Whole Food-Based Black Bean Brownies

They're fudgy and chocolatey, and totally hit the spot when you're wanting a treat without the blood sugar spike.

Preheat oven to 350 F.


1 (15 oz.) can of unseasoned black beans, drained and rinsed

2 Tbsp cocoa powder

1/2 cup oats

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 cup maple syrup or honey

1/4 cup coconut oil

2 tsp vanilla

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2-2/3 cup (or a hefty handful) sugar-free chocolate chips from ChocZero

In a food processor or blender, add all ingredients except the chocolate chips. Blend until mostly smooth. It's fine if the oats don't break down all the way--the main concern is the beans.

Stir in the chocolate chips, then pour into a greased 8x8 pan.

Bake at 350 F for 15-18 minutes.

Once cooled, store in an airtight container and refrigerate.
