Author Notes: Decadent. Rich. Sweet. Bitter. Textured. Fudgey. Could one ask for anything more from brownies? —Hungry Haley
Prep time: 8 min
Cook time: 22 min
15-oz can black beans, drained and rinsed
tablespoons coconut oil, plus more for greasing
cup melted and cooled dark chocolate
cup oat flour
cup cane sugar
teaspoon baking soda
vegan caramel candies
handful chopped dark chocolate, for topping
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and lightly coat an 8x8 baking pan with oil (or butter, if not vegan).
- In a high-powered blender or food processor, toss the black beans, coconut oil, and dark chocolate. Blend until smooth, then add the flour, sugar, flax egg, and baking soda. Pulse until just combined.
- Transfer the batter to the 8x8 baking pan and bake for 20-22 minutes. Sprinkle the caramel pieces and dark chocolate chunks over the top bake for an additional 1-2 minutes. If a toothpick comes out clean, remove the brownies from the oven and cool before serving. Sprinkle with sea salt.
