Black Bean Brownies – Flourless and Delicious!

A dear friend of mine tried these and shared her recipe.  Once I discovered these are only an average of 115 calories each and they’re SUPER easy to make, I had to try them!   You literally dump all the ingredients into a blender, pulse, and bake.  Yes, they’re really – that easy….

Preheat oven to 350°.

In a blender add the following ingredients:

  • 15 oz can (1 1/2 cups) black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/3 cup Maple syrup or Agave, pure
  • 1/2 cup Oats
  • 1/2 tsp Baking powder
  • 2 tbsp Cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1 pinch Stevia, Zing or 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp Vanilla flavoring
  • 1/4 cup coconut or vegetable oil

Pulse until blended really smooth.  This is important – the better you blend it – the better it will taste!  Once blended, mix in a handful of dark chocolate chips.

Spray a brownie pan really well with Coconut Oil Spray and pour the mixture into the pan. Sprinkle extra chocolate chips over the top, if desired. Cook the black bean brownies 15-20 minutes, then let cool at least 10 minutes before trying to cut.  Makes 9-12 brownies.

TADA!  When I originally posted this picture, a friend pointed out that these were in a “Temptations” dish – how appropriate!
