Next time you're craving a tray of fudgy, ooey-gooey chocolate brownies, make sure you add black beans to your grocery list. In lieu of flour, you can swap in black beans to whip up a batch of chewy, sweet, and perfectly balanced brownies.
This trick is being used more and more often by bakers everywhere, who swear by the clever, healthy, and surprisingly tasty substitution.
