- 1 can (15 oz.) black beans, drained and rinsed
- 200g Tribal Moon Ceremonial Grade Cacao
- 1 cup pure maple syrup
- 5 tablespoons coconut oil
- 1 heaping teaspoon baking powder
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 flax eggs
- 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate morsels
- 12 teaspoons natural peanut or almond butter
Make your flax egg in a small bowl by combining the flax-seed meal and water, mix well. Place in refrigerator for at 5 – 7 minutes to set. Should be thick and goopy when ready.
Prepare your muffin or cake tin by lightly greasing with oil. Use muffin or cake liners if you prefer.
In a food processor/blender, add black beans, flax-eggs, Tribal Moon Ceremonial Grade Cacao, maple syrup, oil, baking powder and vanilla. Blend until creamy stopping to scrape down the sides as needed. The batter should be about the consistency of pudding, not too thick, not too thin. Mix in chocolate chips.
Fill each cup about 1/4 – 1/3 full. Use any remaining batter to make sure all tins are equally filled. Place 1 teaspoon of chilled nut butter in the centre of each cup. Using a toothpick, chopstick or something pointy, swirl the nut butter into the chocolate.
Place in oven on middle rack and bake for 22 – 25 minutes. Let cool about 15 – 20 minutes. Using a butter knife, gently guide the knife around the outside of the muffin making sure it is away from the pan. Gently nudge under each brownie with the knife and lift removing from the tin.
