Brownies made with black beans instead of flour (very tasty!).

  • Prep: 15 mins
  • Cook: 20 mins
  • Yields: 12 brownies


Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease an 8 x 8 pan.

Blend all ingredients until they are completely smooth (food processor or VitaMix), really smooth, like pudding.

Pour batter into the greased 8x8 pan and bake for 15-18 minutes. Let cool at least 10 minutes before slicing. If they are a little bit undercooked, chill in the fridge for an hour or more to firm them up.


1 ½ cups black beans (approx. 14-15 oz can), drained and rinsed well

2 ½ TBS cocoa powder

½ cup quick oats

¼ tsp salt

1 banana, ripe (or ½ cup apple juice concentrate, unsweetened)

¼ cup vegetable oil

2 tsp vanilla extract

½ tsp baking powder
