Brownies are the perfect place to hide black beans. Lately I have been making these quite a lot because they are such an easy snack that my son and I both like. I like to have them as a pre-workout snack in the late afternoon.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups black beans (soaked and cooked or from a can)
  • 2 cups egg whites
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder

Mason Jar/Blender Method*:

  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees
  2. Place black beans and 1.5 cups of egg whites in a large mason jar.  Blend until smooth and then pour the mixture into a mixing bowl.
  3. Place bananas, honey, remaining egg whites and 2 eggs in the large mason jar.  Blend until smooth and then pour the mixture into the mixing bowl. Stir all of the liquid together.
  4. In a medium bowl, combine oats, flour, baking powder, cocoa until mixed.
  5. Add the dry ingredients to the mixture. Stir until everything is evenly mixed.
  6. Pour into either a)silicon muffin pans or b) a greased baking dish
  7. Bake for 20-35min depending on what you put it in. Small muffin cups will take about 20 min while large muffin cups or large pan will take about 35min.  Test center with a butter knife or a toothpick – when it comes out clean (no goopy batter) then it is done.
  8. Cool 10 min before removing from pan. Enjoy!

*You can also use a food processor or a potato masher to mush up the beans and bananas together and then add the remaining wet ingredients together.
