Black Bean Brownies

With the holiday season upon us my brain & stomach automatically seek out baked goods!  That can spell trouble for a clean eater.  But I am doing my best to seek out clean baked goods, or clean up old classics, testing them out & then passing the successful recipes on to you!  Our first baked good adventure was Black Bean Brownies.  As you can see, they are kid tested & Fit Momma approved.  Try out this recipe, share it with friends & family & let me know if they can figure out the "secret ingredient."  Annie's guess for the secret ingredient was LOVE!  Awwww...isn't she sweet?!?

Black Bean Brownies
1 can black beans (drained and rinsed well)
1/2 cup 100% cocoa
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup raw honey
1 tsp. vanilla
3 eggs
1/2 cup spelt flour (you could use almond or quinoa flour as well)
1/4 tsp. sea salt

*Optional: unsweetened coconut flakes, sliced raw almonds, or 2 Tbls. dark chocolate chips to sprinkle on top.

Directions: Rinse the beans WELL! Put all ingredients into the blender & blend for approx. 2 mins.  Pour batter into a greased 8x8 pan.  If desired, top with coconut, almonds, or dark chocolate chips.  Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes.
