Black Bean Brownies

INGREDIENTS:
1 can black beans
1 cup unsweetened apple sauce
1/3 cup agave nectar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup cocoa (unsweetened)
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup oats
2 tablespoons flour (I used whole wheat flour)

DIRECTIONS:
Combine the first 6 ingredients in a food processor until smooth. Pour mixture into a bowl and add the oats and flour. NOTE: I ground up my oatmeal into a flour instead of leaving them as rolled oats. Pour contents into and 8×8 Pyrex pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or when the top is firm to the touch.

Whole Grain Corn Muffins

INGREDIENTS:
1 1/2 tablespoons ground flaxseed
1 cup unsweetened plain almond milk
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup 100% pure maple syrup
1 cup corn meal
1 cup oat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup frozen corn kernels, thawed

DIRECTIONS:
Preheat oven to 375°F. In a small bowl, combine flaxseed with almond milk and set aside to allow it to gel for 5 minutes.

In a large mixing bowl, stir applesauce and maple syrup together and add in flaxseed/almond milk mixture. Then sift in corn meal, oat flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Stir until well-combined, but avoid over-mixing. Add in the corn kernels.

Either using a silicone 12-cup muffin pan or a 12-cup muffin pan lined with paper, spoon out equal portions of batter into the cups. Bake for 20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center. Serve warm.
