Instructions
Black Bean Chocolate Cupcakes
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. In a blender, blend black beans and peanut butter until smooth and there are no black bean chunks. Add in banana and blend.
  3. Add in cocoa powder, honey, baking powder and vanilla extract and blend until smooth. While blender is off, scrape down the sides and edges with spatula to make sure everything is well mixed.
  4. Put about a tablespoon of batter in a lined mini muffin tin. The batter is thick and cupcakes will maintain same shape throughout baking. Bake at 325 degrees for 20-25 minutes. A toothpick should come out mostly clean though the cupcakes are very fudgey.
Date Syrup
  1. In a small saucepan heat on high the dates and water. Bring to a boil.
  2. Add honey and maple syrup and stir constantly. Continue to stir as the syrup thickens and keep the dates from sticking to the bottom.
  3. Reduce heat to low and let the syrup simmer and thicken. Spoon syrup over Black Bean Chocolate Cupcakes and enjoy.
