Maple Black Bean Brownies

Makes 9 brownies

Adapted from Chocolate Covered Katie

1 can of black beans, rinsed and drained

2 tbsp of cocoa powder

1/2 cup of old fashioned oats

1/4 tsp sea salt

1/4 cup maple syrup

1/4 cup of coconut oil

4 dates, pitted and chopped

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 cup of dark chocolate chips

To make these brownies start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees.

While the oven is preheating, combine all ingredients (except the chocolate chips) in a food processor until smooth.

Once smooth, fold in the dark chocolate chips and spread in a greased 8×8 baking dish.

Bake for ~18 minutes and let cool completely before cutting. Enjoy!
