Black Bean Brownies (gluten free)

 Black Bean Brownie

I have made black bean brownies before, the last time I followed a recipe that was using a box mix for brownies and substituting the oil and water with black beans, which turned out ok. I wanted to try some from scratch that were also gluten free for my friend Jenn that its gluten intolerant. I merged a few together to create this recipe, which is good for a small serving – it made one loaf pan instead of a full square, but it would be really easy to double. It was pretty good – especially when you factor in the fiber and protein, we ate it last night warm with a side of frozen yogurt!

Ingredients:

1 cup Rinsed and drained canned black beans
1 Egg
1tbsp Oil
¼ cup Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla
¼ Chocolate chips
¼ Walnuts

Directions:

Preheat oven at 350 degrees. Puree the black beans. Add in eggs, oil, sugar, vanilla and cocoa and blend. Once well mixed, fold in chocolate chips and nuts. Spread into a prepared pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Dust with icing sugar. Enjoy!

  1. Always wanted to try a black bean brownie. I’ve done white beans (chocolate chip cookie dough dip) and that was surprisingly good, I’ll have to give this a try 🙂
