1 ½ cups black beans (or a 15-oz can, drained and rinsed very well)
2 tbsp cocoa powder
½ cup quick oats
¼ tsp salt
1/3 cup honey
2 tbsp sugar
¼ cup coconut or vegetable oil
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
½ tsp baking powder
½ cup to 2/3 cup chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350 F.
- Combine all ingredients except chips in blender, and blend until smooth.
- Stir in the chips, then pour into a greased 8×8 pan.
- Bake the black bean brownies 15-18 minutes, then let cool at least 10 minutes before trying to cut. If they appear undercooked, place in the fridge overnight and they firm up!
