Black Bean Brownie Recipe | Vegan Treats

This is a simple recipe for brownies that use black beans instead of flour. We chose to use black beans due to the high protein content while also providing more fibre. Don’t worry though! This recipe ensures that you get the regular taste of a chocolate, fudgy brownie.

These brownies can be topped with the usual condiments


  • 1.75 cup of blacked beans
  • 1 cup of oats
  • 1 tbsp of coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp of chia seeds
  • ½ cup of almond milk
  • 6 tbsp of cacao powder
  • Walnuts (optional)
  • 3 medjool dates or 1/3 cup of stevia
