Chocolate Black Bean Cake Pops


  1. 1 15 oz. can of black beans
  2. 5 tablespoons cacao powder
  3. 2 tablespoons peanutbutter
  4. 2 tablespoon brown sugar (or any natural sweetner of your choice)
  5. 1/4 teaspoon fine grain sea salt
  6. 3/4 cup chocolate chips


  1. In a food processor, combine the black beans, cacao powder, peanut butter, brown sugar and sea salt. Pulse until the mixture is well combined.
  2. Roll the dough into 18 balls and place on a lined baking sheet. Place a toothpick in the top of each ball and place in the refrigerator 15 minutes.
  3. Melt the chocolate (double boil method) and dip each cake pop in.
  4. Sprinkle with coconut and sea salt while the chocolate is still setting. I dipped batches of 4 at a time to ensure the chocolate was still wet for each sprinkling.
  5. Let set and enjoy!
