Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup cooked black beans (dried beans preferred over canned), thoroughly rinsed and drained, no salt added
  • 1/4 cup safflower oil
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 whole organic eggs (free range)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2/3 cup coconut palm sugar or sucanat (this is a clean eating sweetener and wonderful in baked recipes)
  • 2 small single serving packets of truvia or stevia
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips, divided (try Enjoy Life, gluten free, vegan friendly)
  • 1/3 cup oat flour (I used Bob's Mill gluten free oat flour)
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 cup clean eating powdered sugar (recipe below) for dusting, optional

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly oil a 9x9 square baking pan with canola or olive oil.

In a blender, puree the cooked and rinsed black beans with the safflower and olive oil. Pour into the bowl of an electric mixer. Add eggs, cocoa, sucanat, truvia or stevia and vanilla. Melt half the chocolate chips and add to mixer. Blend on medium until smooth. In a small bowl, whisk together oat flour, baking powder and salt. Add to the mixer until just incorporated. Stir in remaining chocolate chips. Pour into prepared pan and bake for about 20 minutes, until surface looks somewhat matte around the edges and shiny in the middle. Let cool at least 15 minutes before cutting. Deceptively scrumptious!

To make clean eating powdered sugar, simply add Blonde Coconut Palm Sugar or sucanat, to a high powdered blender or coffee grinder. Grind until a powdered sugar consistency.

    Don't have time to do homemade black beans. No canned because of the BPA in the cans? Could we sub if we absolutely had too? Also, egg replacers, would these work with chia eggs or the powdered egg replacer?

      Tracy, Sure, I use black beans in the can when in a a hurry. The cans that are most suspect are those with tomato products since they apparently absorb the BPA because of their acidity.

      buy your black beans in a can at Trader Joe's…all canned goods are BPA safe there! If you are lucky enough to have a Trader Joe's near you…

      Marlanne, Black beans are an excellent source of protein and are often used in clean eating desserts.
