Vegan Black Bean Brownies


  • 1 can black beans, drained & rinsed

  2. To a blender, combine all of the filling ingredients and blend until smooth.
  3. Pour into the prepared baking pan and top with chocolate chips.
  4. Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes or until top is completely dry and sides start to pull away from the pan.
  5. Allow to cool at room temperature before slicing (they will be very soft, so do not rush this step and make sure they are completely cool).
