Ingredients

  • 15

    prunes

  • 1

    banana, cut into pieces

  • 2

    organic, pastured eggs

  • 1

    cup canned black beans, rinsed and drained (Note: Look for BPA-free canned beans)

  • 1

    teaspoon pure vanilla extract

  • ¼

    cup coconut palm sugar

  • ½

    cup unrefined red palm oil (or organic extra virgin coconut oil)

  • ½

    cup raw cacao powder (such as Navitas Naturals brand)

  • ½

    cup plus 2 tablespoons brown rice flour

  • cup vegan dark chocolate chips (such as Enjoy Life brand)

Directions

Preheat oven to 325°F. Grease the bottom and sides of an 8 x 8-inch glass baking dish with oil. Place a small sauce pan on the stovetop, add the prunes and cover with water. Bring the water to a boil and cook prunes for 3 minutes. Turn the heat off and let prunes sit in the water for 5 minutes. Drain water and set prunes aside. To a high-speed blender (such as a Vitamix), add the softened prunes, banana, eggs, beans, pure vanilla extract, coconut palm sugar and oil; process on high for 1 full minute, or until ingredients are well blended. Add in the cacao powder and brown rice flour; process until smooth and creamy. Add the chocolate chips and process for about 30 seconds, until they somewhat break apart. Transfer batter to prepared pan. Bake for 22-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes clean. Remove brownies from oven and set aside to cool before cutting. Note: Brownies taste best when slightly warm.
