Ingredients & Directions

Recipe Ingredients


Yield: 1 Brownie (9 Servings)
Needed Kitchenware: Mixing bowls, 8x8 baking dish, parchment paper
  • 15 ounces cooked black beans (or 1 can/box)
  • ½ cup almond butter
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ¼ cup banana flour
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ cup chocolate chips
Recipe Directions


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Combine the black beans and almond butter in a mixing bowl and mash together until thoroughly combined.
  • Add maple syrup, coconut oil, and vanilla to this mixture and combine well. Set aside.
  • Combine the banana flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a separate bowl.
  • Mix the dry and wet ingredients together now and then add the chocolate chips and stir them in until just combined.
  • Place batter into a parchment lined 8x8 baking dish and bake for 28-30 minutes.

You can substitute the banana flour for your favorite gluten-free flour. I used my hands to mash the beans and almond butter together but you can certainly use a potato masher instead. If you're making your beans from dried, you will want to use a ½ heaping cup of dried black beans to end up with 15 ounces of beans.
