When I first heard about this recipe, I thought it sounded disgusting. Who would eat sweet black beans? Surprisingly, you will have no idea there are any beans in this recipe. It's very healthy and loaded with fiber. Whenever I make black bean brownies, I'm stunned at how fast they disappear.
One word of advice . . . don't let anyone know what's in them until after they've had the first bite. Otherwise, you'll end up with kids wailing that it is too gross to try, when really, they'd love it. Enjoy!
1 15 oz can of black beans (I actually make my own, it's just under 2 cups)
1/2 c. cocoa powder
1/4 c. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 c. sugar or other sweetener of choice
3 Tblsp. coconut oil
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 350°. Lightly grease an 8x8 pan.
Blend all ingredients in the food processor or blender, until smooth. Pour into the pan and bake for 20-30 minutes or until the top is dry. Let cool before cutting it up, because the insides will be gooey!
I also like to add a drizzle of chocolate icing over the top. You can even stir extras into the batter before adding it to the pan. Try nuts, dried fruits, or even chocolate chips!
