Most of you know that I am a chocolate lover.  Make no mistake about it, I love ALL things chocolate.  Most of the time I try not to have anything chocolate in my house because I have very little will power when it comes to that dark and glorious sweetness!  I made these black bean brownies for a recent Beachbody Steelers Party and they were a HUGE hit!  And while I understand they aren’t completely clean or healthy they sure are better for me than that hot lava triple chocolate cake that I used to devour!  hahahh  Hope you enjoy these as much as our guests did at the party!
