black bean brownies

Since Bush's Beans was hosting a dinner at Evo Conference, I thought I would try out their Black Bean Brownie recipe before we went.  I've heard of cooking with black beans but never done it.  We don't have any gluten allergies in our home, but we have friends who do.  This alternative is simply fantastic!  It's so easy, and my kids loved it.  They didn't know they were made with black beans until after they finished their brownie.  That way I was able to get an honest yes or no from them.  It was definitely a thumbs up yes!  I omitted the oil and added applesauce in its place.  I also added the optional chocolate chips and instant coffee as well as 1/2 tsp. of baking soda.  My love for black beans has grown stronger!
