Black Bean Brownies

Black Bean Brownies

Black beans in a brownie? That’s right, your favorite dessert has turned to the dark side. Give in to the power of the pulse.


Adapted from a WholeFood’s recipe

1 (15 oz.) can of black beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 c. sugar
2 large eggs
1/3 c. butter, melted
1/4 c. cocoa
2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 c. chocolate chips
1/3 c. roughly chopped walnuts

Drain and rinse black beans as throughly as possible. Add beans and melted butter into the bowl of a food processor. Blend until smooth. Add in cocoa, vanilla and salt and blend until completely pureed. Gently stir in chocolate chips and walnuts then pour into an 8″x8″ pan sprayed with non-stick spray. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Cool completely before cutting. Unless you’d like to dig in with your hands like I did…
