Black Bean Brownies

flourless, gluten free, dairy free, refined sugar free, nut free

Happy Halloween Week!

These fudgy, dark chocolate brownies make for a delicious treat! Beans can be a substitute for flour in some recipes which I think is awesome for those with various allergies, intolerances, and preferences. The black beans made these the perfect color for a Halloween dessert. 

After taking that first bite, the taste of rich chocolate flavor combined with the pieces of whole chocolate inside make it hard to believe these brownies are made out of beans!! 

If you have food restrictions or you just want to try out a fun dessert made with simple ingredients, check these brownies out and give them a try! Let me know what you think.
