Flourless Guilt-free Fudge Brownies

Brownies Optm

Valentines Day! Everyone is talking about chocolate!!! How about treating yourself and your sweetheart with some flourless guilt-free fudge brownies loaded with super foods?

I got the inspiration from a recipe on onegreenplanet.org so it’s not my own original recipe. This is a good website for vegan recipes, check it out.

The recipe is quick and easy, just mix all ingredients and either pour into an 8×8 pan or a brownie pan like this.

Flourless Guilt-free Fudge Brownies

SERVES: 4-6     PREP TIME: 10 minutes     BAKE TIME: 18-20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 15-oz can or 1-½ cups cooked adzuki beans, drained
  • 2 Tbsp raw cacao powder (you can add a little more if you like)
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup (+ some extra to grease the pan) coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 cup (+ some extra for topping) dark chocolate chips
  • 1 Tbsp goji berries, soaked in filtered water for 10 minutes and drained

 

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Soak goji berries in filtered water and set aside.
  3. Grease an 8×8-inch pan with coconut oil.
  4. Put rolled oats in a food processor and pulse to make into a fine powder.
  5. Add rest of the ingredients except chocolate chips and goji berries and blend until smooth. If the mixture is too thick add water 1 Tbsp at a time and blend to get a smooth texture. You won’t need too much water, so be careful not to add too much.
  6. Stir in chocolate chips in the mixture.
  7. Pour mixture into the prepared pan, use a spatula to spread it even.
  8. Sprinkle with some extra chocolate chips and soaked, drained goji berries.
  9. Bake for 18 – 20 minutes.
  10. Let it cool before cutting into pieces. Enjoy!

Note:

  1. If you are using home cooked adzuki beans then soak a cup of beans in 4 cups of water overnight. Drain and replace with 4 cups of fresh water. Bring it to a boil, and then simmer for about an hour. You can also cook them in a pressure cooker or a crock-pot. 1 cup of dry adzuki beans will yield 3 cups of cooked beans.
  2. You can replace adzuki beans with black beans.
