Black Bean Brownies

There are some recipes that you just have to try. Black Bean Brownies - yes, this is totally a recipe that I need to actually bake to understand (1) why it works and (2) what the hype is about. Holy cow! I can't stop eating them!

1 can black beans, drained
3 eggs
3 Tbsp veg oil
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 pinch of salt
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup cocoa powder, unsweetened
3/4 cup sugar (you can use splenda)
1 heaping Tbsp instant coffee (or 3 packets of the instant travel size)
1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
1/4 cup walnut pieces

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray an 8x8 baking pan with non-stick cooking spray. If you are using a glass pan like me, decrease the oven temp by 25 degrees.

Using a blender, mix the top 9 ingredients together until smooth. Fold in the chocolate and nuts then pour into the prepared pan.

Bake for 40-45 minutes until they look set in the center. Cool completely before serving. Enjoy!
