Classic Black Bean Recipe

  This weekend I decided to experiment.  After playing with several variations, I came up with the perfect combination of sweetness and dark chocolate bitterness without any bean flavor.  I even gave it to my son and he had no idea! Preparation Time:  15 minutes + Bake: About 15 min = Total time 30 min Makes about 9 brownies From your Pantry: 1 can Classic Black Beans drained and rinsed ½ cup oats ½ tsp baking powder 2 Tbs cocoa powder ¼ tsp salt 1/3 cup maple syrup 2 Tbs sugar ¼ cup coconut oil 2 tsp vanilla ½ bar of dark chocolate, broken into pieces Instructions:  Preheat oven to 350F. Grease 8x8 pan Combine all ingredients in food processor (except chocolate bar) Mix until well blended – this can take about 10 min If you need to save time, use oat flour (see tips to make your own) Fold in dark chocolate chunks and sprinkle a few pieces on the on the top Bake in for 14-16 minutes Cool and serve slightly warm    Food Science Tip:  Grind oats in coffee grinder to save time on blending and give you a smoother finished texture.
