That’s right, brownies made from black beans. I know it sounds a bit weird. Who puts beans in brownies? I don’t know what would make someone think of using black beans in a chocolaty dessert but it works. They’re so yummy and they’re actually good for you! My mom sent me this recipe about a week ago and I’ve already made it four times. I know anyone who likes chocolate desserts will love this one!
1 19oz/540ml can black beans (drained & rinsed)
2 ripe bananas
1/4 cup cocoa
2-3 tbsp sugar or agave syrup (I only used 2 tbsp agave syrup)
1/2-1 tsp pure almond extract
1/4 cup chocolate chips (optional)
1/4 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 325F
In a food processor combine beans, bananas, cocoa, sugar/syrup, & almond extract. Blend until smooth.
In a medium bowl, combine batter, chocolate chips, and walnuts and mix well.
Pour brownie batter into a lightly greased cake pan and bake for 1hr 15min.
Let cool completely before serving (trust me, it tastes so much better once it’s cooled and had time to firm up a bit)
