Black Bean Brownies

Thursday, July 14, 2011

Yes, you read that title correctly.
These moist, rich, delicious brownies were made with black beans.

This was also one of the easiest recipes I have ever made. 
You simply throw all of the ingredients into a blender, and blend! 
After blending stir 1/2 cup of chocolate chips into the batter, and pour into a baking pan. 
The recipe calls for the brownies to cook at 350 degrees (180 degrees Celsius) for 30 minutes. 
I am dealing with an oven that is Celsius and is difficult to determine the temperature, so I kept a close eye on my brownies. They ended up being done in a mere 15 minutes. I would highly recommend keeping an eye on these and check them often.

1 Can of Black Beans (15.5 oz), drained and rinsed
3 eggs
3 Tbsp Oil (I used Canola Oil)
1/2 Cup of Cocoa Powder 
1/2 Tsp Baking Powder
Pinch of Salt
1 Tsp Vanilla 
3/4 Cup Sugar
1/2 Cup Chocolate Chips (optional) *Don't blend these with the rest of the ingredients*

I was shocked when I tasted these, and I hope you will give them a try! 
A delicious, healthy alternative to a classic treat. They are rich in flavor, so you don't need to have much in order to satisfy your sweet tooth!
