Black Bean Brownies: Gluten and Dairy free

Black Bean Brownies

In one of my older posts, Staycation cook off, Bring on the recipes I decided that I needed to experiment more with certain foods. Since beans are part of mine and the hubbies ancestral foods it was a no brainer to learn more about the black bean.

The beauty of the black bean is that when it’s combined with a whole grain it becomes a protein source comparable to a meat protein, bonus.  Another bonus is that they are a great source of fiber.

I combined a few recipes I researched and decided to venture out to create something of my own and BAM!!!
