Vegan Black Bean Brownies Recipe- a healthier alternative for those who like to watch their weight.

Every once in a while (okay… probably more like every minute of every day) I get a craving for chocolate yumminess. Obviously, I can’t go around stuffing chocolate into my face all the time, my newly acquired size two’s are already getting a little snug from the Holidays. These vegan black bean brownies are a delicious and healthier alternative to the regular sugar-filled baked treats.
