Fudgy Black Bean Brownies


  • 1- 15oz. can of black beans, rinsed and drained well
  • 3 TBS cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup quick oats (or regular oats pulsed in food processor for a few minutes)
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/3 cup agave nectar (light) or honey
  • 2 TBS granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips, reserve a few for the top, if desired


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray an 8"x8" baking pan with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. In a large capacity food processor (mine is 7 cups) combine the beans, cocoa powder, quick oats, salt, agave, sugar, canola oil, vanilla extract, and baking powder. Process until very well combined. (I did mine about 3 minutes or so) Stir in most of the chips and save about a TBS to sprinkle on top, if desired.
  3. Bake for 15-18 minutes. ( I baked mine for 18 minutes, until they looked dry on top and were set)
  4. Remove from oven and allow to cool at least 30-40 minutes before cutting. Cut into 12 pieces. Store any leftovers in refrigerator.
