Fudgy Adzuki Bean Brownies

  • Preheat your oven to 180°C / 350°F. Line a 8x8 or 9x5 baking pan with parchment paper, or grease well.
  • In the bowl of a food processor combine the pitted dates and adzuki beans. Pulse until they're broken up and well combined.
  • Add the vanilla, cocoa, oil, and eggs, and run the food processor until the batter is very smooth.
  • Stir half of the chopped dark chocolate into the batter at this point, if desired (I highly recommend this!)
  • Scrape the batter into the prepared baking pan, and then scatter the remaining chopped chocolate over the top.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes, until the edges are set but the middle is still just very slightly jiggly. You can bake them a bit less for fudgier brownies if you like.
  • Remove from the oven and cool for about 10 minutes before you cut into them.
