DEELUSHOUS Black Bean Brownie Recipe

I should have posted this recipe years ago when I first had a taste of it as made by my dear friend, Chris.  So you have her to thank for being willing to share this recipe. *grin* Enjoy- and yes, I do mean ENJOY!  Not only are these delicious, but because of the REAL food that's used in them, you won't find yourself wolfing down the entire batch because the fiber and other REAL nutrients will satiate your appetite.  Thanks Chris, from me, for being willing to share this recipe!  Luv ya bunches!
