These decadent chocolate brownies are so luscious it's hard to believe they're healthy...ish 😉 They tick all the boxes, gooey with crunch and super satisfying without all the nasties!
4 cups of cooked black beans
250g grass fed butter, melted
4 free range eggs
100g raw cacao
200ml maple syrup
2 tbsp vanilla extract
1 shot espresso coffee (approx. 30ml)
150g walnuts, chopped
~ Pre heat oven to 160℃ and line a 20 x 24cm baking dish with unbleached baking paper.
~ Place the beans, eggs, cacao, maple syrup and vanilla extract and coffee into food processor or high speed blender and blitz until smooth.
~ Gradually pour in the melted butter whilst processing on low speed to avoid cooking the eggs.
~ Stir through chopped walnuts.
~ Pour into baking dish and bake for 40-45 mins or until cooked through.
~ Top with chocolate ganache for an optional bit of luxury 😉
To make Ganache |
~ Melt 1/4 cup of coconut oil and 1/4 cup of rice malt syrup together. Add 2-3 tbsp raw cacao and mix thoroughly, continue to mix until thickens up as it cools, then pour over brownie.
* You could also sprinkle with a pinch of sea salt flakes to give a salted chocolate spin.
