Black Bean Brownies (Vegan, GF)

Black Bean Brownies (Vegan, GF)

Prep time: 
15 minutes

Cooking time: 
15 minutes

8 people


2 cups black beans, cooked and rinsed

2/3 cup Sucanat (or sugar of choice)

1/3 cup cocoa powder

2 Tablespoons coconut oil, melted

3 eggs (or 3 Tablespoons of flax + 3 Tablespoons water)

1 1/2 Tablespoons vanilla

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

Handful of walnuts (optional)

Handful of chocolate chips (optional)


In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients except walnuts and chocolate chips.

Mix with a spoon and then transfer to a blender or food processor until black beans are smooth and blended.

Pour mixture into a greased 8 x 8 pan. Top with walnuts and chocolate chips, if using.

Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. (I used the flax instead of the eggs, so mine took another 5-7 minutes to harden.)

Allow to cool for 10 minutes. Enjoy!



If they still seem runny when done, keep them in the oven for another five minutes. They do harden up once they cool, however!
