High Fiber Vegan Brownies (Thanks Jackie M.!!)

High Fiber Vegan Brownies

Ingredients

1 15.5-ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed (or 1 1/2 cups cooked dried beans)

2 cups water
1/2 cup prunes
1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup dark cocoa powder

1/2 cup oats
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 t salt
1 1/2 t baking powder
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Place the prunes in the bowl of a food processor and pulse a few times to start to break them down.

Add the black beans and process until smooth, adding a cup of the water in a steady stream to thin the mixture. The beans and prunes will be smooth with a few chunks.

Add the brown sugar and vanilla extract and pulse a few times to combine.

Add the oats, flour, salt and baking powder to the food processor and pulse until combined.

Add the remaining cup of water in a stream until a thick but smooth batter has formed. (You might not need all the water.)

Add the chocolate chips and pulse a few times to mix in.

Coat a 9x13-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray, then pour in the brownie batter.

Bake 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool before slicing into 12 brownies.

Note: For a party, slice into 24 brownies.

Number of Servings: 12
