Black Bean Brownies
Serves: 16
These black bean brownies are so chocolatey and rich that no one will suspect there's almost two cups of beans in them!
  • 1 can (14 oz) no-salt black beans, drained and rinsed
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ½ cup cocoa powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Tbs. milk
  • 1 tsp. vegetable oil
  • ½ tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. ground coffee
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ½ cup mini chocolate chips, divided
  • 1 Tbs. sprinkles, optional
  1. Line an 8x8 in pan with foil and cooking spray, set aside. Then pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine the beans, sugar, cocoa powder, eggs, milk, oil, baking powder, baking soda, ground coffee, salt and ¼ cup mini chocolate chips in a food processor. Process for 5-10 seconds and then scrape down the sides with a spatula. Process for another 5-10 seconds until everything is well blended together.
  3. Stir in the remaining ¼ cup chocolate chips.
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and top with sprinkles, if desired. Bake for 28-30 minutes. A toothpick inserted into the center should come out with just a few crumbs attached. Cool completely (about 30-45 minutes) before cutting into squares and serving.
  5. Store leftovers in the refrigerator in a plastic bag or tupperware container. They will stay good for a few days, if they last that long!
