My favourite beans are black beans so when I heard that you could use them to make brownies I decided I had to have a go. The original recipe called for chocolate chips, but I replaced them with walnuts. I might try half and half next time.
Cooked black beans - 400 g
Eggs - 3
Vegetable oil - 3 tbsp
Cocoa powder - 20 g
Salt - pinch
Vanilla extract - 1 tsp
Caster sugar - 150 g
Chopped walnuts - 85g
1) Preheat the oven to 175°C and grease a 20cm square baking tin.
2) Combine the black beans, eggs, oil, cocoa powder, salt, vanilla extract and sugar in a blender. Blend until smooth, stir in two thirds of the chopped walnuts and then pour into the tin. Sprinkle over the remaining walnuts.
3) Bake in the oven for about 30 minutes until a skewer comes out clean.
