    I'm not gluten free but thought I'd give this ago anyway. I'm glad I did. It is very nice nutty chocolate tasty, very rich, but slightly healthier than normal brownies. My four year old grandchild liked it too. However, the end product crumbled a LOT, and couldn't really be sliced and cooking took slightly longer (probably because I used a loaf tin, as I didn't know what a sliced tin was). Would certainly make asgain - 23 Jun 2015

    This made a lovely moist cake with a good flavour while the almonds gave it a wonderful nutty texture. My only small complaint would be that it was a little heavy and crumbly. - 17 Sep 2014

    Wonderful! Loved the fact that it was healthy- most other recipes call for oodles of butter. Came out moist and nutty. The vanilla is essential to mask the taste of the butter beans, but no one in the family guessed the beans! I used some water to get the beans blended in the blender, so the mixture became a bit more runny and needed longer to cook. I would use a hand blender next time. I also added some chopped walnuts for texture. Very filling! Would make again. - 30 Jun 2016
