Black Bean Brownies (flourless)

I am always looking for sweets to eat, so when I found this recipe for Flourless Chocolate Cake/   I knew I had to try it.  It is really not cake at all but tastes more like brownies.


Black Bean Brownies
 
1 (15.5 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
3 eggs
3 tablespoons vegetable oil 
1/4 cup carob powder (you can use cocoa)
1 pinch salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
Stevia to equal 3/4 Cup Sugar
 1/2 cup Carob Chips ( you can use chocolate chips) 
Directions


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease an 8x8 square baking dish.

Combine the black beans, eggs, oil, carob powder, salt, vanilla extract and sugar in a blender; blend until smooth; pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle the chocolate chips over the top of the mixture.

Bake in the preheated oven until the top is dry and the edges start to pull away from the sides of the pan, about 30 minutes

  9. Hi, I'm a new follower from It's Friday I'm Hopping. The black bean brownies look very similar to some I made with a group of kids. They all claimed to hate black beans but somehow the pan of brownies disappeared very fast. They tasted really good!

  38. Only you would have thought to come up with beans and brownies and make it sound delicious Terry! lol. I think this sounds like a great alternative to those who have digestive issues and can't eat gluten.
