Divine Chocolate Mint Black Bean Cake *Now with Hot Fudge Frosting*

This cake is amazing. Believe me, but still make it for yourself. I love cutting flour when I can, it makes my joints feel happier, and this has so much protein, fiber, and potassium in it because it has a whole pound of beans!

Preheat oven to 325*

Add the following ingredients to your food processor, as well as 1/4 cup mint and 1/4 cup dark chocolate pieces:

*1 1/2 cup of cooked beans, any kind/color
*5 large eggs
*2 tsp mint extract
*1/2 tsp salt
*6 tbsp unsalted butter OR coconut oil
*3/4 cup erythritol plus 1/2 tsp pure stevia extract OR 1/2 cup honey plus 1 tsp pure stevia extract
*1 tsp baking powder
*1/2 tsp baking soda
*1 tbsp water (leave out if you use honey)
*1/4 cup mint chips
*1/4 cup dark chocolate chips

Blend till everything is very well mixed and the beans and chips are totally pulverized, pour into a cake pan lightly dusted with cocoa powder. There is no rising, so keep that in mind when you choose your pan.
 Mix in an additional 1/2 cup mint chips and 1/2 dark chocolate chips, then bake for 45 minutes, or until the center is solid and slightly beginning to crack, and a toothpick stuck in the center comes out clean.

Let cool in the pan, then transfer to a cooling rack.

I'm making the frosting tomorrow, to be used right before serving. Stay tuned!


My super healthy and sugar free frosting recipe never comes out quite right, so I decided to give a hot fudge kind of frosting a try. It's NOT healthy, but mah gawd is it delicious!

1 can of sweetened condensed milk
1 stick of butter
1/2 bag of dark chocolate chips
1/2 bag mint chips

Melt over medium low heat, whisk till well mixed and thick
Let cool for twenty minutes off the heat, whisking occasionally
Cut cake and pour hot fudge over each piece.

Devour! :)
