I love this recipe! An easy, gluten free recipe for black bean brownies that have just the right combination of chocolate and cayenne to make you feel like you're having cafe and dulces in Mexico! Using a food processor is the easiest method, but a blender or even a potato masher can be used instead. My variation of a recipe found at LivingWithout.com.
