Chocolate Fudge Black Bean Brownies
This was my first attempt at black bean brownies, and they SURPASSED my expectations!!! I basically took a gamble with the ingredients, and somehow these brownies were perfection! I promise you that you will be missing out on a delicious dessert if you do not try these! The prep time is under 5 minutes and the recipe is fool-proof!
15 oz can of black beans reduced sodium
3 tbsp cocoa powder unsweetened
1/2 cup quick oats
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup stevia in the raw powder
3 tbsp coconut oil
3 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking powder
4 oz unsweetened applesauce Luck Leaf brand if possible
4 tbsp chocolate protein powder
1 large egg white
2-3 tbsp chocolate chips optional
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Gather all ingredients.
Drain the water from the black beans and rinse well with water.
Add all ingredients, except the chocolate chips, in the food processor and blend together for at least 1 minute. Make sure you scrape the sides of the processor and blend until all ingredients are very smooth.
Spray a pan with pam cooking spray (I used 13 x 9, but use 8 x 8 for thick brownies) and pour the brownie batter into the baking pan. If you want to add a little more chocolate to the brownies, sprinkle 2-3 tbsp of dark or milk-chocolate chips over the batter.
Place the brownie batter into the oven and cook on 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes before cutting into squares. ENJOY!!!!
