Ahhhh brownies, a delicious treat adored by many – myself included. (Yes, I too have been known to knock out a pan of brownies sitting in front of the TV watching a good movies on a Sunday night). Most of the time after these sweet indulges you get that period of time where you just felt guilty – knowing just how your experience will play havoc in your waistline. Several years ago I was introduced to bean brownies during a work related meeting. Ever since then I am addicted. In the years since I have experimented with many different variations. Today I wanted to share just one of those variations.
