I was working from home in the midst of four hours of back to back to back conference calls. Suddenly Mande shows up at the door to my office with this delicious treat. I posted a picture on Facebook and immediately the requests for the recipie came in.
The recipie is a modification of one that is in The Forks Over Knives summer 2018 magazine. The recipe with Mande’s changes are below:
1 can black beans rinsed and drained
3/4 cup applesauce
3oz unsweetned chocolate bar
1/2 cup coconut sugar
1/4 cup Cocoa Powder
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup flour (I used my standard Gluten Free one)
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1. Preheat oven to 350. line pan with parchment paper on bottom.
2. in a food processor combine beans, applesauce, and chocolate bar. Process until smooth. Add the coconut sugar, vanilla, and cocoa powder and continue to process until smooth
3. Add remaining dry ingredients to food processor and process until smooth. Scrape the sides occasionally if needed. Mine needed it.
4. Spread out batter in pan and bake for 20 min. I think mine went for 23 min.
