Wow do I have something special (and super delicious) for you today!

This may even become one of your new favorite recipes.

This new brownie recipe is decadent and delicious – and it also happens to be vegan, gluten-free, AND packed with fiber!

AND it’s super simple and easy to throw together.

 

Vegan Black Bean Brownies

1 15-oz can black beans, rinsed & drained
2 tbsp raw cacao powder
½ cup gluten-free quick oats
½ tsp Himalayan salt
½ cup pure maple syrup
⅓ cup nut butter (almond or PB work great)
2 tsp vanilla extract
½ tsp baking powder
⅔ cup chocolate chips
Coconut oil (for greasing the pan)

Preheat your oven to 350ºF. Prepare an 8×8-inch pan by greasing it with coconut oil.

Place all of the ingredients EXCEPT CHIPS in a food processor. Blend until completely smooth. Stir in the chips. (Note: I highly recommend using a food processor because the batter is thick and can be hard to stir. If you want to make these vegan, be sure to use vegan chocolate chips.)

Scrape mixture into your prepared pan and place in the oven. Bake for 18-20 minutes before removing. Let sit for 10-15 minutes before cutting into 12 brownies. Each brownie is 2 NUMs. Enjoy a glass of milk for some protein.

These are so delish. If you keep them in the fridge they will stay nice & fudgy. If you make these and plan to share them with others, I’d wait to drop the healthy ingredient info on them till AFTER they take a bite.

 

I hope you found this to be useful on your journey and thank you for reading.
