  • 1 box organic black beans (drained & rinsed)
  • 1 c rolled or old-fashioned oats (gluten-free if needed)
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1/4 c pure maple syrup

    1. Add the black beans to a food processor & process until combined.
    2. Next add in the oats, scrape the sides of the bowl, & process.
    3. Continue to add a few ingredients at a time (occasionally scraping the sides of the bowl & processing) to ensure that everything gets broken down & combined well, until no ingredients are left.
    4. Pour your dough into small tart tins & bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.Let cool & then top with prepared powdered peanut butter (I added extra water to make it more runny). Enjoy!

Unfortunately with the cocoa powder, this is one treat you should not share with your pup 😦 He got some extra prepared powdered peanut butter though 🙂
