These brownies are so good and are protein rich with all the black beans. If you want to make these vegan, you can substitute the eggs for flax eggs. I would highly recommend adding the chopped pecans!

1 ½ cups cooked black beans
2 flax eggs*
3 tbsp coconut oil, melted (sub butter)
¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 ½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp sea salt
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
¼ cup coconut sugar *could sub pureed dates for both coconut sugar & maple syrup
¼ cup maple syrup
½ cup semi sweet chocolate chips + more for topping
½ cup chopped pecans *optional

*Flax eggs= 1 tbsp ground flax to 2-3 tbsp water. Mix and let sit until thick, about 2 minutes

  1. Preheat oven to 325 F, lightly grease a muffin tin or 8 x 8 baking dish
  2. Pulse black beans in a food processor until smooth
  3. Add in remaining ingredients except chocolate chips and nuts if using. Puree until super smooth
  4. Pulse in chocolate chips and nuts
  5. Divide batter between muffin tin or spread in an even layer in the baking dish. Top with additional chocolate chips and bake for 15-20 minutes in muffin tin or 25-35 minutes in the baking dish.
