Black bean chocolate brownies

These beauties are unbelievably healthy! 

My friend Sarah Avigad has an awesome blog, Accidentally Crunchy, where she recounts her experiments with dairy-free and egg-free feel-good meals, and posts amazing recipes! 

This super brownie is from her post


  • 1.5 cups black beans (cooked and rinsed) or 1 can of beans [can use other types of beans with variation in flavor]
  • ½ cup brown sugar (I used coconut unprocessed sugar)*
  • 1 medium banana
  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 3 tbsp oil (I use almond or grapeseed oil)
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking powder

* Can replace up to a half of this with liquid stevia (1 drop = 1 tsp sugar).

Topping options:

  • Coconut
  • Nuts
  • Chocolate chips
  • Fruit
  • Etc.


  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  • Blend all the ingredients except the toppings
  • Pour into the muffin tray
  • Add toppings
  • Bake for 20-25 min

Serve warm with (vegan) ice cream and berries.

Enjoy clean eating!

    In Canada we do not have bags of baking powder except of the 1/2 pound size. I am sure you mean a little packet but do know how much that is in teaspoons? Maybe you could pour one out and measure for those of us who have different products. One bag = ? teaspoons. Thank you so much.
