Black Bean Avocado Brownies

Sometimes chocolate is just a necessary part of life, as was the case this afternoon. I also had some avocado, black beans, and the last dregs of almond milk taking up space in my fridge, so why not mash it all together for some deliciousness. Ingredients:
  • 1 tbsp flaxseed
  • 2 (+2) tbsp almond milk
  • 1.5 cups of black beans
  • ½ an avocado
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • ½ cup coconut palm sugar or cane sugar
  • ½ cup cocoa powder
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ cup chocolate chips

  1. Blend flaxseed and 2 tbsp almond milk about 1 minute.
  2. Add in black beans, avocado, vanilla, and sugar and process until smooth.
  3. Add in cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and remaining 2 tbsp of almond milk, process until smooth, the batter should be thick.
  4. Pour into a greased pan, and sprinkle chocolate chips on top.
  5. Bake at 350F for 20-30 minutes or until knife comes out clean.
  I’ve tried a lot of black bean brownie or black bean chocolate cookie recipes before, but I think the addition of the avocado is really what gets these to the perfect creamy texture. Plus, they’re gluten-free and vegan if you use vegan chocolate chips.
