  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Rinse beans very thoroughly and drain them completely. Now do it again. You really don't want any "beany" tasting liquid in your brownies!
  • In your Vitamix or blender, add rinsed and drained beans, eggs, vanilla, coconut oil, sugar or honey, and cacao powder. Blend until smooth, then add the salt and pulse until well mixed. Batter will be thin.
  • Grease an a 8"x8" baking dish liberally with coconut oil, and pour batter into dish. (These come out only about an inch thick, so if you like them thicker, double the recipe, change to a 9"x13" pan, and add a little more baking time.)
  • Top with optional walnuts or other toppings.
  • Bake for 30 minutes or until the top and sides are set, and the insides are just a little bit soft.
  • Cool before serving and enjoy!
