Main Ingredients

  • 2 cups cooked black beans
  • 3 eggs
  • ¼ cup coconut oil (melted)
  • 1 tsp vanilla Extract
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • ¾ cup cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup coconut sugar
  • ¼ cup raw honey
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 100 grams dark organic chocolate
  • ¼ cup sliced almonds



  • Preheat oven to 350ºF (177ºC) and line an 8 x 8 baking dish with baking paper. (Use a bigger dish if making more than 9 servings.)
  • Add the cooked black beans and eggs to a food processor. Turn it on and stream in the coconut oil. Let the food processor blend for about 60 seconds, or until the black beans are very smooth.
  • Add vanilla, salt, cocoa powder, coconut sugar, honey and baking powder to the black bean batter. Blend until all incorporated, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  • Add half of the chocolate to the brownie batter and pulse 5 or 6 times until it is mixed in.
  • Transfer brownie batter to the prepared baking dish and smooth into an even layer. Sprinkle remaining chocolate and sliced almonds evenly over top of the brownies.
  • Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out with just a few moist crumbs.
  • Let the brownies cool completely before transferring to the fridge for at least 4 hours before cutting into squares.

Enjoy in moderation!
