Gluten-Free Black Bean Blender Brownies

Ready for a new take on brownies? Check out this awesome bean-based brownie recipe. The brownies are much lighter than typical store-bought mixes, and the beans add a substantial amount of protein. No one would ever guess that black beans are the secret ingredient…and you can’t taste them at all in the brownies.

This recipe is prepared in the blender and the result is a great cake-like brownie. Enjoy!


1 15 oz-can black beans, drained and rinsed
4 large eggs
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tbsp vanilla extract
6 tbsp butter
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp gluten free baking powder
1/2 tsp gluten free baking soda

Preparation Process

Add all the ingredients to a blender/food processor and blend until the mixture is smooth.

Line muffin tins with baking cups and pour the batter into the liners until the liners are ¾ full.

Bake at 325 degrees for 25 minutes, or until the center is completely cooked (test this by inserting a toothpick into the brownie to ensure that it is dry).
