Black Bean brownies

This recipe is directly from Minimalist Baker with a few tweaks. I've used this recipe way before I was trash free and realized I do not need to change a thing except where I source these ingredients. The best brownie recipe I have ever used. So yummy!


1 3/4 cup cooked black beans
2  farmers market eggs (or flax eggs if vegan)
3 tbspns coconut oil
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
pinch of salt
1/2 cup maple syrup/coconut sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Optional but preferred: walnuts, dried cherry etc…
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. Food process or blend all ingredients together except chocolate chips (if too thick add a little milk or water, but should semi thick)
3. Put chocolate chips in and stir

4. Pour in greased muffin pan 3/4 full in each one
5. Bake 20-30 minutes (check middle, should be fudgy)
6. YUM!
