Blend all ingredients together in Blender (I use Vitamix) until nearly smooth or smooth
Grease 8″x 8″ baking pan with coconut oil. Pour mix in prepared dish.
Bake 40-45 min until set in center.
Allow to cool on rack 10-15 min at least, better completely. Cut in squares.
Be careful lifting the squares out of the dish, they tend to fall apart unless very cold.
Keep in the fridge (I like the brownies best cold out of the fridge. They are fudgey and sooo delicious. You wouldn’t know there are beans in it!)
