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.

1.2 Tsp chili powder
1/4 Tsp pepper

1/4 Tsp cinnamon

Notes
As noted by the recipe name, this came from my dad’s mom who was an outstanding cook! I would pass on using ketchup as a substitute for the tomato soup, since it’s really too sweet. I might consider using tomato paste and thin it with water, but tomato soup is a good base to start any BBQ sauce with. It comes recommended from my mom to use “only Campbell’s” soup. This was her BBQ recipe she used when I was a kid when we would eat chicken.
