    I used dark chocolate cocoa so I replaced 1 Tbsp of egg with Agave nectar to account for the extra bitterness of the dark. I also made them in mini-muffin tins and added a few dark chocolate chips to each. Add a little lite whipped cream and they're even better. - 3/20/08

    Admittedly, when I saw black beans as an ingredient for a brownie I was hesitant to try this. However, it turned out great! Very moist! I got 1 dozen rather than the 18 servings indicated, so maybe I overpoured the batter. Will make again! - 9/27/07

    I haven't met a calorie I didn't like -- seriously -- until I made these brownies. And I had incorporated some of the suggestions I read here. Still had to toss the balance of the batch. - 7/13/09

    This was a disaster for me, and I could only eat half of a brownie. The cocoa made them too bitter. (I used Ghiradelli unsweetened cocoa). However, the texture was pretty good. I'll try this next time with sweetened cocoa, which will of course add calories. - 7/8/09
