Gluten-Free Black Bean Brownies
1 can black beans - drained and rinsed very well
2 TBSP cocoa powder
1/2 cup quick oats
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup combined pure maple syrup and honey
1/4 cup coconut oil - melted
2 tsp pure vanilla
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 TBSP ground chia seeds
1/2 cup chocolate chips (you can use carob or omit but recipe has only been tried with semi-sweet chips and brownies may not come out right)
Preheat oven to 350 and grease a 8x8 inch baking dish.
Combine all ingredients except chocolate chips in a food processor and blend until completely smooth. (You can use a blender but the texture will be much better in a food processor). Stir in the chocolate chips and pour into prepared pan.
Cook 20-30 minutes. Let cool 15 minutes before cutting.
