Black Bean Brownies

These brownies are lower fat, high fiber and gluten-free. And they taste good too!

Combine in food processor bowl:
  • 2 cups cooked black beans, rinsed and drained (one tin)
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tbsp butter or oil
  • 1 tsp instant coffee (optional- we do not prefer this)
  • 1/4 cup cocoa
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar or sweetener of choice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon each baking powder and baking soda (optional if you want a cake-like brownie)
Process for 2 minutes until smooth. Put into a greased 8 inch square pan and bake for 30 minutes at 350 F. Sprinkle with chocolate chips before baking if desired.
