We viewed this recipe over at Tasty along with 18 million others & thought to ourselves, wow, what a shame they keep promoting the most unhealthy food & contributing toward obesity, diabetes, heart disease, environmental destruction and animal cruelty. We know we can make anything taste just as good without harming anyone so we are putting our cooking skills where our mouth is!

ENJOY! Sure these have a bit of sugar, but they are animal puss free & low fat & packed with black bean goodness! Our goal here is to EXCEED the garbage with healthier versions. You are going to love these & everyone who tries them will, too! DO NOT tell them they are vegan or they have beans! (unless they have allergies to any of the ingredients)
