Double Chocolate Brownies (Gluten Free and Vegan)

I’ve always been suspicious of double chocolate brownies made with black beans. In times past they always tasted of beans, no matter what someone claimed. I think the real issue is the brownies were flourless and bound with eggs. These double chocolate brownies are held together with oat flour and it produces a cake like brownie. Don’t fear it! You will love them. You will find it hard to not indulge. Note: chill the brownies and serve cold. You will be rewarded for your patience.Double Chocolate Brownies that are Gluten Free and Vegan
