Badass Black Bean Brownies

This is a classic recipe for my cookie shack. And everyone asks me for the recipe. So here you go! Gluten free, sugar free (opt) and still somehow mindblowingly delicious!

Put all of these things in the blender or food processor:

  • 1, 16 oz. can of black beans. Rinsed well.
  •  3 eggs
  • 3 tbsp veg oil of your choice. I used melted coconut. You can use anything
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup honey or maple syrup (use 3/4 cup if you want them sweet)
  • Splash of vanilla
  • Pinch of salt

Blend it up! Pour it in a pan, 8×8 works, or sometimes I put them in a silicon muffin pan. If you like, add nuts, dried cherries, chocolate chips…

Bake at 350′ for about 30 minutes or until it looks done. Put a toothpick in and if it comes out clean it’s ready!

TIP: Let them cool completely before taking them out of the pan or you will end up with a gooey mess. (I know this from experience.)

Recipe of the Week – Nut Balls

A quick, easy and healthy treat!

NUT BALLSLast summer I served these at the Lasqueti market with fresh pressed juice. Balls and Juice. Or a BJ combo. Sales were good.

  • 1 cupish of nuts. Almonds, cashews or walnuts or a mix.
  • 1/2 cupish of dates. Add them into the food processor slowly so they don’t get all stuck
  • Fat squirt of maple syrup
  • A bunch of chocolate chips, use your own discretion (cuz everything is better with chocolate)
  • 1/2 cupish dried fruit. I like dried cherries. Craisens are good, dried apricots are good too.
  • Shot of vanilla
  • Pinch of salt
  • Add anything else you desire! Cocoa powder, spices like ginger or cinnamon or even a tiny bit of cardamon and clove to make them chia like. The options are endless! Make this recipe your own! Add fancy things like guarana powder or hemp seeds, oats, sesame seeds, the left-over bits in the bottom of your sink, or dried coconut flakes! Literally — Anything!
