I know what you're thinking.
"Why would I eat brownies made from black beans?"
What if I told you there are filled with protein, good fats, and clean carbs - and are oh so delicious. That means you can have up to TWO pieces everyday! No guilt, no problem!
Plus, they are filled with the dark, rich, fudgy flavor of real brownies.
You can make these in batches and they keep well in the fridge for one week.
