Total time: 
Serves: 9-12 brownies
Made with only whole, natural ingredients - including no refined sugar or flour. You would never know that these brownies are actually good for you and loaded with protein and fiber!
  • 1 (15 oz) can black beans, drained and rinsed very well
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ cup quick oats
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ cup honey or pure maple syrup (agave would also work)
  • ¼ cup coconut oil (or vegetable oil would also work)
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (they do not taste as good without them, I don't recommend making them without the chocolate chips
  • If desired, you can use more chips to sprinkle on top
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 8x8" baking pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Combine all ingredients except chocolate chips in a high-powered blender or food processor, and blend until completely smooth (it will look like liquid chocolate).
  3. Stir the chocolate chips into the batter, then pour into prepared pan. If desired, sprinkle extra chocolate chips over the top.
  4. Cook the black bean brownies 15-18 minutes, then let cool at least 10 minutes before trying to cut, so that they can set up a little. If they still look a bit undercooked, you can place them in the fridge overnight and they will firm up perfectly.
