Grain-Free Gluten-Free Black Bean Brownies (Allergen-Free)

Gluten Free Black Bean Brownies

Bean flours create higher risen baked goods, but many of the flours create a bitter flavor. One way of getting around this is by using cooked beans. I prefer to use refried black beans. They’re so creamy and not bitter at all. The dark color is perfect for chocolate dishes such as this gluten free brownie recipe. It is dairy-free, gum-free, and grain-free, techinically, as buckwheat is a seed, not a grain. Some refer to buckwheat as pseudograin.
