I hope you enjoy my yummy healthy snack, perfect for quarantine! They aren’t just regular brownies, because we all know, those pile on the fat. These are Flower-less, Fat Burning Brownies!!
1 cup canned and cooked black beans, drained and rinsed.
(I use organic canned black beans)
2 medium eggs
1 tbsp +- 2 tsp olive oil
2 tbsp pure cocoa powder
½ cup (about 10-15) dates, soaked for 1 hr, then chopped
½ tsp apple cider vinegar
⅛ tsp sea salt
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp pure vanilla extract
2-4 tbsp dark chocolate chips
½ cup chopped hazelnuts, (any will do).
Preheat oven to 350F
Drain and rinse the black beans well
Add all ingredients (except for chocolate chips and chopped hazelnuts) in a blender and blend until smooth
Slowly stir in chocolate chips and hazelnuts, or (any other nuts)
Pour batter into a rectangular baking pan that has been brushed with coconut oil, or olive oil and lined with parchment paper
Bake at 350F for 20-25 minutes, do not overcook
Brownies are ready when an inserted toothpick comes out clean
Allow to cool and then cut into squares
Have you tried flour-less black bean brownies before?
