This is so bad…last summer I bought a bunch of new frames to create a new photo wall. It took like 7 months for me to get them even hung up on the wall. I was so indecisive! Now they sit there totally empty. So lame! I need to sit down and get some prints ASAP!

26 Amazing, Healthy Black Bean Recipes {My Natural Family} -

[…] 10. Double Chocolate Brownie Cookies Recipe […]

Krista Millard -

Made these today. For some reason, my “batter” came out very runny, even though I followed your measurements exactly. Also, the cookie didn’t taste very chocolaty other than the chips. I guess I can add more next time. But it did have a brownie texture, even though my cookies came out much thinner because of the runny batter. I added butterscotch chips to ours – super yum!

Alfred Amina Levy -

I tried making things and they turned out a little bit like pancakes. However, I used black beans that I had pressured cooked a couple of days ago from the refrigerator AND I forgot to wash them. Regardless of the shape, the cookies were a hit as I brought a container full to church and came home empty handed. Thank you for the recipe! I was thinking of adapting it to make a pancake recipe =)

Amanda Socci -

Hi Amy Lee, thanks for the excellent recipe. I really would love to try this out, but I learned that I cannot print out your recipe. Do you have a printable version, please?
