I have something special (and super delicious) for you today!

This may even become one of your new favorite recipes.

This new brownie recipe is decadent and delicious – and it also happens to be vegan-friendly, gluten-free, AND packed with fiber!

AND it’s super simple and easy to throw together.

So what’s the secret ingredient?

Black beans.

Now before you turn up your nose on the idea, give them a shot!

Note: I highly recommend using a food processor because the batter is thick and can be hard to stir. If you want to make these vegan, be sure to use vegan chocolate chips.

Vegan Black Bean Brownies
1 15-oz can (250 g) black beans, rinsed & drained
2 tbsp raw cacao powder
½ cup (40 g) quick oats
½ tsp salt
½ cup (125 g) pure maple syrup or honey
⅓ cup (80 g) nut butter (almond or PB work great)
2 tsp vanilla extract
½ tsp baking powder
⅔ cup (140 g) chocolate chips
Coconut oil (for greasing the pan)

Preheat your oven to 350ºF (175ºC). Prepare an 8×8-inch (20×20 cm) pan by greasing it with coconut oil.

Place all of the ingredients EXCEPT CHIPS in a food processor. Blend until completely smooth. Stir in the chips.

Scrape the mixture into your prepared pan and place in the oven. Bake for 18-20 minutes before removing. Let sit for 10-15 minutes before cutting into 9 squares.

These are so delish. If you keep them in the fridge they will stay nice & fudgy.

If you like to bake, keep your eye out for my next post, because I’ve got some really good stuff coming your way. 🙂
