Healthy Protein snack: My Favourite Black Bean Brownie Recipe!

Today I wanted to share one of my favourite recipes with you.

This one is for Black Bean Brownies. I have tried many black bean brownie recipes and this one is my favourite. It's not only really easy to make but it also tastes great! It also doesn't require any rare ingredients that you wouldn't necessarily have at home.

I like to have protein snacks on hand and I prefer to make them myself so I can control what's in them and even more importantly, what is not in them.  Also, it is much cheaper than buying a processed snack at the store. These are super high in fiber and protein and not too high in sugar, you can also control the amount of sugar and they type you use. Also, this is a no flour recipe! Hooray for less carbs!

I have a few favourite recipes on rotation right now. I make a batch whenever I get a chance and it will usually last me a few days. ( I tend to eat 2-3 square at a time!)

Here is what you will need:

Here is the latest batch. I don't usually put this many chocolate chips on them, if at all (I use 50% cocoa chips or above) but this was the first time I made a batch and forgot to put them in the mixture itself.

Ingredients list: (see how simple!?)
I would recommend using a food processor for this and you will need an 8 x 8 baking pan.
  • black beans 
  • cocoa powder 
  • quick oats 
  • salt
  • pure maple syrup, agave or honey
  • stevia 
  • coconut oil
  • pure vanilla extract
  • baking powder
  • chocolate chips 
This recipe was created by "Chocolate Covered Katie" she has some great recipes!! You should really check out some more of them. But here is this link to her amazing "No Flour, Black Bean Brownies"

Let me know if you try them.

  1. Im so trying this!
    Sounds delicious!!

    1. They are so good you wont believe you are eating beans!! I just had one now, before bed with my tea. I always use a little less honey/maple syrup and a little less chocolate chips just because I try to eat less sugar if I can. It's really quick to make too. Let me know once you make them.. I became addicted.. and whenever my father comes over he hopes I have a batch ready :D
