Black Bean Brownies

Black beans are a good source of potassium, iron, magnesium and fibre. Making this delicious dessert nutrient dense!

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups black beans 1 15-oz can, drained and rinsed very well
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup quick oats
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup to 2/3 cup chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • Combine all ingredients except chips in a good food processor, and blend until completely smooth. Really blend well. (A blender can work if you absolutely must, but the texture-and even the taste-will be much better in a food processor.)
  • Stir in the chips, then pour into a greased 8×8 pan. Optional: sprinkle extra chocolate chips over the top.
  • Bake the black bean brownies 15-18 minutes, then let cool at least 10 minutes before trying to cut.
