These Super Fudgy Flourless Black Bean Brownies are the perfect moist and chocolaty treat!Fudgy Flourless Black Bean Brownies -

I’ve been making black bean brownies for a while, and you know what’s crazy? My family and I actually prefer black bean brownies over the average brownie recipe. Seriously! These Super Fudgy Flourless Black Bean Brownies turn out super yummy and chocolaty every time and since they’re made with black beans, they contain a few nutritional benefits too.


Serves 9


  • 1 15-ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ cup quick oats
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp zero calorie sweetener
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp molasses
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • ¼ cup milk chocolate chips
  • Optional: Additional chocolate chips for presentation


Preheat oven to 350° F. Line an 8-inch-by-8-inch pan with parchment paper.

Combine all ingredients, except for the chocolate chips, in a blender or food processor. Blend until completely smooth. The batter may contain a few bits of oats, but that’s okay. They will soften while baking.

Stir in the chocolate chips, then pour into the pan. Sprinkle extra chocolate chips over the top, if desired. Cook in oven for 17 to 20 minutes or until a fork comes out clean.

Let cool at least 10 minutes before cutting them into squares.
