DECADENT BLACK BEAN AND QUINOA BROWNIE FUDGE 

(Yes the ingredients might sound odd for brownie fudge, but the finished dessert is surprisingly delicious!)

  • 1 14-ounce can black beans, rinsed, drained
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup virgin coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup turbinado sugar
  • 1 Tabs. ground flaxseed mixed with 2 Tabs. water
  • 1/4 cup uncooked quinoa  (ground into flour with a coffee grinder or blender)
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 3 Tab. raw cacao powder
  • 1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips

1. Place black beans, maple syrup, coconut oil and vanilla in a blender.  Blend until smooth and pour into a large mixing bowl.  Stir in the rest of the ingredients.

2. Pour into an oiled 8″ x 8″ baking dish.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until top is firm.

IMPORTANT:  Refrigerate overnight to chill thoroughly before cutting into squares and serving.
