Preheat oven to 350 F. Combine all ingredients in a nutri bullet or good food processor, and blend until completely smooth. Really blend well.
Stir in the walnuts, almonds or sultanas then pour into a greased 8×8 pan.
Optional: sprinkle extra chocolate cacao over the top and a drizzle of maple syrup. I also put some chopped up almonds on top for a bit of extra crunch!
Cook the black bean brownies for 15-18 minutes, then let cool at least 10 minutes before trying to cut. Then place them in the fridge to firm up!
Makes 8-10 brownies
