black bean brownies

For sector specific training in the health field, my class made some health[ier] brownies & gave a charla (talk/informal presentation) about why they are better for you than regular brownies!

They taste very similar to normal brownies (I think they taste better), BUT the main ingredients in these brownies is BLACK BEANS.

Pretty legit, if I may say.


  • 1 (15.5 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup white sugar [our class used panella -- less processed sugar]
  • 1 teaspoon instant coffee (optional)
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips (optional) 
1.     Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease an 8x8 square baking dish.
2.     Combine the black beans, eggs, oil, cocoa powder, salt, vanilla extract, sugar, and instant coffee in a blender; blend until smooth; pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle the chocolate chips over the top of the mixture [pour the chocolate chips on when the brownies are almost done baking].
3.     Bake in the preheated oven until the top is dry and the edges start to pull away from the sides of the pan, about 30 minutes.
