Ingredients

    Semisweet chocolate, 1 cup large chips
    Egg, fresh, 4 large
    Granulated Sugar, .5 cup
    Butter, unsalted, half stick
    Beans, black, 15 oz can
    Chickpeas (garbanzo beans), 15 oz can
    Flax Seed Meal (ground flax), 6 tbsp
    Cocoa, dry powder, unsweetened, .5 cup
    Baking powder, 1 tsp.
    Baking soda, 1/5 tsp.

Tips

The sugar can be adjusted for sweetness. I like things a bit less sweet than others. You can add salt for the rising agents, but there seems to be enough in the beans to warrant leaving out added salt.


Directions

Melt chocolate in a double boiler. Once melted, add butter in small chunks, stirring each chunk before adding the next.

Mix dry ingredients together in a bowl.

Process drained and rinsed beans in a food processor with eggs until beans are a smooth paste. Scrape into a large bowl. Stir in melted chocolate mixture and mix well. Add dry ingredients mixing until well-incorporated. Scoop into muffin cups (or spread into cocoa-dusted cake pan) filling each about 2/3 full.

Bake cupcakes for 20 minutes at 350 or until toothpick inserted comes out clean. I'm guessing here, but as a cake, it might be 35-40 minutes at 350.

Serving Size: makes 24 cupcakes, 2 per serving since they're so good and good for you.
