Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Grease a standard bread pan or use a nonstick pan and set aside. Mash the black beans in a large bowl and combine all of the ingredients until evenly combined. Transfer to the pan, and pat down firmly and tightly using a spatula. Bake until firm and browned on the outside, for 45-60 minutes. Allow the loaf to cool and firm up before serving, about 15-20 minutes.
