Double-Chocolate Black Bean Brownies, oh my

I am not sure I love anything more than I love a chocolate brownie or cake or cookie.  I am human and I am a woman and at this point in my life I refuse to live life depriving myself of certain foods I like.  So... in comes the flour-less double chocolate black bean brownie and yes, they are amazing!!

Here's how to make a pan of your own that the whole family will want to devour too.

                

Ingredients:
  • 1 can organic black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup stevia or xylitol
  • 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened coconut milk (or almond milk)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla 
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon of freshly ground coffee
  • 1/2 cup Enjoy Life mini chocolate chips, divided


Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350° F.  Grease a nonstick 8 x 8-inch square baking pan with baking spray and line with parchment paper to prevent sticking.

Blend the black beans, eggs, cocoa powder, stevia, coconut oil, coconut milk, vanilla, baking soda, baking powder and ground coffee in the blender until smooth and pour into a bowl. Fold in 1/4 cup Enjoy Life chocolate chips until combined.  Pour the brownie batter into the prepared pan.  Sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips evenly over the top of the brownies. 

Bake the brownies for approximately 30 to 32 minutes.  Allow the brownies to cool completely before slicing them into squares.

Makes 12 squares. Top with berries for a delightful dessert!!

If you are following the 21 Day Fix or the Portion Fix the exchange is:
1 serving yellow
1/2 serving purple (for the berries)

ENJOY!
