Prep Time: ~ 5 min Cook Time: ~35 min Total Time: ~ 40 min
- 1 Can Black Beans
- 1/2 Cup Oats
- 1/2 Cup Grape seed Oil
- 3 Tablespoons Ground Flax Seed
- 1/4 Cup Cocoa Powder
- 1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
- 1 Tablespoon Vanilla
- 1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
- 1 Teaspoon Himalayan Salt
- 1/4 Cup Almond Milk
- 1/2 Cup Chopped Dark Chocolate
Step 1: Preheat oven to 425°F. Rinse and drain black beans and empty into food processor. Combine with oats and oil and blend.
Step 2: Combine 3 tablespoons of ground up flax seed, and stir in 7.5 tablespoons of water. Let sit for 5 minutes until a thick egg-like consistency forms. Flax eggs act as a great vegan binding ingredient!
Step 3: Add flax eggs, cocoa powder, brown sugar, vanilla, baking powder, salt, and almond milk to food processor and blend until smooth.
Step 4: Finely chop dark chocolate (or chocolate of your choice), and combine with brownie mix.
Step 5: Grease baking pan and pour in brownie mix. Bake for 35 minutes, and let stand for ~1 hour, then store in fridge (this allows the chocolate chunks to harden, adding a bit of a crunch).
