I am on a mission to get more protein in my children’s (especially my daughter’s) diet. They won’t eat very many green things and are super picky. I think most kids with food allergies tend to be picky, and mine are no different.
I have been trying to master this black bean brownie recipe for weeks but up until today they tasted like…. well… beans!!
I adjusted a few things this morning and it was a hit!! They are SO GOOD!!!
Here is my super easy recipe!!
1 (15.5 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
3 tablespoons coconut oil or vegetable oil
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder ( I use Vermont Nut Free cocoa powder)
3/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 pinch salt
1/2 cup chocolate chips (I also broke up a nut free chocolate bar for the topping and added nut free butterscotch chips)
Throw all of the ingredients in a food processor or blender to puree, except the toppings. I added a touch of water to the blender to help it along.
Grease a pan (I used a glass pie plate) and pour in. Place your toppings on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes. Let cool.
Dig in and enjoy!!!
