3/4 cup cooked PNW Co-op Pardina brown lentils (1/2 cup dried)

2 Tablespoons vanilla coconut yogurt

2 Tablespoons almond milk

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup vegan butter substitute, melted (like Earth Balance) 

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/4 cup strong coffee

Pinch of salt


• Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

• Line an 8x8-inch pan with parchment paper, leaving a 2-inch overhang on all sides.

• In a food processor or blender, blend the cooked lentils, yogurt and almond milk, scraping down the sides periodically. Blend until completely smooth.

• Transfer mixture to a bowl and mix in melted vegan butter.

• Add the cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, vanilla, coffee and salt. Stir until well combined.

• Spoon batter into pan and spread with a spatula until smooth.

• Bake for 30 minutes. They may appear not quite done, but they'll firm up as they cool.    

These are especially delicious served cold, and it helps when cutting them, too.
