Black Bean Brownies


  • 1 (15 oz.) can black beans (1 1/4 cups), drained and rinsed
  • 2 whole ripe bananas
  • 1/4 cup instant oats
  • 1/3 cup agave
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened pure cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. coffee granules - pour over 1 tbsp. boiling water
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

Heat your oven to 350f (175) and line a 8 x 8 pan

With the exception of the oats, put all the ingredients into a food processor and pulse until smooth.

Fold in the ground oats and cranberries and mix well. If you wanted the brownies less fudgey and more cakey then add 1 tsp baking powder.

Bake for 35 - 40 mins. Check them after 30mins. leave in pan for 5 mins and then gently lift onto a rack to cool.

Note: If using regular oats, just roll them through the food processor first in place of the instant oats.
