Organic Gluten Free Black Bean Brownies
15.5 oz Can Organic Refried Black Beans
3 Range Free Eggs
3 T. Organic Olive Oil, Coconut Oil or Palm Oil
½. C. Cacao Powder
Pinch of Salt
1 t. Organic Vanilla
¾ C. Organic Sugar (I like Sucanat)
½ C. Chocolate Chips – Soy Free (Enjoy Life Brand) Optional
Raw Nuts – Optional
Organic Powdered Sugar - Optional

Mix ingredients in a bowl and pour into an 8”x8” greased pan. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes until the top is dry and brownies start to pull from the edges. A toothpick inserted should come out almost clean. Top with powdered sugar, chocolate chips and nuts.

These brownies have a more cake-like texture than the normal gooey, thick brownies. If eaten warm they kind of fall apart. Great on ice cream…They are great because they use no flour at all.
I found a chocolate chip that is completely soy free, and gluten free, from a company called Enjoy Life®. Soy should only be consumed in a fermented state: soy sauce, miso, tempe. If not, it can create estrogen dominance in your body. But that’s a whole different story. Happy Baking!
