Total Time:35 minutes
Yield:16 brownies 1x
14 oz can low sodium black beans, drained & rinsed
2 eggs, large
1/2 cup applesauce, unsweetened
15 small or 10-12 Medjool dates, pitted (1/2 cup packed)
2 tbsp brewed coffee (optional)
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup cacao powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup + 1/4 cup chocolate chips
Cooking spray (I use Misto)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 8 x 8 square baking dish with unbleached parchment paper and spray with cooking spray.
In a powerful blender or food processor add ingredients in the following order: eggs, applesauce, black beans, cacao powder, coffee, vanilla, baking soda, salt and dates; then process until smooth. Add 1/4 cup chocolate chips and stir to mix.
Pour batter into baking dish, top with 1/4 cup chocolate chips and bake for 30 minutes.
Remove from the oven and let brownies cool for 5 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack and let cool completely before slicing. Cut into 16 squares.
Store: Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
I have to say that it’s crucial you use parchment paper and let brownies cool before slicing.
