Black Bean Brownies

Dont be fooled by the name!  These brownies taste nothing like black beans.  But instead of flour black beans is what you use!  I was a little nervous to try these out but Im a lover now!  They taste delicious and the best part is you dont feel as bad eating them afterwards!  I (Joni) made them and didnt tell my husband what was in them and he thought they were great!  When I told him afterwards he couldnt believe it.  Go make some today and dont feel as bad scooping that large scoop of icecream on top!
