Black Bean Brownies (GF) REALLY!

Black Bean Brownies (Gluten-Free)

Brownies made of black beans…. really? When I think of black beans, I think of Mexican food…not dessert! I have not been so surprised by a recipe in a very long time. I promise, I could not even tell they were made with black beans instead of flour…it is incredible! You really can’t tell.


1 can black beans, rinsed and drained (15½ oz)

2 eggs

3 tbsp vegetable oil

3/8 cup maple syrup 

1/4 cup and 1 tbsp cocoa powder

1 tsp baking powder

1/8  tsp salt

1 tsp vanilla

Semi-sweet chocolate chips for topping (optional)



Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Add all ingredients to a blender and blend on low until all ingredients are well blended (there should not be any whole black beans in the batter!).

Lightly grease an 8×8 baking dish and pour batter inside.

Top with chocolate chips or nuts if desired.

Bake for 25 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean after inserting in the center.

Cool for 30 minutes before cutting and serving (otherwise they will fall apart).


Makes 9 brownies
