Fudgy Black Bean Brownies
These Fudgy Black Bean Brownies are a lightened up, fiber-packed version of your favorite chocolate treat! They satisfy the sweet tooth and provide some beneficial nutrients at the same time!
Servings: 12 servings
- 1 can no-salt-added or low sodium black beans drained and rinsed well
- 2 Tbsp unsweetened 100% cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats GF if needed
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1 very ripe banana
- 1 Tbsp avocado oil
- 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 scoop Further Food collagen powder optional**
- 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
- 3 Tbsp mini chocolate chips
Optional toppings: dark chocolate chips, chopped walnuts, sprinkles
Preheat oven to 350 F. Lightly grease an 8×8 pan with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
Combine all ingredients except chocolate chips in a food processor or a very good blender (like a Ninja or Vitamix), and blend until completely smooth, about 1-2 minutes. Scrape down the sides and continue blending/pulsing as needed.
Once the mixture is smooth, stir in the chocolate chips and pour into prepared 8×8 pan. (If you want to sprinkle extra chocolate chips and/or walnuts on top, do so now.)
Bake the brownies for ~20-25 minutes. Mine became more fudgy and cake-like around 24 minutes. I would recommend checking them around the 20-minute mark since all ovens cook a little differently!
Let brownies cool for about 10 minutes before cutting into them – if you can control yourself. ; )
