PRODUCT INFORMATION

Ingredients

400g tin organic black beans, drained and rinsed
2 tbsp. organic coconut oil
1/3 cup organic coconut sugar
1/3 cup organic cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon coarse sea salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/3 cup maple syrup (or honey, agave or carob syrup)
2 tablespoon chia seeds
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup chopped dark chocolate (70% or higher), broken into small pieces

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degress celsius. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Mix chia seeds, maple syrup, and vanilla in a bowl and set aside for 15 minutes to form a gel.

The batter should hold together. Remove blade from the food processor and add chocolate pieces and cranberries. Fold to incorporate.

  5. Bake for 15 minutes until the edges are browning. Cool and eat. Store in the fridge.

Recipe Notes

I tried using raw cacao powder instead of cocoa powder but they were very bitter, so if you do this I would suggest adding a sweetener. These cookies are not too sweet, they are rich and satisfying by only eating one at a time.
