10’o’clock Brownies

What happens when its 10’o’clock on a school night and your mom wants to make something for her staff development?
Usually, black bean brownies.
What happens when you find out you are out of bananas and dates, but you do have some leftover breakfast?
These brownies.
Rich, dense, chocolaty brownies with just the right amount of sweetness and notes of fruity tartness.
They were named 10’0’clock Brownies because of the late time they were created. But I’ll look the other way if you have them at 10 am too. (hey! they are made with leftover breakfast so essentially….:) )
10’0’Clock Brownies
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 C. leftover vegan overnight oats (with chia seeds)
  • 2 T. almond butter
  • 1/4 C. coconut flour
  • 1/3 C. cocoa powder
  • 3 T. carob powder
  • 3 T. organic sugar
  • 3 T. organic brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp instant espresso powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • chocolate chips

Lightly spray an 8×8 pan, and pre-heat oven to 350. In a food processor, put all ingredients (except for choc. chips) in and blend well. Once smooth, pulse in some chocolate chips (your preference), then spread batter into pan. Sprinkle with a few more chocolate chips, then bake for 20-30 minutes.

These are delicious cold, but I prefer them a little warmed up. They are amazing either way though!

You no longer have an excuse not to make brownies just because its 10 pm and you are out of your usual ingredients. Its called creativity.

Muah-ha-ha!!!
