Fudgy Plant Powered Brownies


I have a few recipes for Brownies in my pocket these days and I will share them too but this is the Fudgiest most Gooey version by far.. Just like my Magic Bean Cake this one has beans that give it a rich texture but these are accompanied by Avocado to make the texture more moist.

It is super easy to make, all in one bowl (or food processor), under 150 calories per piece and has the tick of approval from my two..


INGREDIENTS :

  • 1 Flax Egg (1tbsp of flaxseed mixed with 2.5 tbsp of water)
  • 15oz / 425g of Black Beans
  • Half an Avocado
  • 4 Dates
  • 1 tbsp of Vanilla Extract
  • 2/3 cup of Cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup of Coconut Sugar (you can use Brown Sugar, Honey or Maple Syrup if you prefer)
  • 1 tsp of Coconut Oil
  • 1/4 tsp of Baking Soda
  • 1/4 tsp of Baking Powder
  • 1/4 cup of Vegan Chocolate Chips
  • 3 or 4 tbsp of Vegan Chocolate Chips to sprinkle on top

DIRECTIONS :
  • Preheat oven to 350 Degrees Fahrenheit / 175 Celsius and Grease an 8x8 inch Pan
  • Make your Flax Egg then add to Beans, Avocado, Dates, Vanilla & Sugar in a Food Processor, Blend until smooth.
  • Add to same mixture the Cocoa, Baking Soda, Baking Powder and blend again.
  • Stir in the 1/4 cup of Chocolate Chips and then spread that into your greased pan.
  • Sprinkle your other Chocolate Chips across the top and put it in the oven
  • Bake for 23 minutes and then check that a knife comes out nearly clean.. not fully clean as that would be too dry but as long as the top is dry you are good to go.
  • Once cooled on a rack for 10 minutes they will cut easily into 12 pieces and melt in the mouth.
These Brownies can be stored in the Freezer if you wish and by all means double the recipe but be sure to do in 2 pans or they won't have the same consistency as these.

Gluten Free, Dairy Free and full of Fibre.. Happy Days..
