Black Bean Brownies

Katie Quinn

These brownies are a great alternative to traditional brownies!

Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups black beans (that's one 15-oz can), drained and rinsed
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup quick oats (or regular oats will work, too)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 cup coconut or vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 2/3 cup chocolate chips

Let's get Cooking...

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Combine all ingredients except chips in a food processor (I used my Vitamix blender), and blend until completely smooth. Stir in the chips, then pour into a greased pan.
  2. I sprinkled extra chocolate chips over the top, because I can't get enough chocolate. Cook the black bean brownies 15-20 minutes, then let cool. (Or be like me and take a bite right away--they'll just be mushy but still awesomely delicious). You can place them in the fridge overnight and they will firm up nicely.
