Author:
Ingredients
  • ⅔ cup butter or coconut oil at room temp
  • 6 oz dark chocolate, 70% ( I did 3 oz dark and 3 oz semi sweet chocolate)
  • ¾ cup black beans, cooked
  • ¾ cup garbanzo beans, cooked
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder (They used cacao powder)
  • 3 tbsp shredded coconut
  • 1 cup raw walnuts, chopped
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • 3 eggs, organic cage free
  • ¾ cup agave syrup or maple syrup (I did half brown sugar and half honey)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375F. Line an 11" square baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. Melt butter on low heat in a pan and add chocolate. Keep stirring until it is completely melted. Now place beans, cocoa powder, coconut and walnuts in a blender or processor. Blend for about half a minute, then add the melted chocolate mix and blend for another minute.
  3. In another bowl, whisk eggs with hands or mixer for 2-3 minutes. Add the agave syrup or whatever other sweetener using and whisk for another minute.
  4. Pour it over the bean chocolate mixture and stir everything to properly mix.
  5. Pour into a baking pan and bake for 30-40 minutes.
  6. Keep them little loose from inside and then let them cool out of the oven. This is the hardest part but trust me letting them cool properly makes all the difference.
  7. Slice them and store in an airtight container.
