You'll never guess that these brownies contain black beans, but you'll love what they do for the texture. These are some fudge-y brownies! The rich dark chocolate flavor is accented with the flavor of fresh orange and they're just sweet enough.

    These are sooo good. The texture is dense and the orange flavor rocks. I put coconut yogurt on top to make the best dessert ever.
