This is my first attempt at gluten free brownies made with beans. I won’t lie, they tasted a bit healthy but with vanilla ice cream they are just perfect.
Start with 15 oz. of cooked black beans from a can or cooked yourself.
Drain and rinse them.
In a blender add beans,
eggs, coconut oil, vanilla,
a handful of dates,
millet flour, salt and baking powder. Blend until smooth. Add a little water if it get too thick to blend.
spoon into greased muffin tins and bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes.
Optional: top with chopped nuts.
serve warm or make ahead and serve with vanilla ice cream.
