Mineralized & Vegan Black Bean Brownies

Mineralized & Vegan Black Bean Brownies

With a twist towards simplicity, after reading many recipes for black bean brownies, we came up with this one. Makes about 12-18 brownies.

    • 1 cup dried bean soaked in 4 cups drinking water overnight or at least 6 hours (shortens cooking time AKA fuel consumption)
    • 3/4 cups sucanat, jaggerty, or coconut sugar
    • 3.5 oz bar of 70% dark chocolate
    • 1 TBS vanilla extract
    • 1 TBS Terramin -Multimineral Clay Supplement [silk] (optional)
  1. Heat oven to 350° and prepare 8×8 glass baking dish by greasing with either a little coconut or palm oil.
  2. Using the soak water, either pressure cook or steam beans for 15 min, or boil and cook till soft (approximately 30-45 min). Drain & reserve liquid.
  3. Puree beans in a food processor, grinder or high power blender, use reserved liquid if necessary, but as little as possible.
  4. Warm a small amount of the pureed beans in a small sauce pan and melt in the chocolate, on low heat to avoid burned chocolate. Incorporate back into the rest of the beans.
  5. Add the remaining ingredients and stir until well blended.
  6. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 45-60 minutes of until toothpick comes out clean. Cool completely & refrigerate for easier cutting.

optional add-ons:

  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup dried cherries or figs
  • 1/4 cup fresh flaked hull-less oats
