choccy chia and black bean vegan brownie slice

This tasty and nutritious vegan brownie slice uses our Choccy Chia Snack Ball Mix with the the sneaky addition of wholesome black beans!

Beans and chocolate you ask? It does sound a little strange, but the flavour of the beans blends right in (the kids won't even notice!) and they provide a healthy dose of fibre and protein - something not too many brownies can claim.

These brownies have all the delicious taste and texture of a normal brownie with the added benefit of being vegan and a good source of essential vitamins and minerals.

This sneaky vegan brown slice is an energy boosting, nutrient rich snack that offers a whole lot more than your traditional style brownie!
