The Best Black Bean Brownie Recipe

delicious desserts Apr 26, 2019

Does the thought of adding black beans into a recipe sound weird to you? Well stick with me, they are one of mother nature's superfoods. Full of protein and they are also a great source of fibre too. Using black beans in this recipe means we don't have to use wheat flour, making them a gluten-free treat.

29 gm dark chocolate (80% dark organic)
1 1/2 cup black beans, canned (rinsed well and drained)
2 medium eggs
2 tbsp coconut oil (virgin, organic)
1/4 cup cacao powder or unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla extract, pure
1/4 cup Applesauce, unsweetened (organic)
1/4 cup maple syrup, pure
1/2 cup walnuts (unsalted chopped pieces)
1/2 tsp salt (I use Himalayan Rock salt)


Preheat oven to 1750C/350F.

Grease a square baking dish with coconut oil. Then dust the pan with cocoa powder.

Melt dark chocolate in a small saucepan over low heat with 1 tablespoon of water mixed in to help it melt.

Drain and rinse black beans.

Combine together in a food processor, beans, melted chocolate, eggs, coconut oil, baking powder, vanilla, salt, applesauce, and maple syrup.

Process until smooth.

Just before pouring the mixture into the baking dish, stir in the walnuts.

Bake in the oven until the top is dry and the edges pull away from the sides, about 30 minutes.
