Number of Servings: 12


    1 ½ cups black beans (1 15-oz can, drained and rinsed)
    2 (heaping) tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
    ½ cup oats
    ¼ tsp salt
    1 egg
    2 packs sweetener of choice (equivalent to 2 tbsp sugar)
    ¼ cup applesauce
    1 tbsp vanilla extract
    ½ tsp baking powder
    ¼ cup chocolate chips
    ¼ cup chopped walnuts


Make sure to thoroughly blend the batter - the silkier the better.

Let the brownies cool for at least 10 minutes before trying to cut.


Step one. Preheat your oven to 350 F.
Step two. Into a food processor goes everything but the chocolate chips and walnuts.
Step 3. Turn that food processor on and blend until you have a silky batter. Fold in chocolate chips and chopped walnuts.
Step 4. Pour the brownie batter into a greased 8x8 pan or your favorite silicone baking mold. Bake until a toothpick inserted comes out clean, about 15 minutes.

Serving Size: Makes 12 brownies
