You-Gotta-Be-Kidding-Me Black Bean Brownies

This recipe is going to completely psych out your family! Be Brave, give it a try–you will love it!  I especially like adding either Peppermint EO or Wild Orange…no kidding…

Ingredients:

1 (15 ounce) can black beans, drained, and rinsed

2 large eggs

1/4 cup cocoa powder

2/3 cup honey

1/3 cup coconut oil (or Canola Oil, or whatever baking oil you have on hand)

½ teaspoon baking powder

Pinch of salt

4 drops Peppermint essential oil

¾ cup chocolate chips, divided

Preheat oven to 350F

Put first all ingredients except chocolate chips in to a blender or food processor and blend away.  (Ya, this is a very easy recipe!)

Pour batter in a bowl and stir in 1/2 cup chocolate chips.

Pour in a greased 8X8 pan and sprinkle rest of chocolate chips on top (yes, a good job for little hands that might be helping.)

Bake for 30-35min until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

Let cool and enjoy!  (You need to keep any leftovers in the refrigerator…but, let’s be honest, there won’t be any leftovers…)

*If you have a family like mine that can’t survive off of just an 8X8 pan, you can double the recipe and use a 9X13.
