Ingredients

  • 15 oz black beans (drained and rinsed)
  • 1 cup coconut sugar (or brown sugar)
  • cup oat flour (see notes section)
  • cup cocoa powder
  • ½ cup soymilk
  • cup peanut butter (if you get the cup wet before putting peanut butter in, it makes it easier to spoon this out)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 pinch salt
  • ½ cup non-dairy chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
  • In a food processor, process all ingredients except for chocolate chips. Add more soymilk if needed but not too much. Once mixture is smooth, fold in chocolate chips, but don't process.
    15 oz black beans, 1 cup coconut sugar, ⅓ cup oat flour, ⅓ cup cocoa powder, ½ cup soymilk, ⅓ cup peanut butter, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 2 teaspoons vanilla, 1 pinch salt
  • Oil or line a 9x9" pan. Place brownie mixture in pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Check with a toothpick
  • Take out of the oven and let it cool for a bit. It will firm up as it sits in pan and cools

Notes

To make oat flour, get ½ cup of old fashioned, or rolled oats. Blend in a blender until it breaks down into a flour. 
If you don't have oat flour, you can also use whole wheat flour, or all purpose flour. 
To make this gluten free, use a gluten free baking flour, or certified gluten free oats.
