Black Bean Brownies

I've been seeing a lot of black bean brownie recipes popping up, and after trying garbanzo beans in the healthy chocolate pie I decided to come up with my own black bean brownie recipe. These brownies are so yummy and fudgie. They taste just like the real thing, but are so much healthier. These are gluten free, and made with organic apples, carrots, and black beans. I know you're probably thinking, "How is it possible that apples, carrots, and black beans mixed with a few other ingredients could taste like brownies?" Well believe me they do! These brownies are another great alternative to a birthday cake, or a great way to feed your chocolate craving :)

Here's what you need (Makes between 8 to 12 servings)
1 can organic black beans, drained
1 cup organic oats
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup peanut butter
4 oz organic carrot apple puree (you can use baby food puree)
2 tbsp flaxmeal + 6 tbsp water (mix together in a small bowl)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup chocolate chips melted with 1/4 cup skim milk
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350F.  Place a small pot with 1/4 cup milk over medium high heat. When milk gets hot remove from heat and add 1/2 cup chocolate chips, stir to melt. Put all ingredients except for the last 1/2 cup of chocolate chips into a food processor and blend until smooth. Add last 1/2 cup chocolate chips and stir. Spray an 8x8 brownie pan with cooking spray. Pour batter into pan and place in oven. Bake for 50 minutes. Let cool, cut into squares and enjoy!
