These lentil brownies are seriously good. So gooey, nutritious and delicious, you can’t even tell they contain lentils. The best part is that this recipe requires only few ingredients and can be whipped together in a few minutes.

To make a small tray of these brownies you’ll need:

1/2 cup of lentils

1 cup of oats

3 tbsp raw cocoa powder

3 tbsp coconut oil – melted

1/3 cup of maple syrup

3 tbsp chunky peanut butter

Pre-heat the oven to 180C.

Start off by cooking lentils. Pop them in a sauce pan, cover with water (proportions are 3 cups of water to 1 cup of dry lentils) bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for about 10 min until they are tender. Drain and set aside to cool for 10 min.

Next mix lentils, oats and maple syrup in a food processor (you can skip this step for a chunkier dough) until the dough becomes smooth. Add cocoa powder, coconut oil & peanut butter and mix thoroughy. If the dough is too thick, add a dash of water for thinner consistency. 

Pour the dough into a lined baking tray and bake for 20 minutes. Voila!
