Flour-less Brownies made with Oats and Black Beans

This is a decadent dessert that is a total retake on the typical “flourless” chocolate brownie which incorporates two different types of fiber/resistant starches: black beans and oatmeal. Both have proven to be beneficial for overall gut health, weight and fat loss and is a great way of getting carbohydrates into our body without taking the calorie or insulin spike that you would normally get from starchy carbohydrates. Resistant starches (RS) actually bypass the intestinal track which in turn feeds the friendly bacteria in you lower intestine and colon.
