You’ll fool everyone! They’ll never guess these have black beans or banana in them! Recipe adapted from the Happy Herbivore Blog.

Makes 12 large brownies

1 15oz can of black beans, rinced well (or 1 3/4 cups)
1 Tbsp instant coffee
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 bananas (just ripe, a little green even)
1/3 cup agave nectar (or honey)
3 Tbsp stevia (or splenda)
1 Tbsp vanilla
1/4 cup instant oats

Preheat oven to 350F. Spray a square pan with cooking spray. Throw everything together in blender (except oats). Blend, scrape, then blend again.  Stir in the oats and pour batter in the pan. Bake about 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool before slicing.


TASTES THE BEST when cooled in the fridge, even better the next day. Keep stored in fridge in air tight container.
