Black Bean Brownies?

I saw the recipe below on Spark People, a site I really like. Now I love black beans and just might sell a kidney for chocolate, but combined? I just don't know. I will never make this since I don't use Splenda and using sugar would defeat the purpose (and I hate coffee), but if anyone gets a hankering for black bean brownies, let me know how they turn out!
