baking, Cooking with Essential Oils

Flourless Peppermint Black Bean Brownies

Black bean brownies are a delicious and nutritious twist to a traditional chocolate brownie. You might be nervous about baking with black beans, but don’t be—they have a very mild flavor and are extremely rich, creamy, and full of protein!
You can also boost the flavor of your brownie with essential oils such as PeppermintWild OrangeCinnamon, or even Lavender.
