Gluten Free Black Bean Brownies

So the name of these is pretty odd right?  Black bean brownies?  Are they savory or sweet? Well, my friends, these babies are SWEET!  They are gfree and full of protein and healthy complex carbs.  My kids (and Josh) have been gobbling them up so I will take that as a win!  The texture is similar to soft fudge and they are surprisingly delicious.  I highly recommend as both a gluten-free and healthier alternative to one of my favorite sweet treats!
