Secret Ingredient Fudgy Flourless Brownies

These brownies were a huge hit with my husband, who is picky about his desserts. They did not last long. He knows that I am always trying out new recipes for my blog, which is gluten free, dairy free and refined sugar free, so with his eyebrows raised, he asked me what the catch was. I didn’t tell him there were black beans (the secret ingredient!) in the them (and no white sugar!). He ate the whole batch anyways. These fudgy brownies will leave no crumb behind!
