When I posted this photo of these brownies a couple of months ago I got a lot of requests for the recipe and have been meaning to share. Anyways, two months later here it is! I have tried a lot of different “black bean brownie” recipes and it seriously took me months to finally get it right. Believe it or not these are just as good, if not better, after being refrigerated for several hours! These actually have the consistency of brownies and a true chocolatey flavor! This also uses minimal ingredients which is always ideal for me. If a recipe has too many components I am bound to mess it up 🙂 These may be a fun weekend experiment if you are trying to stay on track through the Easter holidays and want to still get your chocolate fix without devouring 50 cadbury eggs! Here is what you need:
1 can black beans
1 scoop chocolate protein powder
3 tbs dark chocolate chips
2 tbs Peanutbutter & Co Dark Chocolate Dreams
3 packets Stevia
Preheat oven 350F
Drain beans and fill can halfway with water then blend
Pour mixture in mixing bowl and add protein powder, chocolate chips, and stevia
Mix well and pour into small baking pan
Bake for 20-25 minutes
Cool for 5 minutes and then top with Dark Chocolate Dreams Peanutbutter as frosting.
Also make sure to refrigerate for at least a few hours after making them so that the flavors blend. While you can barely tastes the beans to begin with, the longer they refrigerate the less beany/more chocolately they taste! I usually will refrigerate overnight.
This makes 8 servings
