Double Chocolate Spinach Brownies
These chocolate treats are so yummy no one will know they are packed with protein, fiber, and nutrients from black beans and spinach. Even though you can’t taste the spinach it is really important that your child helps make this recipe so you aren’t hiding the veggies. Maybe making brownies with spinach will entice your little one to try spinach in other ways.
