Grain-free black bean brownies that are rich and chewy and dark and chocolaty – all the elements that comprise of a good brownie worthy of praise. These brownies make for excellent company on your table, alongside glasses of cold fresh milk.


  • 1 1/2 cups or 1 14-oz can of unsalted, cooked black beans
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon neutral vegetable cooking oil
  • 1 tablespoon milk (dairy or nut, your choice)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 deg Fahrenheit (180 deg Cel)
  2. Grease a non-stick 9 x 9-inch square baking pan (I used a glass pan) with baking spray and then line with parchment paper, leaving a 2-inch overhang on all four sides
  3. Place all the ingredients (black beans, eggs, cocoa powder, sugar, oil, milk, vanilla extract, baking powder and ground cinnamon) in the bowl of a blender and blend until as smooth as possible.
  4. Pour the blended brownie batter into the prepared pan and place pan in the middle rack of the oven.
  5. Bake for around 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  6. Allow the brownies to cool completely (about half an hour) before slicing them into squares.
