Introduction

This recipe was featured on the Clean Eating Magazine website and I simply HAD to try it. I changed the servings to 20 instead of 8 as the website stated...so they're mere nibbles instead of big honking brownies. :-) I used canola oil instead of olive oil [because I'm not very keen on olive oil in baked goods] and some organic dark cherry vanilla chocolate instead of just plain ol' dark chocolate [because that's all I had on hand in my pantry].

I really like these and plan to make them again!

Number of Servings: 20

Ingredients

    1 ounce Seeds of Change Dark Chocolate with Cherries and Vanilla
    1 1/2 cup cooked black beans, rinsed and drained
    2 eggs
    1 egg white
    2 tablespoons canola oil
    1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
    1/2 cup honey


Directions

***Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8X8" baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.

***Melt the chocolate in a double boiler [I use a medium sized Pyrex bowl sitting in a medium saucepan with water in it on HIGH].

***Remove the bowl from the stove and mix all the ingredients with the chocolate. Either put the mixture in a food processor or use a stick blender to make the batter smooth.

***Transfer the batter to the prepared baking dish and bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and place on wire rack to cool.

Yields 20 gluten free chocolatey nibbles!

Number of Servings: 20
