Black Bean Brownies

I’ve made Chickpea Blondies before, so of course I just had to try using black beans! I know it sounds weird, but you would never know that these have black beans in them. These are a more healthy spin on your typical brownies! They are vegan and gluten free.  Did I mention they are DELICIOUS?!

I give you the more nutritious Black Bean Brownie:
