Chocolate Butter Bean Brownies (Fudgy, Flourless and No Eggs!)
Fudgy chocolate Lima bean brownies with NO flour and NO eggs. Warm and right out of the oven, these are perfection with every bite. The beans add a well-rounded source of nutrition.
1can(15.5 oz.) butter beans, rinsed and drained
1/2cupcreamy peanut butter
1tablespoonpure maple syrup
2teaspoonspure vanilla extract
1/2cupsemi-sweet chocolate chips, more or less to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 8x8-inch baking pan with non-grease spray. (I recommend Baker's Joy.)
Place all ingredients, except the chocolate chips, into a food processor or blender. Process until completely smooth, scraping the sides of the bowl as necessary. Add the chocolate chips and pulse about 5 times.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, until edges are just browned and center is still fudgy. Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the pan for 15-20 minutes before slicing into squares. Serve immediately. Store covered at room temperature for up to 1 week.
TIP: For easy cleaner slicing, use a plastic knife.
