When I was growing up, my dad would sometimes call me a junk food junkie because I had such a sweet tooth. While I’m no longer a junk food junkie, at times I still have a RAGING sweet tooth! What’s a girl to do? She finds a better way to satisfy her cravings with nutritious recipes, that’s what. This recipe satisfies my sweet tooth without me having to sacrifice good nutrition. It’s sweetened with dates which are little nutrition bombs loaded with potassium, magnesium, iron, vitamin B-6, calcium, and fiber, while the black beans give the brownies their fugdy texture and deliver even more of the aforementioned nutrients PLUS protein…..in your dessert, for Pete’s sake! The other ingredients work in concert with these two to create an amazingly great tasting, healthy dessert that will have you singing their praises. I make these and freeze them and pull them out as I need them. I serve each one with 2-3 organic, sliced strawberries. Enjoy!
