Triple Chocolate Flourless Black Bean Brownies

These chocolatey and irresistible brownies are a chocaholics dream! The best part is  that the base is made from black beans, as opposed to refined flours and sugars that are commonly found in other brownies. The black beans create a dense and moist base, and when accompanied with rich, chocolatey flavours is a wildly delicious combination!

This recipe is VEGAN and can be made GLUTEN FREE by simply using gluten free oats.

Give this recipe a try, it will not disappoint!
