Black Bean Brownies


Dense, and fudgy these brownies are a great alternative to traditional brownies! They taste like chocolate fudge, not beans!


Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Grease a 20 cm squared pan and set aside.

Combine all ingredients, except oats, in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth, scrapping sides as needed. If the batter is too soft or dudgy, add another 1/4 C of flour.

Stir in the oats and pour batter into the pan.

Bake approx 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Allow to cool completely before slicing.
