Recipe Ingredients for Dark Chocolate Mini Cakes

2 tbsp sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup dark chocolate chips
1 1/2 cup canned black beans, drained and rinsed thoroughly
6 large egg whites, lightly beaten
3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
3 tsp vanilla extract
3/8 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp Confectioners' sugar, for dusting

Recipe Directions for Dark Chocolate Mini Cakes

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray 12 muffin cups with cooking spray. Sprinkle 1/2 tsp sugar into each muffin cup and tilt to coat evenly. Melt chocolate chips in small microwave-save bowl at 50% power 1 1/2 minutes. Remove from microwave and stir until smooth. Place 1/2 cup, beans, egg whites, vanilla and baking powder in food processor or blender; process until smooth. Add melted chocolate and pulse several times until thoroughly blended. Divide batter among 12 muffin cups. Place muffin tin on rimmed baking sheet. Bake until cakes have puffed and tops spring back when touched lightly, 14 to 17 minutes. Let cool slightly. (Cakes will sink slightly as they cool.) Loosen edges and turn muffins out. Serve slightly warm or at room temperature for the fudgiest texture. (Leftover cakes will keep, covered, in the refrigerator for up to 4 days or well wrapped in freezer for up to 3 months.) Dust cakes with confectioners' sugar.
