Vegan, Gluten Free, Black Bean Brownies with Peppermint Essential Oil•
Posted on February 22 2021
Right, who loves a brownie!? Well, most people that are normal wheat eaters appreciate a brownie. Those of us coeliacs or gluten intollerant are mostly sick of brownies, they are a normal, easy go to dessert for many cafes and restaurants to offer and, as you know, they can differ greatly from venue to venue!
In my quest to change up the norm, I have made this vegan, gluten free, black bean brownie, it is flourless, mild in flavour and full of protein - which as a gluten free vegan, is very important. Sugar is something that our bodies don't need, as you know, many of my recipes are free from refined sugars. So a win, win all round.
What I will say is don't dig in expecting a generic brownie, go in with new expectations and an open mind and you will find you are pleasently surprised!
Love and squishy brownies.
Vegan, Gluten Free, Black Bean Brownies with Peppermint Essential Oil
1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed
2 flax eggs
¼ cup cocoa powder
⅔ cup honey or maple syrup
⅓ cup coconut oil
½ teaspoon baking powder
Pinch of salt
2–4 drops Peppermint oil
¾ cup dark chocolate chips, divided or dark, sugar free chocolate chopped into chunks
Preheat oven to 160° C and line/grease an 8x8 inch cake tin
Make your two flaxseed eggs (2 heaped tablespoons of flaxseed, 6 tablespoons of boiling water into a small pot, stir to combine) put them in the freezer for a couple of minutes to cool while you prep your other ingredients
Place all ingredients, except for chocolate chips/chunks, adding the flaxseed last so they have time to cool in blender or food processor and blend until smooth
Take the blending tool out and stir in ½ cup chocolate chips
Pour into your prepared tin and top with ¼ cup chocolate chips
Bake 30–35 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean
TIP: When cooking with essential oils, start small. Add one drop and then more if necessary to keep the oil from overpowering the recipe.
