Sweet Beans

The brownies looked so good after they came out of the oven, but I kept on smelling them, to make sure they did not smell like baked beans. I tried a little piece of one and then it was gone!
A couple of friends have highly recommended I try black beans brownies. I have had sweet bean desserts before, but not beans on my brownies! That’s not a combination that I would have come up on my own. I must say my family and are were surprised how good they turned out. Excited it is gluten-free. I just replaced the flour with mashed blacked beans.
