And to make it over the top light, we are going to be making an avocado, frosting. These won’t be just brownies, they will be more of an energy bar tasting like brownies.

You can make them sweet, vegan, or just regular sweet as the recipe calls for black beans. For our brownie mix, we will need soft dates, cooked black beans, and olive oil, regular milk, and 3 eggs. Also flour, cacao powder, baking powder, and a pinch of salt. If you like nuts, you can use a handful of them to add extra crunchiness. And for the frosting, we are going to use 6 soft dates, coconut oil, coffee, cacao powder, and one avocado.

This is a good substitute for those looking for a vegan recipe, you can simply replace some ingredients, just leave the eggs, add chickpea water and more oat flour. This version needs an extra 15-25 minutes in the oven. Which will set once they are cool.

  1. Once have the ingredients gathered, turn on the oven at 350 Fahrenheit degrees.
  2. Then get our soft dates and the black beans and blend them together or use a food processor for it. Then add the milk and eggs, (without it for vegans) until get the smooth blend.
  3. Add the flour, can also use almond or oat flour and cacao powder, baking powder, and salt. Mix it up until get a homogeneous blend.
  4. Then simply add the blend and set the baking dish and let the brownies bake for 30 minutes, or until they are firm to touch. Let them cool outside for 20 minutes.
