Ingredients

(Makes 20-24 )


2 tins black beans

6 tbsp cacao powder

80g oats, ground

4 tbsp maple syrup

12 pitted dates

4 tbsp melted coconut oil

4 tsp vanilla extract

3-4 tbsp coconut milk

1 tsp baking powder



Method

1. Preheat oven to 180C.


2. Place the oats into the food processor and blitz to create a coarse flour.


3. Add everything else, except the milk, in the food processor and mix until smooth, scraping down the sides if necessary.


4. Add the milk and blend again to achieve a loose, but not runny mixture.


5. Line a baking tray with baking paper and spoon the mixture onto the tray.


6. Bake in the oven for 16-20 minutes until a skewer comes out cleanly.


7. Cool, then cut and serve.


Best eaten in the first few days, however can be kept in the fridge for 5-6 days, or freeze in portions for up to 1 month.
