Peg's Famous Black Bean Brownies

Kim Biegacki


I finally had my first taste of black bean brownies and was hooked. This recipe was given to my by my doctor and she said they got it from the Farmer's Almanac 2016. So, I don't know if they tweaked anything or not but here it is. Now, these are more cake like brownies but incredibly yummy considering that they are made of beans.

Since then, I've tried another recipe that I really enjoy as well.
