Fudgy Black Bean Brownies

Last week I gave you guys my five ways to practice self-care. My #5 favorite way was to try a new recipe. There are tons of recipes out there, but this one is a must-try this week! If you’ve stocked up on canned goods, this is one recipe that will utilize them. Already gluten-free, full of protein and fiber and easily transformed into a vegan dessert, if needed!
