Flourless Brownies


Black Bean Brownies Recipe

This recipe has been altered from the Original Recipe by Chocolate Covered Katie

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups black beans (1 15-oz can, drained and rinsed very well) (250g after draining)

3 tbsp cocoa powder (10g)

1/4 cup Cream of Rice  (you could substitue 1/2 cup quick oats (40g))

1/4 tsp salt

1/3 cup honey

1 stevia packet

1/4 cup coconut oil (melted)

1 egg (optional - this is what I added to change up the recipe and it turned out delicious!)

2 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 cup to 2/3 cup chocolate chips (115-140g) (Not optional. Omit at your own risk.)

Total Time: 15m

Yield: 9-12 brownies


 

Instructions 

Black Bean Brownies Recipe: Preheat oven to 350 F. Combine all ingredients except chips in a good food processor, and blend until completely smooth. Really blend well. (A blender can work if you absolutely must, but the texture—and even the taste—will be much better in a food processor.) Stir in the chips, then pour into a greased 8×8 pan. Optional: sprinkle extra chocolate chips over the top. Cook the black bean brownies 15-18 minutes, then let cool at least 10 minutes before trying to cut. If they still look a bit undercooked, you can place them in the fridge overnight and they will magically firm up! Makes 9-12 brownies. The trick with these: serve them first, and then reveal the secret ingredient. In all the times I’ve served bean desserts, not one single person who didn’t know beforehand has ever guessed!

Homemade Melt-In-Your-Mouth Dark Chocolates

{paleo, dairy free, gluten free}

Ingredients:
* 1/2 cup coconut oil
* 1/2 cup cocoa powder
* 3 tbsp. maple syrup (or honey)
* 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract (optional)

Directions:
Melt the coconut oil in a pan over medium-low heat. Add all of the other ingredients and mix well. Transfer to a pan, I used a muffin/cupcake pan for easy, individual, round pieces of chocolate. Fill them as you desire. Freeze for at least 30 minutes or more. They will pop right out of the pan with a little push. =) 

Enjoy as they melt in your mouth!!!
