Goji & Macadamia Brownies !!!

OMG!!! These brownies are amazing I came up with these delicious brownies the other night and just had to share this recipe with you all. These brownies are not only delicious but also nutritious they have a secret superfood ingredient Black Beans !! Which are packed full of both protein and fibre in one cup of black beans you are getting no only 15g of protein which is equivalent to 55g of chicken but also 15g of fibre which the same as eating 3 cups of broccoli. This protein-fibre combination is great for the digestive system, regulating your blood sugar, and aiding your cardiovascular system. They are also full of antioxidants from the same family of phytonutrients that are found in blueberries, grapes and acai berries.
