Power Packed Brownies


This recipe is courtesy of my dear friend, Jessica Yang, who is a future Registered Dietitian!

These brownies are a sneaky way to add protein into your desserts. Don’t worry, the beans don’t affect the brownie texture at all. If you don’t believe me, try it for yourself!

Servings: 8
