Gluten-free Black Bean Brownie Bites


I’m a big believer in having your cake and eating it too.  I love healthy food that doesn’t taste so darn healthy.  These flourless black bean brownies are fudgy, low in sugar and decadent, all while providing fiber, iron, antioxidants and magnesium.  IN A BROWNIE, PEOPLE!

I am blessed to have girlfriends who plan amazing get-togethers on the regular, all I have to do is show up with a dessert like this (and wine) and we’re all set.  These make the perfect indulgent, yet guilt-free treat.  (adapted from the Minimalist Baker vegan recipe)


2 eggs

1 15 oz. can rinsed & drained black beans

3 tbs. melted coconut oil

3/4 cup cocoa powder (I used Ghiradelli sweetened)

1/4 cup raw sugar

1 tsp. vanilla

1 1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. kosher salt

Mix above ingredients in a food processor until smooth.  Should be the consistency of cake batter.  Spoon into mini-muffin tins with liner.

I topped with

1/8 cup chopped raw cashews

mixed with

1 tbs. cacao nibs

but you could top them with whatever nut combo you fancy.


Bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes.  Voila!  Healthy brownies.  🙂
