's more gooey.

    • Simon and Martina

      Aren't they great? They seem scary at first but really freakin magic when you taste them.

  • Inklingsrule.octodrule

    if we don't like Coconut oil or we can't find it, can we us3 vegtable oil or olive oil???

    • Simon and Martina
      Simon and Martina  Year ago

      You can use any kind of oil you like (including butter), but I don't know if you will taste something like olive oil clearly.

  • Erin Zhang
    Erin Zhang Year ago

    ive been waiting to try this and I JUST MADE THESE 2HRS AGO AND THEY ARE ACTUALLY REALLY GREAT!!!!! fosho when martina says to mash the beans really well, make sure its really smooth. i was too lazy and just hand mashed. it was smooth, but could have been better since they didn't hold as well due to the chunkiness

    • Simon and Martina
      Simon and Martina  Year ago +3

      Cool! Yes the smoothness makes all the difference! I just bought a new food processor so these will be a lot nicer once smoother.

    i thought honey was vegan since like honey farms (lolol idk how they are called) are actually good for bees??? idk

    • tasha b
      tasha b 2 months ago

      Gabriel McCloud agave isn't the only alternative sweetener though, I personally don't even use it because it's actually really bad for you and your body processes it the exact same way as high fructose corn syrup. I use maple syrup, or make my own simple syrup with sugar if needed.

    • Kat McCloud
      Kat McCloud Year ago +1

      Well, agave farming is pushing multiple animal species (ie long-nosed bats) towards endangerment and even extinction! So *this* vegan will take honey from farmers that are keeping bees from going extinct themselves over a sweetener that harms animal populations any day~

    • chocobunny39
      chocobunny39 Year ago

      honey is an animal by-product so not vegan. i like to think of it as bee vomit they create to feed their baby larvae baby bees (???) and we steal it to eat since its sweet. thats my very poor description and take of why honey isn't vegan haha. or u can just google it :P

    I couldn't find any carob chips at my grocery store, so made these without them and they were ok (wanted to keep it vegan so I didn't want to use regular chocolate chips). Not very chocolaty or sweet. I guess that's a vital ingredient ><.

    • Simon and Martina
      Simon and Martina  Year ago

      I'm not 100%, but some people were telling me that most chocolate chips are vegan bc they contain no milk product? I thought they did but apparently a lot of them are not made with milk! Maybe google it to be sure?

    Why black beans only? I like Japanese red beans and Lima beans.

    • letmeeatyourliver
      letmeeatyourliver Year ago

      ive tried it before; personally with red beans the texture is different as well as the flavor. plus, the color wont match the fact that they are brownies, which have to be brown to black. and lima beans are a definite no no. trust me on that one. they dont mash well, and the texture and thickness when mashed wont make good brownies.

  • Jamie Kim

    ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! Does not taste like black beans at all!! I edited the recipe to be vegan, only using agave as sweetener and boosted the protein value by mixing in my chocolate protein powder. Also added a tablespoon of soy milk to add moisture to the mix. This is a wonderful, guilt free dessert!

    Here in Brazil, black beans are our most basic food (along with rice)... But we have it tempered with some spices, onions, garlic and SALT... So I reaaaally can't make myself think of eating beans in desserts or anything sweet. It creeps me out .___.
