I know I said I would lay off the brownie recipes for awhile. Well, I lied.
I am choosing this recipe to be my inaugural submission over at Ricki’s Blog Diet, Dessert and Dogs for her Wellness Weekend. I always get such amazing ideas and find new blogs though her Wellness Weekend but have not submitted anything of my own. Mostly because….I always forget! I am ending that trend today.
Yield: approximately 12 brownies
1 15 oz. can black beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup hot water
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup coconut nectar
1/4 cup coconut oil (liquefied)
2 packets stevia
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 medium banana (no brown spots)
1 cup brown rice flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tablespoon instant coffee or coffee substitute
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoons coconut flour
1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. In a high-powered blender, blend together black beans, hot water, vanilla extract, coconut nectar, coconut oil, stevia and banana.
3. Add remaining ingredients and blend until just combined, stirring if necessary.Pour batter into a pre-greased 8×8″ pan. Bake in preheated oven for 35-40minutes, or until middle bounces back when pressed. Brownies will harden more as they cool. Allow to cool nearly completely before cutting.
