As some of y’all know, I have 2 kiddies and 2 go-to healthy baking sites. Elana’s Pantry and Chocolate Covered Katie. I’ve been dying to try Chocolate Covered Katie’s gluten-free black bean brownies recipe — since my kids LOVE chocolate and I’m always trying to find ways to sneak protein and fiber into their diets. Chocolate Covered Katie to the rescue! Again!
This was an absolute hit with my kids — and the entire pan of brownies lasted less than 8 hours. But be sure to EAT THEM WARM! OR EAT THE BATTER STRAIGHT UP! (It’s vegan – so there are no eggs – so you’re good to go!)
GLUTEN-FREE BLACK BEAN BROWNIES

Here is her delicious recipe.
