Sweet and chewy gluten-free brownies made with black beans (but you’d never know it from the taste)! So simple and amazingly delicious! Yield:
16 squares Ingredients:
2 cups cooked black beans (or 1 can, rinsed and drained)
1/3 cup melted butter*
1/4 cup cocoa powder
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup sugar (or 1/2 cup honey)
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup finely chopped walnuts (optional) Instructions:
1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. In a food processor bowl or blender, combine the black beans, eggs, melted butter, cocoa powder, vanilla, and sugar. Pulse or blend until smooth (or as smooth as possible).
2. Grease an 8×8-inch glass baking dish. Pour the batter into the greased dish. Sprinkle chocolate chips and nuts (if using) over the top and use a spatula to push them down into the batter just a little (but not too much; they will sink some while the brownies bake).
3. Bake at 350 degrees for 40-50 minutes, until brownies are set in the middle. Watch the edges for excess browning if you’re not sure they’re done. (Mine seem to take a full 50 minutes, and are still chewy but not gooey.)
Cool and then chill before serving! Store in fridge.
