Easy Peppermint Black Bean Brownies

No Sugar, No Gluten, No Dairy. So how good can these brownies really be? Well let me just say that they are so good that my son (who hates black beans) has no idea that he is eating a brownie without any sugar, gluten or dairy and let alone has black beans. Then adding doTERRA peppermint essential oil to the batter makes it oh so good. You won't be able to eat more than one. But that's okay it's a healthy brownie so go on in for seconds! Enjoy!

1 1/2 cups black beans (1 15-oz can, drained and rinsed very well) 

2 tbsp cocoa powder


1/4 tsp salt

2/3 cup pure maple syrup 

1/4 cup MELTED coconut oil

2 tsp pure vanilla extract

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 cup chocolate chips (or Vegan dark choc chips is what I used)

3 drops of doTERRA peppermint essential oil

Instructions: Preheat oven to 350 F. Combine all ingredients except chips in a good food processor, and blend until completely smooth. Really blend well. (A blender can work if you absolutely must, but the texture—and even the taste—will be much better in a food processor.) Stir in the chips, then pour into a greased 8×8 pan. Optional: sprinkle extra chocolate chips over the top. Cook the black bean brownies 15-18 minutes, then let cool at least 10 minutes before trying to cut. If they still look a bit undercooked, you can place them in the fridge overnight and they will magically firm up! Makes 9-12 brownies.
