Gluten-Free Black Bean Brownies

Hey guys! So I know there was a black bean brownie craze a few years back. Is it just me or does anyone remember when Hayley Duff made that black bean cake on her cooking show and everyone’s jaws dropped? Okay, maybe that was just me. But ANYWAY. The whole idea of black beans being put into baked goods and tasting so amazing and NOT like probably the best thing since sliced {gluten-free}bread. Seriously, it doesn’t taste like a taco or a dip, it tastes like the fudgy brownie goodness that you know and love. Just with added protein and fiber 😉 Hope you enjoy!


**Sorry low-carb peeps, but legumes (beans) have plenty of carbs so this recipe isn’t very keto or paleo friendly.
