We tested many variations of black bean brownies until finding the best one, with the right balance of flavour and texture. It's even kid approved, we hope you like it too!
Black Bean Brownies
2 cups (345 g) cooked Flourist Black Beans
3 tbsp neutral oil
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup (30 g) cocoa powder
2/3 cup (140 g) sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp finely ground coffee
1/2 cup (60 g) semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350°F and line a 8-by-8-inch square pan with parchment paper.
Puree black beans in a food processor. Scrape down the bowl with a rubber spatula and add eggs, oil, and vanilla. Process again until smooth and pour into a medium mixing bowl.
In a separate bowl, stir together cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, salt, and ground coffee.
Add the dry ingredients to the bean puree and mix until combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Spread batter in prepared pan and smooth out the top. Bake for 30-40 minutes until a skewer inserted comes out clean and the top has set. Cool completely before slicing and serving.
