Ingredients: 

  • 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

Directions:

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).
