Ⓥ Vegan Kitchen: Vegan Black Bean Brownies!!! Ⓥ

I was intrigued when I first heard about these and decided that I simply must try them! 
They are gluten-free (as long as you use gluten-free oats), sugar-free, Vegan (of course), low-fat, and packed full of protein, and simply delicious! I don't think you could find a healthier brownie around! See? Dessert Can be good for you ;)   

They taste delicious, and not at all like black beans! They are pretty dense because they have no flour, almost fudge-like, super moist and packed full of flavor. A very fun alternative to the unhealthy kinds ;). So without further ado...

Black Bean Brownies:

1 can Black Beans (drained and rinsed)
2 whole Bananas
1/3 cup Agave Nectar (more if you want them a bit sweeter)
1/4 cup Cocoa Powder
1-2 teaspoons Cinnamon
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1/2 cup instant Oats

Preheat oven to 350 F. Lightly grease an 8x8" pan and set aside. 
Combine all the ingredients, expect the oats, in a food processor and blend until smooth. Stir in the oats. Pour batter into the greased pan. 
Bake for 30-40 minutes--until you can stick a toothpick in the centre and it comes out clean. Allow to cool for approximately one hour before slicing. 

Voila! Yummy healthy brownies!  Enjoy!

For extra entertainment, watch my video blog making these delicious treats! ;)
