Recipe: Black Bean Brownies

Black Bean Brownies

  • 1 15 ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1-1/2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts.

Grease an 8×8 inch baking pan. Preheat the oven to 350 F. 

Put first seven ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. Mix in chopped nuts by hand, pur into greased baking pan, and bake 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

These brownies are very moist and don’t taste like beans.

Slightly modified from “Peg’s Black Bean Brownies” from the 2016 Old Farmer’s Almanac.
