    1 1/2 cups spelt flour
    1 tsp salt
    1 tsp baking powder
    2 cups sugar
    1 cup carob powder
    4 tsp fine coffee grounds
    1 1/2 cups almond slivers
    1 15 oz can black beans, rinsed and filled with new water
    1 tsp vanilla
    1 cup of water (eyeball it by filling up half the empty can)


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Mix together the flour with the salt and baking powder. Stir in sugar, carob powder, coffee grounds, and almond slivers.
Drain a can of black beans and rinse thoroughly until the water runs clear. Return the black beans back to the can and fill with water. Puree the beans and water. Add the puree to the dry mix along with the vanilla and extra cup of water. Stir to combine.

Pour the batter into two greased 8x8 pans. Bake for 25-30 minutes, rotating the pan around halfway through. When the brownies are finished they should be firm in the center and the edges will be slightly puffy and starting to pull away from the sides.

Let brownies cool completely then cut each pan into 16 squares for a total of 32 squares.

Serving Size: Makes 32 2"x2" squares
