Black Bean Granola Butter Brownies

I love sweat treats but making healthy alternative makes it even better! However, if you see a brownie and crave it then eat it: don’t deprive yourself! Brownies are delicious and I made a recipe using black beans! I know it may sound crazy but it actually turned out amazing. Also try not to eat all the batter before it goes into the oven because it tastes amazing. The nut butter I used was granola butter! It is a newer kind but I definitely suggest trying it out because it tastes delicious!

Ingredients:                                             -1 can black beans                                 -1/4 cup cacao powder                         -1/4 cup granola butter + 1-2 tbsp for topping                                                 -1 tsp vanilla extract                             -1/2 tsp baking powder                         -1/2 tsp baking soda                               -2 tbsp pure maple syrup                     -2 tbsp almond milk                               -dash of salt                                             -Optional add ins: cacao nibs or chocolate chips of choice

Directions:                                               1. Preheat oven to 350 F.                       2. Add all the ingredients to a food processor, except for the add ins.       3.
