Black Bean Brownies

"This recipe is special for two reasons. My husband raises black beans in his garden and we both love coffee. So this recipe uses both! Also, I have just completed a diet and I've been cooking and baking with healthier ingredients to maintain the healthier version of me! The black beans are healthier to use instead of white flour."
