Sweet Treat: Black Bean Brownies

Black bean brownies?! You bet!


1 can black beans (15.5 oz rinsed & drained)

3 eggs

1/4 c. cocoa powder

3 T. coconut oil (or olive oil, etc.)

1/2 t. salt

2 t. vanilla extract

3/4 c. white sugar (or you can substitute all or part of it with honey/agave nectar! I’ve done it both ways & they turn out amazing!)

1 t. instant coffee

3/4 c. dark chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease an 8×8 baking dish.
  2. Combine black beans, eggs, oil, cocoa powder, salt, vanilla extract, sugar, and instant coffee in a blender (or food processor); blend until smooth; pour the mixture into the baking dish. Sprinkle the chocolate chips over the top of the mixture.
  3. Bake about 25-30 min.
  4. Enjoy!!
