Vegan Black Bean Brownies
For 9 large brownies. I used a 9 x 8 inches baking tray.
- 2 15 oz cans black beans (~3 cups)
- 4 tablespoons ground flax seeds
- 8 tablespoons water
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 cup cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup agave
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
- 2 tablespoons almond milk
- 1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips
- 1/4 cup walnuts, chopped
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees (180 °C).
Thoroughly rinse and drain the black beans. Grind the flax seeds in a food processor or use store-bought ground flax seeds. Whisk them together with 8 tablespoons of water and set aside to thicken for about 2 minutes.. Then make the batter: Combine all ingredients except the chocolate chips and the walnuts in a food processor and process until smooth (also add the soaked flax seeds).
Lightly grease a baking tray and pour in the batter. Add the chocolate chips and spread evenly. Sprinkle with the chopped walnuts.
Bake for about 40 minutes. Allow the brownies to cool down before you cut them into pieces.
