What's in it


1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
3 eggs
3 tbsp. vegetable oil
1/4 cup cocoa powder
2/3 cup sugar or
1/4 cup sugar + 1 tsp. Stevia powder
1/4 cup flour
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/3 cup ripe mashed banana
1/4 cup chocolate chips
1 tbsp. decorative sprinkles
Pinch of salt

How to cook it


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 8” x 8” baking pan.
  • Combine all ingredients except for chocolate chips and sprinkles in a food processor until smooth. Pour 2/3 of batter into pan, sprinkle on chocolate chips, and cover chips with remaining 1/3 of batter. Bake for 18 minutes, remove from oven, and add decorative sprinkles on top. Bake for an additional 10 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted. Cool completely, best when allowed to sit a few hours before serving. Cut into shapes using a cookie cutter, optional. Store refrigerated.
  • Note: To make this recipe even lighter, replace eggs with 3/4 cup egg substitute. Increase baking time 2-4 minutes.
