I have a sweet tooth, I mean I can’t go out to a restaurant a not order dessert, no matter how full I may be I always have space for dessert. However during the week I try not to eat that many sweets. That’s why I wanted to find a recipe for “healthy” desserts… so, after a lot, and I mean A LOT of research I decided to make some black beans brownies…That’s right, you read correctly, black beans brownies!
I really don’t like any kinds of beans, but I thought I should give this recipe a try. And it turned out to be great!
- 1 can black beans (rinse very well)
- 1 cup of cocoa
- 1/2 shredded coconut
- 1/3 cup 70% dark chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup sugar or sweetener
- 2 eggs
- 1 tbs coconut oil
- A pinch of baking powder
- Chopped walnuts for topping (optional)
Just mix it all together (except the chocolate chips) in a blender or food processor and pour the mix into your baking dish ( I used oven proof cupcake liners) and add the chocolate chips on top and walnuts. Bake at 350 F for about 30 min.
I hope you like it!
