Dark Chocolate Black Bean Brownies Recipe
1 15.5 oz. can black beans, thoroughly rinsed and drained
1/2 teaspoon aluminum free baking powder
1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon unrefined sugar
1/4 cup dark cocoa powder
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon instant coffee granules
1/4 cup walnuts, chopped, optional
1/3 cup dark chocolate chips, more if you like
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place parchment paper in the bottom of an 8×8″ baking pan. Grease the parchment paper. This will be your security blanket to make sure the brownies don’t stick to the pan!!
Place all the ingredients except chocolate chips and walnuts in a food processor or blender and pulse thoroughly until smooth and well combined.
Pour batter in the baking dish. Top with nuts and chocolate chips. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the top is dry and edges begin to pull away from the baking dish. Cool completely before cutting.
