    1 flax/chia egg (or 1 egg if you are not Vegan.)
    2 cups cooked Black beans
    One small avocado (or 1/2-3/4 Cup coconut oil)
    1 tablespoon vanilla extract

    1/4 teaspoon baking soda
    1/4 teaspoon baking powder
    Optional: 1/2 cup dairy free (vegan) chocolate chips

    Preheat oven to 350°.
    Grease an 8 x 8″ baking stone or mini muffin pan (spray coconut or avocado oil)
    Place flax egg, black beans, avocado or oil, vanilla and sugar and mix in the food processor until smooth.
    Add the Cacao, coconut oil, baking soda, baking powder and mix again until smooth.
    Batter needs to be stick to be fudgy if you want it thinner add a tablespoon or so of coconut milk.
    Fold in the chocolate chips spread in the pan and bake for about 20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
    Cool completely.

    The food processor is best, blends and hides the consistency of the beans.
    Brownies are best cold.
    Can be stored in the fridge or frozen.
    Also tastes good raw, no need to bake if you are in a hurry.
