These decadent brownies have a secret ingredient that make them moist, rich and allow for a dense chocolate bite ... black beans! I say secret ingredient because you truly cannot taste beans whatsoever and only the chocolaty goodness! Oh and guess what, they are healthy, packed with fibre and satisfy that sweet tooth!
