Nutritional values

Black beans belong to the legume family and therefore score with a lot of protein. Our body needs this for muscle building, among other things, which makes them perfect for athletes. 

These vegan brownies with black beans are also gluten-free if you make sure that the oat flakes are gluten-free when you buy them.
