Vegan Black Bean Brownies

I found this recipe on the No Meat Athlete blog and had to share it. It's the first time I ever made a vegan dessert.

For the Mix:

1 1/2 Cups whole wheat flour
1tsp salt
1tsp baking powder
2 1/4 cups raw sugar
1 1/4 cups cocoa
4tsp instant coffee powder
1 1/2 cups chopped hazelnuts

Also Need:

1 15 oz can black beans, rinsed and filled with new water
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup of water (eyeball it by filling up half the empty can)

Combine dry ingredients in large mixing bowl.

drain a can of black beans and rinse thoroughly until the water runs clear. Return the black beans to the can and fill with water. Puree the beans and water. Add the puree to the dry mix along with the vanilla and extra cup of water. Stir to combine

Pour the batter into a greased 9x13 pan. Bake for 30-40 minutes, rotating the pan around halfway through. When brownies are finished they should be firm in the center and the edges will slightly puffy and starting to pull away from the sides.. It's important not to over bake in the oven because they will keep baking once you take them out

Let brownies cool completely then use a 2x2 inch cookie cutter to cut into 24 squares
