Fudgy Black Bean Brownies

I know, I know – you’re reading this and feeling a little skeptical about the combination between black beans and brownies. But let me assure you, there is nothing to fear! Beans are a genius way to healthify your desserts, with zero compromise on flavor. My niece and nephew did not even notice the difference! 

Adding black beans to this recipe makes brownies that are higher in protein and fiber- which will help to stabilize your blood sugars. The higher protein and fiber content will help you feel more satiated so you don’t eat that whole pan of brownies.  Let’s get going with these because my mouth is watering!

Preheat the oven to 325F degrees. Add the black beans, oat flour, cocoa powder, maple syrup, baking soda, and salt to a food processor. Pulse for around 10 seconds, or until everything is blended in well. Add to a large bowl. Melt the chocolate chips with the coconut oil using either a microwave or double pot steamer. If melting in a pot, pay close attention to make sure the chocolate doesn’t burn.

Add the melted chocolate and coconut oil mixture, whisked eggs, and walnuts to the bowl with the blended ingredients, and whisk together well until you have a consistent batter. Spread the batter into a 9 x 9 inch parchment paper-lined square pan. Bake at 325F for 25 minutes. Once done, remove from the oven and allow to completely cool. Cut into 9 squares and you know what to do next!

Enjoy the decadent and delicious flavor that these brownies offer! Keep them around the house for a treat or bring to work for that midday snack you need to power through the rest of your day.  Have we convinced you yet?
