2 cups cooked black beans or canned no-salt-added or low-sodium black beans, drained
10 Medjool dates
2 tbsp raw almond butter
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup natural, non-alkalized cocoa powder
1 tbsp ground chia seed
Raspberries or other berries for topping
2 frozen bananas
Handful of blueberries
A few walnuts
Preheat oven to 200° F.
Blend the black beans, dates, almond butter and vanilla in a food processor or high powered blender until smooth.
Add the remaining ingredients and blend again. Pour into a very lightly oiled 8 x 8 inch baking pan and bake for 1 1/2 hours.
Cool completely before cutting into small squares. Top with raspberries or other berries.
Blend bananas, blueberries, and walnuts in a high speed blender.
Pair the banana treat with the warm brownies and enjoy!
