It's April Fool's day, and that means it's time for something deliciously tricky in the kitchen. How about a brownie recipe you can indulge in without any guilt? Try our "Fool 'em" Black Bean Brownies! Yep, that's right. These brownies are made with black beans! That means they're a lighter option everyone can enjoy; but don't worry, they still have all the chocolatey taste of a traditional brownie recipe. Your friends and family will never see this secret ingredient coming.
What You'll Need
