      Loved them! I love recipes that have unusual ingredients! No one guessed that there were black beans in these. I made exactly as written. The consistency was not like a cookie, more like a quick bread or muffin, but yummy nonetheless! Thanks! I’ll be making this again for sure!

      A good way to sneak fiber into a treat. I also added some chocolate chips.

      These are terrific and I'd change the name because without it, no one will have a clue about the black beans. The taste reminds me of pumpkin bread, believe it or not. My husband took a tray of these to the office and got lots of compliments. I guess this goes to show that anything with butter and sugar tastes yummy. Great job on a healthy creation with these ingredients and good luck in the contest!
