Servings : 8-10 Bars
1 1/2 Cups Black Beans (1 15-Oz Can, drained and rinsed very well) (250g after draining)
3 Tablespoons raw Cocoa Powder (15g)
7 Tablespoons Hemptons Pure Protein Powder (45g)
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
1/3 Cup pure Maple Syrup or raw Honey (75g)
Pinch pure Stevia or 2 Tablespoons Sugar of choice
3 1/2 Tablespoons Coconut Oil (35g)
1 Tablespoon Pure Vanilla Extract
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1/3 Cup to 2/3 Cup Chocolate Chips
Preheat the oven to 180 ̊C.
Combine all ingredients except choc chips in a high-quality food processor and blend until absolutely and completely smooth. (A blender works if you absolutely must, but the texture and taste will be much better in a food processor.)
Stir in the chocolate chips.
Pour into a greased 20 x 20cm square pan.
Sprinkle extra chocolate chips over the top.
Cook the bars for 16 minutes.
They will still look underdone when you take them from the oven, but this is okay.
Let cool, then pat down with a pancake spatula.
Refrigerate overnight. The bars will have firmed up and are now ready to cut and eat.
Store leftovers in the refrigerator.
