Dark Chocolate Black Bean Brownies Recipe

Dark Chocolate Black Bean Brownies Recipe

Delicious, easy to make and healthy (really!), indulging in these brownies is a no-brainer. Black beans contain anthocyanins that have been shown to boost brain power, and the flavanols in chocolate are associated with promoting positive moods. Black beans are a great protein and fiber source at about 8 grams each per half-cup serving, so this delectable dessert can be just about as healthy as the main course!


1 cup cooked black beans
2 large eggs
4 tbsp of molasses
3 heaping tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
3 tbsp of goji berries
4 dates chopped
1/4 cup of ground walnuts
1 espresso shot, optional (could also replace with 1/4 cup of decaffeinated coffee)
1 to 3 squares organic dark chocolate (85% cocoa or higher)


Preheat the oven to 350°F In a blender combine all of the ingredients except the dark chocolate. Blend until smooth and free of any lumps. Pour the batter into a parchment lined loaf pan; it will be very liquidy. Chop the dark chocolate and spread it across the surface. Some of the chunks should fall into the batter – otherwise help some of it into the batter with a teaspoon. Bake for approximately 35 minutes, and set a side to cool completely before removing from the pan. I like to add a scoop of Greek yogurt, drizzled molasses and raspberries when serving. This loaf will keep in the fridge for up to 5 days, and it will stay moist and delicious! Enjoy.
