I have been in a baking mood recently, but it is so hard to find a dessert recipe that is not loaded with fat and sugar, while also being delicious.  This recipe is a spin on traditional fudge brownies, and I promise, not even the pickiest eater will know that there are black beans in them!

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups black beans (1 15-oz can, drained and rinsed very well)
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder- dutch or regular (add a little extra if desired)
  • 1/2 cup quick oats
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil (in liquid form)
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup to 2/3 cup dark chocolate chips

Method:

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Combine all ingredients except chips in a good food processor, and blend until completely smooth.

Stir in the chips, then pour into a greased 8×8 pan.

Cook the black bean brownies 15-18 minutes, then let cool at least 10 minutes before trying to cut.

Makes 9-12 brownies.
