Fool your friends with these super tasty and healthy treats and see if they can tell the difference! Black beans are super boosting for the kidneys and adrenal glands so perfect to unwind with after a long day 🙂
Ingredients: (makes 8-10)
1 x 400g can organic black beans
¾ cup coconut palm sugar OR 1/3 cup raw honey
2 Tbsp. coconut oil, plus extra for greasing the pan
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa or raw cacao powder
1-½ Tbsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp Baking powder (optional for fluffier bakes)
1 pinch sea salt
Walnuts, previously soaked and dried, or other brownie toppings (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Rinse beans very thoroughly and drain them completely. Now do it again. You really don’t want any “beany” tasting liquid in your brownies!
In a blender, add rinsed and drained beans, eggs, vanilla, coconut oil, sugar or honey, and cocoa powder. Blend until smooth, then add the salt and pulse until well mixed. Batter will be thin.
Grease an 8″x8″ baking dish liberally with coconut oil, and pour batter into dish. Top with optional walnuts or other toppings.
Bake for 30 minutes or until the top and sides are set, and the insides are just a little soft.
Cool before serving and enjoy!
