Organic Black Bean Breakfast Cake

I get so bored with breakfasts! My family does not like eggs and bacon for breakfast, and cereal is not a very sustaining (or healthy) option. Every few months, I scour the internet looking for ideas of what to eat for breakfast that's made out of healthy ingredients. While this recipe does have sugar, it also has eggs, beans, carrots, and raw cocoa. Also, there are no grains, which is a huge bonus!

These are not very shelf-stable so I recommend that you make them, cut them, and then freeze them. They defrost beautifully and will then be ready and waiting for you.

1 15.5 ounce can drained organic black beans
3 large organic eggs
3 TBS unflavored organic oil or butter
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/3 cup organic sugar
1/3 cup organic carrot puree
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp homemade vanilla

* Preheat oven to 350 F, grease 8x8 pan with butter
1. Throw all the ingredients into a food processor.
2. Mix until thoroughly combined.
3. Pour batter into greased pan
4. Bake for about 20-30 minutes, until a toothpick comes out very clean (do NOT try to undercook these like you would a brownie or a cake because they will be a gooey mess)
