Black Bean Brownies
1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed
2 whole bananas
2 tbsp your choice of natural sweetener (I used maple syrup)
1/4 cup organic apple sauce
1/4 cup carob powder
1 tbsp cinnamon
1/2 cup quinoa flakes, divided
Preheat oven to 350F. Grease and 8x8 pan and set aside.
Combine all ingredients except quinoa in food processor and combine until smooth, make sure you scrape the sides every once and a while. Stir in 1/4 cup of the quinoa flakes. Depending on the size of your banana, or can of black beans you may only need 1/4 cup. If it looks too liquidy you may add the rest. Mine did. Bake approximately 30 min, or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean. Allow to cool before slicing. Enjoy!
