Healthy brownies


• 1 1/2 cups black beans, drained, rinsed (1 can, 15 ounces)

• 2 tablespoons cacao powder

• 1/2 cup quick oats

• 1 teaspoon Sunfiber

• 1/4 teaspoon salt

• 1/3 cup agave

• 1 teaspoon erythritol

• 1/4 cup red palm oil

• 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

• 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

• 1/2 cup avocado

Baking Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

2. Pulse all ingredients in a food processor until completely smooth. Really blend well. (For texture, a food processor works best. A blender is fine, if necessary.)

3. Pour into a greased 8 x 8 inch pan. Optional: Sprinkle 70% chocolate chips over the top.

4. Cook for 15 - 18 minutes. Let cool at least 10 minutes before trying to cut (yields about 9 - 12 squares). If they look a bit undercooked, you can place them in the fridge overnight and they will firm up.
