    I make these brownies also but instead of using black beans I use chick peas—

    Wow! These were delicious, moist, almost decadent! I didn’t have enough choc. chips to put on the top. I used dark chocolate bark with almonds and sea salt. I’ll be making these again! Btw, what’s the calorie count and nutrition information?

    I couldn’t believe how good they are-very moist, not too sweet and easy to make.
