Fudgey Black Bean and Avocado Brownies

This was the first time I tried making black bean brownies, and I was NOT disappointed! This is one of the most fudgey and moist brownie recipes I've ever made. The best part is that they are totally healthy and filled with fibre and healthy fats! 


1 can (approximately 2 cups) black beans
1 egg
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1 very ripe avocado
1 Tbsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup brown sugar (or sweetner of your choice)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt 
1/2 cup dark mini chocolate chips


1. Preheat oven to 350*. Spray a 9x9" baking tray with cooking spray. 
2. In a Magic Bullet (or blender) blend black beans and avocado until very smooth. 
3. In a large bowl mix together black bean and avocado mixture, egg, cocoa powder, vanilla, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt until well blended. 
4. Stir in chocolate chips. Pour mixture into baking tray and place in oven. Bake for 30-40 minutes until fully cooked through.
