Black Bean Brownies


Black Bean Brownies

Brownies with…beans??  Yes, believe it. And they are DELICIOUS.  Black beans make these a gluten-free and protein- and fiber-packed dessert or snack  you can feel good about, with zero “beany” flavor.  Oh, and you can make them a in a blender, so they are super easy.

2 cups black beans (rinsed if canned)
3 eggs
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/3 cup oil, coconut, grapeseed, or canola oil
1/2 cup honey or agave nectar
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1/2 cup chocolate chips or chopped nuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350. Oil an 8×8 pan. Place all ingredients except chocolate chips in a  food processor or blender. Blend till well mixed. Stir in chocolate chips. Spread into pan and bake for 30 minutes.
