Indulgently gooey BLACK BEAN BROWNIES

I totally don’t understand how come that today was the first day I made black bean brownies! And since I have fallen madly in love with them and since I WILL want to make these again I decided to write up the recipe (when it is still fresh in my head)!

I took three different recipes, combined them (based on what ingredients I had at home) and added my own twist on them and the result is… I promise you WILL love them as much as I do!

So… get ready. It’s easy and it’s OMG so good!!!



Indulgently gooey BLACK BEAN BROWNIES

And because I’m ME and everything with me needs to be easy and straightforward I use cups as a measure (as always).

You will need:

1 ½ cups of black beans (washed and rinsed thoroughly)

1/2 cup of oat flour (I blend oats myself and then use the flour for cooking)

1/2 cup of coconut milk

1/3 cup of maple syrup

1/4 cup of coconut oil

2 tbsp cocoa

2 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp baking powder

50g of dark chocolate (I used half a 95% chocolate bar)


pinch of salt

a bit of shredded coconut (for greasing the tin)


How to make it:

1) Firstly you need to get your baking tin ready to make sure that your cake doesn’t get stuck. Put a little bit of coconut oil the inside of your tin, spread it all around and then put some shredded coconut inside. Tip the coconut around to make sure that it completely coats the oil, then tip the excess coconut in a bowl.

2) Now you need to blend all the ingredients (except chocolate and raspberries). I used a hand blender but mixer would have worked much better (ours is broken now). Blend till it is super smooth.

3) Chop the dark chocolate and add it to the mix together with raspberries. Leave some raspberries and a bit of chocolate for decorating the top.

4) Pour in a baking tin and decorate with raspberries and a bit of chocolate on the top.

5) Baking time! Make sure your oven is preheated to 190C. The brownies will take 15 minutes to bake. Don’t forget that brownies need to be gooey so don’t overbake them.

6) Once baked, take it out of the oven, let it cool down for at least 10 minutes and then…

7) … “tramtadadaaaaaa” ENJOY!
