It has become my absolute passion: combining ‘the forbidden’ and ‘the healthy’. And I have to admit I enjoy seeing my friends faces when I tell them what they are actually eating, when for example biting into one of my brownies. “Black beans?!” Yes. And these black bean brownies are also flour-free, (refined)sugar-free, gluten free, vegan, high in fiber, iron and not to forget: fudgy, gooey and incredibly delicious. Sounds like a good & healthy snack, right? All you need is a food processor or blender, a baking pan, an oven and the ingredients listed below.
2 cans of black beans, well rinsed and drained
2 chia eggs = (mix 2 heaping tbsp chia seeds + 6 tbsp water)
4 tbsp coconut oil, melted
3 tbsp of flax seeds
1 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tsp (Himalayan) salt
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup coconut sugar or maple syrup, or a mix of both 🙂
- Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C).
- Use coconut oil to grease the baking pan (a muffin pan or a bigger rectangular one – I mostly end up using both 🙂 ).
- If you’re using canned black beans (which is definitively the easiest way! ) thoroughly drain and rinse them.
