The Best Black Bean Brownies

These are NOT the typical “healthy” substitution. They are fudgy and fantastic and my kids LOVE them. Try them for a higher fibre, higher protein decadent desert. They are also gluten-free and vegan!


Makes 12 brownies

  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder

  • 1 x 15oz can black beans, drained and rinsed (rinse well)

  • ½ cup oat flour

  • ¼ tsp salt

  • ⅓ cup maple syrup

  • 2 tbsp brown sugar

  • ¼ cup avocado oil *or other vegetable oil

  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

  • ½ tsp baking power

  • ⅔ cup chocolate chips (reserve some for topping)


  1. Preheat oven to 350F, line a pan with parchment paper or lightly grease an 8x8 pan

  2. Combine all ingredients in a food processor (except chocolate chips) and blend until completely smooth

  3. Stir in chocolate chips and pour into the prepared pan

  4. Top with additional chocolate chips

  5. Bake for 16-19 minutes and cool for 5-10 minutes before slicing them into brownies. If too soft, leave them in the fridge overnight
