Black Bean Brownies – all chocolate and no guilt!
You’d never guess these rich, velvety, flourless chocolate treats are made with pureed black beans! Adam, my 16 year old devoured them. I told him afterwards what they were made from and he didn’t flinch! He said all he tasted was chocolate. I love when you go out of the way to try new recipe that is really healthy and it’s a hit….well one teenager converted…two to go…. Another option would be to swap the beans for cooked mashed sweet potato. I have to try this version. I will post up when I do. On the nutrition front these brownies are packed full of fibre, protein, iron and magnesium – all energy boosting nutrients.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8×8” baking pan with nonstick coconut oil spray.
- In a high-speed blender or food processor, combine egg, black beans, avocado, vanilla, coconut sugar, cocoa powder, coconut oil and baking powder.
- Mix until a soft batter forms. Fold in chocolate chips. Pour batter into prepared pan.
- Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the centre of the brownies is set. Cool completely before slicing and serving.
