The Best Chocolate Chip Black Bean Brownies

Nor M.


I have had a few versions of these brownies. This is the very best I ever had. They are Flourless.
You would never know there are beans in these beauties. I got the original recipe from Healthy Eating Cook Book. It has been tweaked to my liking. Enjoy!
