Black Bean Brownies
These Black Bean Brownies are so moist & fudge-y! I <3 them. They're also healthy, vegan, flourless, gluten free, & naturally sweetened with maple syrup!

The batter itself isn’t very sweet, but when combined with the chocolate chips - it’s perfect, so don’t skip the chocolate chips! :)
