Sometimes you get the chance to sink your teeth into something divinely delicious that you later discover wasn’t sinful at all. Then you do a little party dance. Well, this is one of those! These brownies are made with black bean, are gluten free and low in sugar. Yet, they still have that rich chocolate flavour and fluffy, cake-like texture you crave in a brownie.

CAUTION: As you scroll down to check out the ingredients for these Seductively Delicious Coconut Chocolate Cinnamon Black Bean Brownies be wary – they are not traditional ingredients! You may even think, “She’s off her rocker with this list of ingredients.” But, truly these brownies will blow your mind – they did mine! In fact, these brownies are so delicious even my pickiest little dude ate them (until his big sister told him he was eating beans…then it was GAME OVER).

The best part about these brownies is you’re less than 40 minutes away from tasting them! Ridiculously easy to prepare and filled with fibre and protein, these brownies are the ultimate dessert!

RECIPE:

Seductively Delicious Coconut Chocolate Cinnamon Black Bean Brownies

People are not going to listen to you (or believe you) when you tell them these were made with black beans, olive oil and balsamic vinegar because they’ll be too busy moaning loudly about the delicious texture and chocolatey-flavour of these brownies.

Ingredients:

1 can (15 oz) organic black beans, rinsed well and drained

2 free range eggs

1/2 cup of certified organic Cacao powder (could use cocoa powder instead)

1/4 cup cane sugar (or sugar of choice)

Dash of nutmeg and cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon organic extra virgin olive oil

1 tsp balsamic vinegar

1 tablespoon unsweetened almond milk

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking powder

1/4 cup unsweetened coconut (save a sprinkle for topping)

1/4 cup of dark chocolate chips

Optional Add-Ins: Add in 1 tsp finely ground coffee for a mocha flavour. Toss in walnuts for some crunch. Add in chocolate chips into the batter for chunky chocolate style brownies.

Check out that texture – it’s unbelievable that these are made with beans!

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Prepare a 8×8 pan (coat side with a little oil, or your favourite way to prevent the brownies from sticking).

Pull out your food processor and toss in the beans and eggs.

Pulse a few times until the beans are pureed (don’t want chunky skins in your brownies).

Next, add in the cacao powder, sugar, spices, almond milk, oil, vinegar, coconut, baking soda and powder.

Pulse about 13-15 times so the mixture is completely blended – don’t over blend. (Add in any optional add-ins here).

Pour the mixture into your prepared pan and sprinkle on coconut and chips.

Bake for about 25 minutes (or until a toothpick comes out clean).

Serve these up to your loved ones, or that special someone. Curious, as to what’s the most romantic food? It may be these brownies – all the steamy details on how nutmeg and chocolate may be good for your lover.
