Makes 9 brownies


  • 1 can of black beans (drained and rinsed)
  • 2 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1/2 cup quick oats
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (you can add more if you’d like…we won’t tell)


  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius. Combine all ingredients except chips in a good food processor, and blend until completely smooth. Make sure to blend everything really well together.
  2. Stir in the chips, then pour into a greased 8×8 pan. Optional: sprinkle extra chocolate chips over the top.
  3. Cook the black bean brownies 15-18 minutes, then let cool at least 10 minutes before trying to cut. If they still look a bit undercooked, you can place them in the fridge overnight and they will magically firm up.
