Skinny Matcha Molten Lava Cake

60 minutes

If you haven’t seen or tried yet, Spot Dessert Bar (located in Manhattan and Queens) makes this crazy, gooey molten lava cake with a river of matcha flowing through it when you slice it open. So today, I made a Skyler Swap version that’s truly all natural. Get ready for it…. I made an avocado, black bean, and banana brownie with a dark chocolate drizzle and matcha powder coating. Yes. Black. Beans. I will take my fiber like this ANY DAY.

I want to note that this will bake until crispy, but the middle may stay softer. I wanted this with this recipe because I wanted to mimick that gooey result I saw at Spot Dessert Bar. If you want it firmer, cook longer!

Pour the mixture into a greased 8x8 brownie pan and bake for 20 minutes, until browned or crisp. The middle may be gooey-er. If you want it more firm, bake for 30 minutes. After you remove from the oven, let the brownies cool completely so they are able to set up.
