Ingredients:

1 oz dark organic chocolate (70% cocoa or greater)
1 1/2 cups soft-cooked black beans, rinsed and drained
2 eggs
1 egg white
2 tbsp olive oil
1/4 heaped cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup raw organic honey
1/4 to 1/2 cup unsalted walnuts, chopped
Extra walnuts for topping (optional)
Unsweetened shredded coconut for topping (optional)

Instructions:

-Preheat oven to 350°F.
-Melt dark chocolate in a small saucepan over low heat with 1 tbsp water mixed in.
-Combine melted chocolate, beans, eggs, egg white, oil, cocoa powder, baking powder, vanilla, applesauce and honey in a food processor; process until smooth. If you want the walnuts blended in, no chunks, then add walnuts and process. Of you want walnuts chunks-fold them in last. Pour your batter into your pan/ramekins/muffin holders-whichever you want.
-Top with shredded coconut and walnuts (optional)
-Bake in preheated oven until the tops are dry and the edges start to pull away from the sides, about 20 minutes for ramekins and muffins and 30 minutes for baking dish.
