    Baking

Steps

  • Preheat oven to 375F. Spray a mini muffin tin with cooking spray. (You can also make these as bars. Line an 8x8 baking dish with parchment paper and spray with cooking spray. I like to cut two even strips to cover the dish evenly both ways.)
  • Add rinsed beans, maple syrup, coconut oil, coffee, vanilla, and dates to the bowl of a large food processor. Process for about 3 minutes, or until smooth.
  • Add cup of the raspberries (save the rest), flax mixture, cocoa powder, almond meal, baking powder, and salt. Process again until smooth.Using a spatula, stir in in chocolate chips and remaining raspberries.
  • Pour batter into prepared muffin tin.
  • Bake for about about 25-30 minutes, or until brownies are set in the middle. Allow brownies to completely cool before carefully removing from muffin tin.Store brownies in an air-tight container for a couple days and then transfer to the fridge.
