Black Bean Brownies With Avacado Superlicious Fudge Spread!

Have you tried a black bean brownie?  I have and they are so good!  My friend introduced me to these yummy brownies from Heidi Swanson's 101 Cookbooks .   Then recently I ran into the Greener Eating  blog with this different Brownie recipe that looks so good!  I tried it today!  Also through my searches I went here, and from there, I went to here, then I found Superlicious Fudge Spread to "frost" my brownies!  Also found a recipe for ABC pudding which I am defiantly going to make!  The brownies are very moist and have almost a fudgy look to them.  

  • 1 1/2 Cups soft cooked black beans
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1/3 Cup agave nectar
  • 1/4 Cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 Cup instant oats
  • 1 Tbsp walnut pieces


Preheat oven to 350F. Grease an 8x8" pan and set aside. 
Combine all ingredients, except oats, in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth, scrapping sides as needed. 
Stir in the oats and pour batter into the pan. 
Bake approx 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. 
Allow to cool before icing.  

Superlicious Fudge Spread
2 Avocado's
1/4 agave nectar
3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
Pour all ingredients into blender and blend until smooth.  
Tastes like chocolate pudding the kids raved!

OK, I cannot WAIT to try these! Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Heidi's brownies, but they do take a while (worth it for special occasions). These ones sound very simple. Thanks!

are these okay without the nuts? I'd love them, but am allergic to nuts.

the frosting recipe sounds yummy.

Angie said...

Sno white - I never made them with out nuts but I can't see why not! Maybe add some dried fruit or coconut!

FYI - My son pointed out that Agave Nectar is not as healthy as one might think. Guess I'm going to use Maple Syrup in my brownies. This website sheds light on the Agave Nectar issue.
