- 1 15-ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 2 large eggs
- 1/4 cup coconut oil OR vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/3 cup chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
In the bowl of a food processor combine black beans, sugar, cocoa powder, eggs, coconut oil, vanilla, baking powder, and salt. Blend for 2 to 3 minutes or until the batter is very smooth. Don’t forget to scrape down the sides.
Fold in the chocolate chips and walnuts.
Scoop the batter into 6 well-greased 125mL mason jars or a square baking dish. Bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean.
Allow to cool slightly before serving or store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
***IMPORTANT Most mason jar manufacturers do not recommend baking in mason jars as there is a risk of the jars cracking in the oven. I have never personally had an issue with this but it is important to understand the risks involved.
