I .....love chocolate.. I also do much much better with limited grain in my diet. More energy and vitality, no brain fog, no bloat.
So - for this years holiday parties -I will be making my grain free dark fudgey black bean brownies. If you have not tasted one of these beauties - I promise you - it will not disappoint. And best of all - each brownie only has 120 calories! Recipe below. Enjoy! #grainfree #holidaybaking #chocolatelover #glutenfree
Fudgey black bean brownies
Makes: 16 brownies
1 15-oz can black beans rinsed and drained
3 large eggs
3 Tbsp of canola oil
1 tsp vanilla 5 mL
¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
⅔ cup of coconut sugar
½ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
½ tsp finely ground or instant coffee (optional)
½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Wets: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Puree black beans in food processor into a rough paste. In a large bowl, mix together the bean puree, eggs, oil, and vanilla.
Dry: In a separate bowl, combine cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, salt, and coffee (if using). Add the dry ingredients to the wets, then stir in chocolate chips.
Bake: Grease an 8x8 or 9x9 inch pan, then line with parchment paper. Pour in batter and bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until the edges are visibly cooked and the center doesn't jiggle much when you shake the pan (a toothpick may still come out a little gooey, that's fine!)* Allow brownies to cool before cutting.
