Preparation

  1. In a food processor, combine the black beans, cacao powder, sunflower butter, maple syrup, and sea salt. Pulse and process for a couple minutes, until the mixture is well combined and doughy. The dough will not be sticky, just gooey and fudgy.
  2. Roll the dough into 12 balls (approximately 2 tablespoons each) and place on a lined baking sheet. Pop in a toothpick/cake pop/straw. Place in the refrigerator to chill for 15-20 minutes.
  3. Melt the chocolate over the stove or in the microwave and, with a spoon, pour the melted chocolate over the brownie pops until covered.
  4. Top with your favorite toppings: mini chocolate chips, shredded coconut, sprinkles, etc. Place back in the refrigerator for 10 minutes to set. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator to keep fresh.
