What better way to get all the benefits of beans than eating them with chocolate! These black bean brownies are from Chocolate Covered Katie — if you don’t follow her and LOVE plant-based treats, you must.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups black beans (1 15-oz can, drained and rinsed very well)
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup quick oats
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup, honey, or agave
  • 1/4 cup coconut or vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup to 2/3 cup chocolate chips
  • optional: more chips, for presentation

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. 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.)
  3. Stir in the chips, then pour into a greased 8×8 pan.
  4. Optional: sprinkle extra chocolate chips over the top. 
  5. Cook the black bean brownies 15-18 minutes, then let cool at least 10 minutes before trying to cut. If they still look a bit undercooked, you can place them in the fridge overnight and they will magically firm up! 

Notes

I like to add some crushed walnuts on top!
