Fudgey Brownies With Fall Spices

As soon as the weather cools this time of year, even just slightly, I get excited about sweaters, pumpkins, blankets, and warm spices. I sip on chai tea and add spices to my coffee, and think about making healthier, warm, baked goods. These brownies are the perfect combinations of all of these fantastic fall things.

They're full of spices that will remind you of chai, and are a bit healthier than regular brownies — using healthier sugar and fats, as well as whole grain flours like teff, and fiber-rich black beans. They are the perfect dessert to spice up your fall.

Fall Fudge Brownies:

Makes approximately 12-16 brownies.

  • 3/4 cup coconut oil, softened
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup plain coconut milk, unsweetened
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup tapioca flour
  • 1/2 cup sorghum flour
  • 1/2 cup teff flour
  • 1/4 cup brown rice flour
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp. cardamom
  • A big pinch of sea salt

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Melt 1/3 of the chocolate chips with coconut milk in a double boiler, stirring frequently. Drain and rinse your black beans and blend them until pureed. Set aside in a bowl.

Add oil and the remaining whole chocolate chips to your blender and blend until they start to combine. Add the eggs, melted chocolate chips, coconut sugar, vanilla, salt and spices to your blender. Blend until smooth.

Add in the black beans and puree again. Add in the flour slowly (one at a time) and blend until combined. Pour into a brownie pan or two bread pans, ether greased or lined with parchment paper.

Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Let cool for 30 minutes before cutting and serving.
