Black Bean Brownies, Gluten Free

Yup, your eyes do not deceive you... black bean, gluten free brownies. Before you click away, I promise they taste just as good as regular brownies. The only difference is these are gluten free and have less fat and more protein. They are great as a treat in the afternoon with cup of decaf coffee... absolutely delish! This recipe is adapted from Skinny Taste. Gina you are awesome. 

What you need:  
1 (14 oz) canned organic black beans, rinsed and drained
2 large eggs
1/2 cup cocoa powder
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon of salt 
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon avocado oil
1 Tablespoon local grass-fed milk 
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon of instant coffee
1 cup mini chocolate chips, divided in half (Toll House)

What you do:

1. Crank it, preheat the oven to 350° F
2. Spray a 9 x 9-inch square baking pan with non-stick spray and line with parchment paper, leave tails on each side so you can pull it out
3. Rinse and drain your black beans
4. Fling all of your ingredients into your food processor save 1/2 cup of chocolate chips
5. Pulse the food processor until you have a perfectly mixed brownie batter
6. Spread into prepared pan
7. Sprinkle your reserved chocolate chips
8. Bake for 25-30 minutes, check with a skewer, it will be a bit fudgey 
9. Cool on a wire rack
10. Eat greedily... I mean with restraint, I mean give half to your friends so you don't the whole batch in one day. 


As always, much love, many blessings, and happy baking!
