Black Bean Walnut Brownies

Black Bean brownies have been all the rage. These go one step farther, forgoing the extra flour and using walnuts to add extra protein and flavor. A well-rounded treat or a special afternoon snack with a glass of almond milk (or even better pair it with Strawberry Almond Milk or Greener than Grass Smoothie).

Gluten free and dairy free! And all that goodness!

If you are looking for chocolate chips that are dairy and gluten free, look no further! You can find Enjoy Life brand on Amazon. Check them out here.

My little peanut can't get enough chocolate - she takes after her mother. Here she is above showing off her brownie! Yum yum!

Black Bean Walnut Brownies

1 1/2 cup black beans (or 1 can, drained and rinsed)
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup coconut oil
3 eggs
1/2 cup walnuts + 1/2 cup to top, chopped
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup chocolate chips + 1/4 cup to top
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp sea salt

1. Blend all ingredients in a food processor (I love my Cuisinart) until smooth (reserving the walnuts and chocolate chips to top).
2. Pour into a lightly greased 9x13" pan, top with reserved walnuts and chocolate chips and bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes.
