Black Bean Brownies
A delicious black bean brownie recipe the entire family will love.
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
2 1/4 cups raw sugar
1 1/4 cup cocoa
4 tsp instant coffee powder
1 1/2 cups chopped pecans or hazelnuts.
15 oz can black beans, rinsed and filled with new water
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup of water (eyeball it by filling up half the empty can).
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Mix together the flour, sugar, cocoa, salt, baking powder, cocoa, instant coffee and nuts.
Puree the black beans with 1/2 cup of water in a food processor.
Add the black beans to the dry ingredients.
Add vanilla and stir adding water – up to one cup – until mix is the consistency of brownie mix.
Pour into greased and floured 9 x 13 baking pan. Bake for 25 minutes. It’s important not to over bake in the oven because they will keep baking once you take them out. Let brownies cool completely then use a 2×2 in cookie cutter to cut into 24 squares.
