Protein-Packed Flourless Black Bean Brownies [Vegan, Gluten-Free]

LIKE OGP ON FACEBOOK :
Packed with protein, and with no refined sugar, these brownies are sure to be your new favorite recipe! They're fudgy and soft, with a perfectly chewy top layer. With results this good, nobody will ever guess that they're made with black beans and no added sugar — just fruit.

Flourless Black Bean Brownies [Vegan, Gluten-Free]

Ingredients

  • 1 cup black beans
  • 1 banana
  • 8 dates, soaked in 1/2 cup boiling water
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/3 cup cacao
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Preparation

  1. Add all the ingredients (including soaking water for dates) to a blender or food processor. Pulse until smooth and completely combined, scraping as necessary. Once combined, remove from the blender bowl and pour into a 9×9-inch baking dish sprayed, or lined with baking paper.
  2. Bake in the oven, preheated to 350°F for 25-30 minutes, or until the top is firm and cracked and the edges pull away from the sides of the pan. A stick inserted in the center should come out clean, but be careful not to overbake, as they will dry out.
  3. Once cooked, cool pan on a wire rack and then slice into brownies.

Notes

Store in an airtight container in the fridge.

I am a little saddened by the need some recipe makers/naturalish food companies still feel to promote things based on 'protein' as if we actually lack protein and must make extra conscious effort to include/bolster it in a diet that includes a wide range of healthy ingredients, eg leafy green vegetables, not to mention the potentially incredible benefit of protein fasting and autophagia

Not good for those on a low-carb diet, including diabetics, unfortunately, given the use of dates and beans.
