Almost Paleo Brownies

My mom recently introduced me to this recipe when I was visiting her in Seattle and it is good!  The brownies are made with black beans, but you can’t tell at all.  These are healthy, not too sweet, and delicious.  They are also surprisingly easy to make.  I always preheat the oven when I begin baking and my goal is to finish mixing by the time the oven is preheated, but I usually fail.  Not this recipe; I was ready to go way before the oven was preheated!  I have a feeling I’ll be making these a lot!  Also, I call them “almost Paleo” because they are made with black beans, but whenever I eat Paleo, I eat beans.  Cutting out beans seems a little unnecessary since they are healthy!  Hope you enjoy this great recipe!
