- 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
- 3 eggs
- 3 tbsp vegetable oil (or sub in natural applesauce to cut down on fat)
- 1/2 cup Ghirardelli Sweet Ground Chocolate & Cocoa (or 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa plus an extra 1/4 cup white sugar or other substitutions)
- 1/4 cup white sugar (adjust amount to your liking - also good with brown sugar)
- 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- pinch of salt
Add all ingredients to your food processor (but reserve a few walnuts to sprinkle on top) and process until smooth.
Pour into baking pan and sprinkle reserved walnuts over the top.
Bake for about 30 minutes until edges start to pull away from the pan. Let cool completely before cutting.
These are actually best kept refrigerated and served chilled.
Added note: If you are looking for a sugar-free dessert, I've heard these work well with Splenda in place of the sugar. If you try it, let me know how it is.
