Black Bean Brownies

These brownies are some of the best I’ve ever had, and they’re grain-free too! You’ll never believe they were made with black beans and my guess is, neither will the kids. I brought 2 dozen to a Mexican-themed potluck, and they were the hit of the party.


  • 1.5 c soft-cooked black beans, drained well
  • 1/3 c virgin coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 c unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 c 90% dark chocolate, chopped up into 1/4 inch pcs.
  • 1/8 tsp. pink salt
  • 2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 1/3 c walnuts, finely chopped 
  • 2/3 – 1 c raw honey (depends how sweet you want them) 
  • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten

Preparation Method

Making these could NOT be simpler.
1. Preheat oven to 350°. Grease an 8×8 glass dish liberally with coconut oil.
2. Place all but the final 3 ingredients (eggs, chopped up chocolate and walnuts) into a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.
3. Fold in the remaining ingredients.
4. Pour into the pan and bake for about 30 minutes.
5. Let cool – the texture actually changes as they cool off, getting more “fudgy.”
