Description

Fudgy, flourless, gluten-free brownies are a decadent dessert with a sneaky secret. No one will ever guess they are filled with black beans.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 15-ounce can black beans, no salt added, rinsed and drained well
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter, melted, plus more for the baking dish
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons gluten-free vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup coconut palm sugar or granulated sugar 
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350˚F. Butter an 8-inch-square baking pan and set aside.
  2. Place black beans, eggs, melted butter, cocoa powder, salt, vanilla, and sugar in the bowl of a food processor. Blend until smooth. Remove the blade and gently stir in chocolate chips and nuts if using.
  3. Pour into prepared pan, using a spatula to spread evenly.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes, or until just set in the middle. Let cool completely in the pan before cutting into squares.
