Coffee Black Bean Brownies 3

Coffee & Black Bean Brownies (Gluten-Free)

For as much Mexican food as I cook, I always end up with leftover beans. I have even tried just making my own to reduce leftovers but that didn't help. So I love this recipe as a fun new take on brownies. These coffee and black bean brownies not only help use up leftovers, but they are gluten free and delicious too! Win-win-win.

Instructions

1

In a large mixing bowl, thoroughly mash 1 1/2 cups of black beans. If you have a food processor, that's even better. You want the end result to be smooth.

4

Melt the 1/2 cup of butter over a medium-low heat.

5

Once the butter is melted, turn off the heat but leaving the pot on the burner, and add in the chopped chocolate. Stir until the chocolate has completely melted and combined with the butter.

6

Slowly add the melted chocolate to the bean mixture, stirring vigorously. You don't want the heat from the butter-chocolate mixture to cook the egg yolks. So it is key to add a little at a time for this reason.

7

Beat the egg whites in a separate bowl until stiff. Fold them into the brownie batter until completely combined.

9
