What would you guess this pile of slop was meant to make?
What if I told you what was in the blender? Bananas, maple syrup, cocoa, cinnamon, vanilla, sugar, salt, oats, and black beans..yes..BEANS. What if I told you this combination made the silkiest brownies I have ever had? Would a picture help?
Black Bean Brownies
- 1 15oz can of black beans drained and rinsed (I used these ones because they are unsalted)
- 2 ripe bananas
- 1/3 cup maple syrup
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
- 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup raw sugar
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup oats
- 1 cup chocolate chips
Preheat your oven to 350. Grease your 8in pan. Combine all of your ingredients into a blender or a food processor and blend until smooth. Add chocolate chips and stir with a spoon. DO not blend the chips. Pour batter into your pan and bake for 30 min or until a toothpick comes out clean! SO easy! I also added a super secret ingredient for extra OOMPH..
Instant coffee for extra flavor! Seriously, these brownies are SO silky. They don’t have the texture of regular brownies, but boy are they good!! High in protein, and high in fiber..I’m sold. Lets just look at that picture one last time.
Q: What’s your favorite bean recipe? Link it to me! Beans beans the magical fruit, the more you eat the more you toot! I LOVE BEANS!
