Ingredients
  • 1 15 ounce can black beans
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3 Tbsp canola oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup chocolate, peanut butter or butterscotch chips, or chopped nuts optional
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a 9-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.

  2. In a colander, drain and rinse beans.

  3. In a large bowl, whisk eggs, oil and vanilla with a fork. Add beans and mash with fork until beans are barely visible (this can take 5 or more minutes of mashing). Stir sugar and cocoa, and blend with a rubber spatula until mixed. Stir in chips or nuts if using.

  4. Pour the batter into the baking pan. Bake until a knife inserted in the center of the brownies comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes. Let cool completely before cutting into 16 squares.
