Brownie Black Bean

Brownie Black Bean

These brownies are truly made out of cooked black beans.  There is no flour or egg involved in this recipe.  If you didn’t know these brownies were made from black beans you would never know the difference.

Full of protein, easy on the budget and for those who are into food storage, a great way to make a special treat.

1 3/4 cups cooked black beans or one 15 ounce can of black beans.  I used one pint jar of black beans that I had canned.
1/2 cup honey, maple syrup, agave nectar you choose
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 Tablespoons canola oil
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)
1/2 cup pecans or walnuts (optional)

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease a 8×8 baking dish.

In a blender or food processor dump in black beans, honey, cocoa powder, vanilla, oil and baking powder.

Process until everything is smooth.

Pour into your baking dish.

Sprinkle chips or nuts on top of brownie batter.

Bake 45 to 50 minutes.

Cool and ENJOY!
