How many times have you tried recipes for healthy brownies only for them to taste like black beans? There's only so much you can do to try and mask the taste but you still want high protein, gluten free brownies, so what are you to do? The answer is these delicious chocolate espresso brownies! Instead of black beans we use garbanzo bean flour which has a milder flavor that adapts well to the chocolate and espresso. Enjoy these high protein, energizing, and gluten free brownies!
