A family favorite brownie made with beans. There is no flour, white/brown sugar, egg, nor butter, and my daughter and I gobble them up! How on earth could they taste so good? I think it has something to do with the pure Canadian maple syrup and sweet chocolate chips!

Love the Simple Ingredients

The ingredients are: a can of black beans, coconut oil, oats, maple syrup, cocoa, baking powder, vanilla, salt, and chocolate chips.


  • 1 1/2 cups black beans (drained and rinsed well)
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup quick oats
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • pinch uncut stevia OR 2 tbsp sugar OR increase maple syrup to 1/2 cup
  • 1/4 cup coconut
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup to 2/3 cup chocolate chips
  • optional: additional chocolate chips for topping, use white chocolate chips for a change

The Best Part

Throw everything (except the chocolate chips) into the food processor.IMG_7611


  • Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • Combine all ingredients except chips in a food processor and blend until completely smooth. Blend well.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips, then pour into a greased 8×8 pan. Optional: sprinkle extra chocolate chips over the top. 
  • Cook the black bean brownies 15-18 minutes, then let cool at least 10 minutes before slicing.
  • Makes 9-12 brownies.

And Enjoy
