Black Bean Fudge Brownies

Servings: 12


  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Blender
  • Parchment paper
  • 20 cm (8 inch) square pan


  • 1 cup Cooked Black Beans just under ½ a cup when dry
  • ¼ cup Coconut Oil
  • ½ teaspoon Sea Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • ¼ cup Maple Syrup
  • ½ cup Pitted Dates I used Deglet Noor
  • ¼ cup Hot Water
  • cup Cocoa Powder
  • 1 tablespoon Chia Mixed with 3 tablespoons Water
  • ½ cup Almond Flour
  • ½ cup Chopped Dark Chocolate or Mini Chips


  • Sea SaltVanilla Coconut Cream
  • Berries
  • Cacao Nibs


  • Begin by mixing the chia seeds with the 3 tablespoons. water and set them aside. Combine the dates with the ¼ cup hot water and let them soften for 15 minutes or so. Once they soften, mash them a bit with a fork.
  • Combine the black beans, coconut oil, sea salt, maple syrup, and mashed dates with water, cocoa, and chia egg in a Vitamix or high speed blender. Blend until the mixture looks smooth and you no longer see any bean or date pieces.
  • Empty the contents into a bowl and stir in the almond flour and chocolate chips.
  • Spread the mixture into a parchment lined 20 cm (8 inch) square pan and bake at 175°C (350°F) for 40 minutes.
  • Once cool, you can slice and eat the brownies as is, sprinkle with sea salt, or top with coconut cream and raspberries for something extra special. Left overs keep well in the fridge or freezer.


  1. 5 stars
    These were quite decadent, 5 stars for the recipe but I need to comment on my process-boy was it a mess! I lost a 1/4 of the batter in the Vitamix and more in the bowl I mixed the almond flour in. I had a terrible time with the parchment paper as well. I loved that these were wholesome treats but I need to work on making the process less messy. Batter is not runny and liquidy, so you gotta work with a sticky sludge lol.

  2. Looks like an easy and delicious recipe.How many brownies does this recipe yield? And how many calories does each brownie has?
