If you’re a chocoholic like us and want a guilt free chocolate treat, then this one is for you! Don’t be fooled by the name, this healthy treat will leave you feeling super satisfied. Here is what you’ll need:
1 ½ cups black beans (1 15-oz can, drained and rinsed very well)
2 tbsp cacao powder (10g)
½ cup quick oats (40g)
¼ tsp salt
1/3 cup pure maple syrup, honey, or agave
Pinch of stevia OR 2 tbsp sugar
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
½ tsp baking powder
½ cup to 2/3 cup chocolate chips
Step 1: Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Combine all ingredients except for the chocolate chips in a food processor until completely smooth (a blender will work too)
Step 2: Stir in chocolate chips to brownie batter. Line a tray with baking paper then pour in the mixture.
Step 3: Cook the brownies for 15-18 minutes then let cool for 10 minutes before cutting
*If the brownies are a little bit under cooked don’t worry! Place them in the fridge overnight and they will firm up.
Recipe makes 9-12 serves. Enjoy!
