Black Bean Brownies

  • recipe image cover





These healthy brownies are one of our favorite go to desserts. Several of our friends were surprised to learn that the main ingredient in these tasty little treats is black beans.


Preheat oven to 350. Combine all the ingredients in a good food processor or a high powered blender until it is completely smooth. Pour the mixture in to a 8X8 pan over parchment paper. We love using silicone baking bar mould from Epicure instead of using the pan. Cook the brownies for 15-18 minutes. Let them cool for 10 minutes before cutting.

Hint: Here is the picture of the Epicure bar mould
