Black Bean Protein Brownies

Honestly, this video says it all. These brownies need no special introduction. Basically they are made with four simple ingredients and are out of this world good! A healthy brownie that actually tastes as good as it looks? Say what?! I mean if I didn’t have to film this video 568 times because I kept messing up I’d say this whole post was a piece of cake…err I mean brownie. Ha!

What you get (aside from a good laugh):

  • A recipe that’s gluten-free, nut-free, oil-free & soy-free
  • A less than 100 calorie treat aka it’s guilt-free
  • A super easy blender recipe that uses only 4 ingredients
  • A dessert that’s ready from start to finish in 30 minutes
