Peanut Butter Black Bean Brownies

Hey everyone! I am back from Quebec and ready for some baking!

I had so much fun during my time in Quebec! I met so many people, learned French, and ate lots of delicious Chocolat Favoris ice cream.

I immediately made some Rhubarb Crisp when I got home and then decided to experiment with a new recipe!

I think this is the first time I have made black bean brownies. And now I wonder why I didn't make them sooner!

These are gooey, sweet, and decadent. You would never guess that black beans are the main ingredient. I will be making them again ASAP!
