Ooey, gooey, fudgey chocolate brownies created to satisfy your sweet tooth and provide you with about 4g of fibre per serving!

Heads up! You will need a powerful blender* or preferably a food processor to make this recipe! 

PREP TIME: 20 minutes
COOK TIME: 30 minutes
TOTAL TIME: 1 hour 20 minutes


  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 can black beans (19oz, 540ml – rinsed and drained)
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • salt (to sprinkle on top)
  • toppings (optional): chocolate chips, pecans, crushed walnuts


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (176 C)
  2. Gently melt the chocolate bar with the coconut oil in a pan on the stove
  3. Once the chocolate and coconut oil are fully melted, transfer the mixture into the food processor jar and toss everything in this order below:
  4. Add in the sugar
  5. Add in the eggs (make sure the batter isn’t warm or else it’ll start cooking the eggs!😋)
  6. Add in the cocoa powder
  7. Lastly, add in the rinsed and drained black beans
  8. Puree – about 3 minutes – scraping down sides as needed until it is pretty smooth and almost thick like chocolate frosting
  9. Grease a 9×9 brownie pan with olive or coconut oil spray and evenly distribute the batter into the pan and smooth the top down with a spoon or spatula
  10. Sprinkle with salt and toppings of choice and gently press the toppings down into the batter
  11. Bake for 30 minutes, until the top is dry and the edges start to pull away from the sides
  12. Remove from oven and let cool for 30 minutes before slicing into squares and removing from pan. They are very fudgey!
  13. Store leftovers in an airtight glass tupperware in the refrigerator up to one week.

*If you use a blender, the mixture may be slightly too heavy to blend (these brownies are pretty fudgey so don’t say I didn’t warn you😋). You’ll likely need to divide the mixture and blend each portion separately then combine together manually.
