Although I make plenty of full-fat desserts and dishes for friends and family, my personal eating is pretty healthy. I have also fallen into the habit of having to have something sweet after every meal. This is my perfect solution. I had been buying individually wrapped, 90 calorie brownie packs, but these taste so much better and omit the chemistry test of ingredients. I know that the idea of black bean brownies is nothing new, but try the addition of these few added ingredients and you'll never buy $3.00 a box store-bought, low-cal dessert bars again. My 13x9 pan costs just $1.89!
