This is one of those rare times that I post a dessert recipe, but hey, it’s Christmas time! You may have a couple of these tasty black bean brownies as your Meal 5 snack with a short glass of unsweetened almond milk, or bring along a tray as a healthy treat for Christmas parties! We hope that you enjoy this healthy treat, & we wish you all a very Merry Christmas, & to all of our Jewish friends, Happy Hanukah!

Mangiare, Piaccia! Eat, Enjoy!
