Moist, low-carb, chocolatey brownie goodness—made from black beans. These brownies will give your taste buds what they want and keep you full.
Preheat the oven to 350ºF and grease a 9″ pie dish.
Take the black beans and process them in your food processor—or just mash them up really well. Once the beans are mashed up, stick them in a large mixing bowl.
Now, mix together the dry ingredients (except the stir-ins): cocoa powder, oats, flax, salt, cinnamon, Splenda (or stevia), and baking powder; process them a little bit. Add to the beans and mash it all together.
Now, add the honey and brown rice syrup and stir the mixture. Add the vanilla and coconut/vegetable oil(s), and stir again.
For these brownies, you are going to have to add some stir-ins, otherwise they will fall apart. It doesn’t matter what you decide to put in them, but you need to have at least a total of 1/2 cup. I added a 1/2 cup mixture of nuts, coconut, and chocolate chips, but of course, you can add whatever you like.
Fold your stir-ins into the batter. Pour the batter into the pie dish, and bake for 20-30 minutes.
Brownies are done when you put the poker in and it comes out clean, and the brownies are not runny in the center.
