BLACK BEAN BROWNIES W/ CHOCOLATE FROSTING

BY Ceres Organics

Ready in 45 MINUTES | Serves 8


Ingredients

BROWNIE

2 tablespoons Organic Ground Flaxseed

8 tablespoons filtered water

1½ cups Organic Black Beans (this is slightly less than 2 cans), rinsed & drained

⅓ cup Organic Maple Syrup

pinch of sea salt

¾ cup Cacao Powder

1 teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary plus extra to garnish

CHOCOLATE FROSTING

25g Dark Chocolate 85% Cacao (melted)

fresh rosemary and salt flakes to garnish

Method

Preheat your oven to 175°C and line a 9×5-inch loaf tin with greaseproof paper.

First make your flaxseed egg by combining the ground flaxseed and water in a small bowl. Set aside to thicken while you start preparing the rest of the brownie ingredients.

In a food processor or blender, combine the remaining brownie ingredients and process until smooth. Add the flaxseed egg last.

Transfer the brownie mixture to your prepared tin. Bake for 25-30 minutes. The brownie will still be a bit gooey which is okay, you just don’t want it to burn!

Once done, remove the brownie from the tin and transfer to a wire rack to cool.

Drizzle over with the melted chocolate and sprinkle over sea salt flakes and rosemary. Any brownies leftover should be kept in the fridge.
