Black Bean Brownies

Black Bean Brownies are incredible!  All that wonderful fiber in a sweet tasting brownie — and you will never even taste the black beans!  And, of course, they are Gluten Free and Vegan!

I have made Black Bean Brownies for church potlucks and received rave reviews from folks that weren’t even Gluten Free or Vegan!

Following is the simple recipe to these tasty Black Bean Brownies:

Black Bean Brownies

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Line a 9-by-9-inch baking pan with parchment paper and brush with canola oil.


Put these ingredients in the bowl of a food processor:

1/2 cup canola oil
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons natural unsweetened cocoa powder,
1  cup cooked black beans (drain and rinse canned beans,
1/2 cup almond butter
1/2  tablespoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons ground flaxseed
1/2 cup less 2  tablespoons brewed coffee (about 3  ounces)
3/4 cup agave nectar
1/4  teaspoon sea salt

Puree for 1 minute until smooth. Pour mixture into pan and bake 35-40 minutes or until set.  Refrigerate; serve chilled.

Honey and peanut butter can be substituted respectively for agave nectar and almond butter in the same amounts.


Of course, when I make this Black Bean Brownie recipe, I use the following substitutes:

  • Coconut oil rather than canola oil
  • Peanut butter rather than almond butter
  • Chia seeds rather than flax seeds
  • Coconut nectar rather than agave nectar

But, of course, it is all to your liking and individual food preferences!
