Recipe: Black Bean Avocado Brownies

Dessert Recipes



Putting avocado into brownies may sound a little strange, but I promise this recipe will not disappoint.

These black bean avocado brownies are made with black beans in place of flour and avocado instead of butter or oil.  That means these brownies have more fiber and healthy fats than regular brownies and they are gluten-free and vegan!

Everyone will love these chocolate packed brownies and no one will expect that they are actually healthy.
