With the holiday season upon us my brain & stomach automatically seek out baked goods! That can spell trouble for a clean eater. But I am doing my best to seek out clean baked goods, or clean up old classics, testing them out & then passing the successful recipes on to you! Our first baked good adventure was Black Bean Brownies. As you can see, they are kid tested & Fit Momma approved. Try out this recipe, share it with friends & family & let me know if they can figure out the "secret ingredient." Annie's guess for the secret ingredient was LOVE! Awwww...isn't she sweet?!?

1 can black beans (drained and rinsed well)
1/2 cup 100% cocoa
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup raw honey
1 tsp. vanilla
