Black bean brownies? Am I to believe my eyes? Yes & yes! These babies are amazing & nobody would ever guess that they are flourless & made of canned beans. Rich & delicious & packed with protein – even the fussiest kids will chow these babies down.

Vegan Black Bean Brownies with Peanut Butter Swirl
1 (15 oz) can black beans – drained & rinsed
2 vegan eggs (use your favorite egg replacer)
3 TBS coconut oil
1/2 cup cocoa powder
2 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup agave nectar
1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips plus extra for topping
1/8 – 1/4 cup peanut butter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a food processor, blend all the ingredients except the chocolate chips & peanut butter.
Mix in 1/2 cup of chocolate chips.
Grease an 8×8 baking pan. Spread the mix in there. Drop some peanut butter on top and – with a skewer or the tip of a knife – swirl the peanut butter. Top with some extra chips & then bake for 20-30 minutes or until the top is dry & the edges are separated from the pan. Allow to cool for about 30 minutes before cutting them. Refrigerating them will facilitate cutting them up.
Serve & wow the villagers!
