I love brownies. You will likely see many brownies at spabettie. These are some of the most intensely chocolatey brownies I have ever had, and knowing they are full of good-for-you fiber makes them more yum. I store them in the refrigerator, which somehow makes them Even More Yum. Outrageous.
1 can black beans, rinsed
3 tablespoons butter, melted
¾ cup sugar
½ cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ cup mini chocolate chips
to frost: ½ cup mini chocolate chips
½ tablespoon butter
Aside from the chocolate chips, I blend all ingredients in my food processor:
Puree black beans. Add eggs, oil + vanilla, blend. Add sugar + cocoa powder, process. Stir in ½ cup chocolate chips. Transfer batter to a prepared (buttered, what-have-you...) 9x9 pan, bake 30-35 minutes @ 350.
After brownies have cooled, melt ½ cup chocolate chips + ½ tablespoon butter. Spread over brownies, cool in refrigerator.
This is already gluten free, and is easily made vegan. I swapped the oil + butter with Earth Balance, Ener-G egg replacer for egg, and while I could not find mini chips, I used vegan regular size.
Have a delicious day, don't forget dessert!
