Top Review by SweetySJD

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!
