You know the people who love to cook and experiment in the kitchen? That is not me. I wish it was. I am always a little envious of the people who talk about cooking like it is therapy. I love the idea of going into the kitchen and starting with a recipe as a base, and then making it my own with different seasonings and spices, but in reality I like to get in and out of the kitchen as quickly as possible.
I also like to wait until I am already hungry to start thinking about what I want to eat, or at least I used to until I realized that 1). waiting until I am hungry to start thinking about what to eat leads me to make less-than-healthy decisions and 2). planning ahead makes life a lot easier with a toddler in the house. This realization is what made me start thinking about meal planning and prepping.
I know, I know what you are thinking. How could Black Bean Brownies be any good?
Well, I have to tell you something this healthier dessert is my new favorite and I guarantee your kids will love it, too! (But, you do not have to tell them there is black beans in it, unless you want to)
