These Black Bean Brownies are a fun way to try something new and make a tasty dessert for anyone in your life that’s dairy- or gluten-free!
I have been making this recipe since I was in university! It was always so fun to get my friends to guess what the secret ingredient was. At that time, it wasn’t as common to use alternative ingredients in baking, so they were quite surprised when I told them black beans made up the bulk of this brownie! If you haven’t yet tried baking with beans, I’m sure this recipe will convince you!
Along with being gluten-free (perfect for bringing to a party for guests with dietary intolerances), these black bean brownies are also protein- and fibre-packed (from the beans) and incredibly easy to whip up! All you need is:
You will also need a food processor or high-speed blender for this recipe. I prefer using a food processor (although they can be a pain to clean if you don’t have a dishwasher) because you don’t need as much liquid to get the machine going. That makes it perfect for these black bean brownies or other recipes like hummus and raspberry lemon nut bars.
This is the food processor I currently use. I have had it for at least 5 years and use it quite regularly. It’s inexpensive and works like a dream!
So whether you are preparing for a girls night in, a family dinner or a potluck with friends, these Black Bean Brownies are the perfect go-to to suit all needs! I hope you enjoy!
