Black Bean Brownies (with coconut oil)

Black Bean Brownies with Coconut Oil

You know what I love more than desserts? Healthy desserts of course! And even cooler than healthy desserts are desserts with unassuming ingredients. ๐Ÿ™‚ These black bean brownies with coconut oil make the cut. 

We had a friend and fellow foodie coming over to dinner and I wanted a dessert to please and surprise! I love adding unusually healthy ingredients into my desserts and so I thought of a black bean brownie recipe. I added oats, as oats are super versatile, work great as a regular flour replacer and taste delicious, along with some coconut oil and chocolate chips (don’t skimp out on the chocolate chips, they are a must). 

The result was healthy delicious goodness. ๐Ÿ™‚ The perfect combination of fudge and chocolate. We stored them in the fridge for a few days and they were still moist. Try it for yourself and see!
