Youll never guess that there are black beans in these moist, fudgy brownies, made with rich chocolate and maple syrup. The beans and eggs supply lots of calcium and protein, and theyre even gluten-free. Finally, guilt-free brownies!
Preheat oven to 350°. Oil or butter an 8-inch baking pan. Melt chocolate and butter or oil together in small saucepan. In mixing bowl, beat eggs and maple syrup together. Add melted chocolate mixture and beat well. Beat in beans and coffee substitute. Fold in walnuts (optional). Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake 40-45 minutes, or until set. If you press your finger in the middle, it should make a little dent. (Don’t overbake.) Cool. Cut into 2” squares.
