Black Bean Brownies

Hello Everyone! I am back with a new recipe that I’m sure you will love.

Today, I will be sharing my delicious and decadent black bean brownies! These brownies taste so amazing and are very easy to make. They are vegan, gluten free and are a one bowl recipe.

Brownies are one of my family’s favourite treats and I have been trying out different healthy brownie recipes that are guilt free! This recipe takes no time at all and is a great on-the-go snack.

Ingredients:

1 ½ cups of black beans (I use organic canned beans)

½ cup oat flour

2 Tbsp cocoa powder

½ cup chocolate chips (optional)

½ cup cranberries

1 cup honey

½ tsp baking powder

¼ cup coconut oil

1 pinch of salt
Steps:

  1. Drain and rinse the canned black beans.
  2.  Add all the ingredients to a food processor. If you don’t own a food processor, you can put the mixture in a blender. I highly recommend a food processor for a smooth batter consistency.
  3. Blend the batter until smooth.
  4. Grease a brownie pan tray with coconut oil or any other oil of choice.
  5. Pour the batter into the tray and bake at 350 F for 15-18 minutes.
  6. Allow the brownies to cool for 10 minutes.
  7. Serve and enjoy!
