Black bean Chocolate fudgy muffins

March 20, 2018

 

I didn't let on to my family what was in these before they tried them and they went down a treat!  They are totally plant based, no refined flour, no eggs, or butter, yet a good source of protein and little refined sugar.  To be honest, you could leave out the chocolate squares altogether, but I have to admit, coming out of the oven, the melted middles were a real delight!

 

Why not give them a go and see for yourself x

 

Ingredients:

240g black beans (I used a tin, please rinse and

 

drain well)

3 tbsp cacao

40g oats (whizzed in blender to flour consistency)

2 tbsp maple syrup

6 pitted dates 

2 tbsp melted coconut oil

2 tsp vanilla extract

6-12 squares of minimum 70% quality dark chocolate (I used Green & Blacks therefore used 2 squares per muffin as quite small).

1/2 tsp baking powder & a pinch of salt

 

Method:

1.  Preheat the oven to 180C

2.  Whizz your oats in the blender then add all the other ingredients, except the chocolate, and whizz again until combined

3.  Spoon a little mixture into each of the muffin cases, then place 1-2 squares of chocolate on top before adding the remaining mixture to the cases.

4.  Bake in the oven for 16-20 minutes until a skewer comes out clean.

 

As mentioned, these are at their best eaten warm however they are still lovely the next day too.  Keep in an airtight container and consume within 3 days.
