Guilt-free Fudge Brownies

What you need: 

15 ounces canned black beans, drained and rinsed
2 bananas
1/2 cup agave nectar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2/3 cup quick cooking oats
1/2 cup walnuts, optional
1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, optional

What you do: 

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and lightly grease an 8x8" pan. Place black beans, bananas, agave nectar, cocoa powder, cinnamon, and vanilla extract into a food processor or blender. Blend until smooth.
2. Move the wet ingredients to a large mixing bowl and fold in oats; as well as walnuts and chocolate chips if you opted for the extra fun. When the oats and other ingredients are evenly distributed, pour the brownie batter into the prepared square pan.
3. Bake black bean brownies for about 30 minutes or until a toothpick can be inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow the brownies to cool in pan on a before slicing.
You may have to employ a protection system to keep you family and friends, or yourself, from devouring too soon.

Had to tweak this a bit based on what ingredients I had at home, and it came out well. Enjoyed these brownies with a vanilla vegan latte Cool


This was actually really good!! Really easy to make from blender to pan to oven and I added vegan chocolate chips and a handful of raw walnuts.

I brought it into my sculpture class and it was a big hit!
