My heart leapt within me! I jotted down the ingredients, raced to the store, scrambled to make my purchases, took the stairs two-at-a-time back up to my kitchen (we live in a 6th floor walk-up btw), and like a frantic whirlwind whipped together this recipe. I was quaking in anticipation for Peanut Butter Cookie "Dough" and Chocolate Fudge Brownie "Batter." And then...
We tasted it.
I can't overstate this. It. Tasted. Terrible. I was so disappointed by the result that I didn't even bother to stage the pictures, or clean my kitchen. As the mirage of a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup dissolved, I sat dejected and alone, exhausted from my toiling, while my husband cleaned up the kitchen. The bitter taste of disappointment was very much like... well, beans.

|You have to admit, it looks good right? And it smelled amazing!|
I had high hopes for this recipe. I'm always looking for creative ways to make things with healthy ingredients, and beans are so good for you. Secondly, gluten allergies run in my family and I was so excited at potentially giving my brother and step-mom something delicious that they could enjoy. And then the Universe said, "Think again sucka!"
Let's get down to brass tacks. Here's the recipe, I don't want to acknowledge where I got this because the author thinks this recipe is just the bees-knees and well... I don't. But with some tweaking (and I mean major tweaking), this could have some potential.
