Vegan (Black Bean) Brownies!

Dairy free, gluten-free, vegan brownies made with black beans? Incredibly delicious, smooth flavor with no short-lived sugar spike after eating them. A must try! 

Surprisingly yummy! These are made with a full can of black beans.

There is no gluten, eggs, or dairy. Recipe Inspired by @Detoxonista. 


  • 1.5 cups organic black beans (1, 15 ounce can) rinsed
  • 1/4 cup raw almond butter
  • 6 TBSP raw cacao powder 
  • 2 TBSP organic ground flax seed
  • 2 TSP vanilla extract
  • 1 cup coconut sugar (I did a little less)
  • 2 TSP apple cider vinegar (or balsamic vinegar) 
  • 1/4 TSP sea salt
  • 1/2 TSP baking soda
  • 3/4 cup vegan dark chocolate chips (I did 1/2 cup)



1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. You will be using a 9x9 pan. Grease it or line it with parchment paper. 

2) Puree the rinsed black beans in a food processor (fitted with an s blade). 

3) Add in the almond butter, cacao powder, ground flax seed, vanilla extract, coconut sugar, vinegar, salt and baking soda to the black beans. Process until smooth. 

4) Use a spatula to spread the batter into your pan and top with the dark chocolate chips before tossing into the oven.

5) Bake for about 30 minutes. Use a butter knife to check to see if it is done. If the batter sticks to the knife, cook it a little longer. 

Once cooled... Enjoy with a glass of (Unsweetened) Vanilla Almond Milk... yum!!!
