Most of the time people think of brownies as glutenous, as too rich, and BAD for you... There are actually GOOD for you.
Black Bean Brownies
A delicious alternative to your 'regular' brownies.
- 1 ½ cup Black Beans (115-oz can, drained and rinsed very well)
- 2 tbsp Cocoa Powder
- ½ cup Quick Oats
- ¼ tsp salt
- ½ cup pure maple syrup or honey I prefer the maple Syrup over honey because honey loses a lot of the nutritional value when heated.
- ¼ cup coconut oil
- 2 tbsp pure vanilla extract
- ½ tsp baking powder
- ½ - ⅔ cup
Lily's Chocolate Chips Sweetened with Stevia(Not optional. Omit at your own risk.)
- Preheat oven to 350 F. C
- 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.
- Cook the black bean brownies 15-18 minutes, then let cool for at least 10 minutes before trying to cut. If they still look a bit undercooked, you can place them in the fridgeovernight and they will magically firm up! Makes 9-12 brownies.
The trick with these: serve them first, and then reveal the secret ingredient.
