Black Bean Brownies | Gluten free 

I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to make black bean brownies! They are delicious!

Black beans are a great source of protein and fiber and are the perfect ingredient to use when making flour free desserts – like brownies. The combination of beans and eggs help give the brownies structure and a delicious fudgy texture. They are heaven! 

These grain free brownies would make a delicious addition to any Mother’s Day brunch or empending summer party. No one will suspect they are made with beans (sshhh)!


1 (15oz) can of black beans

1/4 cup coconut oil

1/2 cup cocoa

1 egg

1/4 cup maple syrup

1/2 cup almond flour

2 tsp vanilla

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

1/3 cup coconut sugar

1/3 cup chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Add all ingredients except the chocolate chips to the bowl of a food processor and pulse on high until everything is combined and smooth.
  3. Transfer the batter to a greased and parchment lined brownie pan and sprinkle with the chocolate chips.
  4. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the brownie sets and no longer jiggles.
  5. Let cool completely and enjoy!


I hope you love these secretly healthy brownies as much as I do.
