Attention all brownie lovers! If you love a delicious, fudgy brownie, but not all of the sugar and calories, then this Black Bean Brownie recipe is for you. Made with no flour, toxic oils or refined sugar, these healthy black bean brownies are an awesome alternative to your favorite chocolate treat.

Step 1: Prep your ingredients

These black bean brownies are super simple to make and require minimal ingredients. Here’s what you’ll need: 1 can of black beans, rinsed, maple syrup, cocoa powder, coconut oil, eggs, vanilla, salt and chocolate chips.

Ingredient note: for the coconut oil I use Carrington Farms Organic Coconut Oil (liquid and unflavored). For the chocolate chips I use Enjoy Life Mini Chocolate Chips – these contain only 3 ingredients: cane sugar (raw and non-refined), unsweetened chocolate and cocoa butter.

Step 2: Add ingredients (except chocolate chips) to a blender

The best way to attain a rich, fudgy texture in these brownies is to ensure the batter is smooth and well incorporated. Using a blender or food processor is the best way to puree the beans to a smooth form.

I used my Blendtec Twisted Jar and Blendtec Designer Series Blender. The Twisted jar is perfect for thicker mixtures like nut butter, dips and batters. You can get 25% off this Jar and Blender by using discount code DELIGHTFULEMADE at checkout.

Step 3: Blend until smooth

To make sure the beans and other ingredients are smooth and well incorporated, I blend for 45-60 seconds.

Step 4: Add chocolate chips to batter, reserve some for topping

The last ingredient to add is the chocolate chips. Reserve 2-3 tablespoons of the 1/2 cup total – this will be for topping the brownies. Add the remainder of chocolate chips to the batter and fold in.

Step 5: Pour batter into prepared pan and top with remaining chocolate chips

Pour the batter into an 8×8 pan or baking dish that has been sprayed with non-stick baking spray. I use Spectrum Organic Coconut Oil Non-Stick Spray.

Top the batter with the remaining 2-3 tablespoons of the chocolate chips. 

Bake at 350 degrees for 30-34 minutes. I discovered that 32 minutes is the sweet spot for baking time. 35 minutes left the edges of the brownies overly dry and flaky.

Test the brownies for doneness by inserting a toothpick into the center. If the toothpick comes out clean and crumb-free, the brownies are done. 

Let the black bean brownies cool to room temperature before slicing. They will come out wonderfully moist with a perfect fudgy consistency!

Frequently Asked Questions about Healthy Black Bean Brownies:

What makes this black bean brownie recipe healthy?

  • This black bean brownie recipe is made much healthier by using maple syrup (instead of refined white or brown sugar), black beans (instead of flour) and coconut oil (instead of highly processed, toxic vegetable or canola oil).

  • Walnuts (in batter or as a topping)
  • Good quality peanut or cashew butter, swirl into the batter after adding to the pan
  • Unsweetened coconut flakes (topping)

Ingredients

  • 1 (15 oz) can, black beans, drained and well rinsed
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 c. maple syrup
  • 1/3 c. coconut oil (I use flavorless)
  • 1/4 c. cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 c. good quality mini-chocolate chips, divided

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray an 8x8" pan with non-stick baking spray (I use coconut oil spray.) Set prepared pan aside.
  2. To your blender, add the rinsed beans, eggs, maple syrup, coconut oil, cocoa powder, vanilla and salt. Blend well for 45-60 seconds or until ingredients are a very smooth consistency.
  3. Set aside 2-3 tablespoons of the mini-chocolate chips. Add the remaining chocolate chips to the batter and fold in. Pour batter into prepared pan, and top with the remaining chocolate chips.
  4. Bake for 30-34 minutes - I discovered that 32 minutes is the sweet spot. Before removing from the oven test brownies for doneness by inserting a toothpick into the center. If the toothpick comes out clean and crumb-free, the brownies are done.
  5. Remove from oven and let cool to room temperature before slicing. Enjoy

Notes

Store the brownies covered or in an airtight container and refrigerate. They will keep for 5-7 days refrigerated, or 3-4 days at room temperature. If freezing, wrap individual brownies in press-and-seal wrap, and store in an airtight container. Defrost in the microwave or let thaw at room temperature.
