Black Bean Brownies by Lonneke for Vogue Nederland

This Christmas, Vogue Nederland has gathered 5 women who are food experts to share a recipe that would together make up this year’s “Vogue NL Christmas Dinner” (or in Dutch: Vogue Kerst Diner)

I was asked to submit the dessert.

Here you can find the recipe in English for the vegan Black Bean Brownies by Lonneke for Vogue Nederland:

A simple and delicious chocolate dessert that is a bit healthier due to the use of black beans. Also great as an in between snack if you need some extra energy.

  • 2 teaspoons broken flaxseeds
  • 4 tsp water
  • 10 gr raw cocoa powder
  • 40 gr oatmeal flakes

  • 1½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 130 gr chocolate chips or small pieces of chocolate of your choice

  1. Heat oven at 180C (about 350F)
  2. Mix the broken flaxseeds with the water until it becomes a jelly
  3. Mix all other products in a mixer except the chocolate chips.
  4. Afterwards mix in the chocolate chips in the dough with a spoon
  5. Pour the dough into a non stick or buttered up baking pan and preferably make a ½ inch thick layer of dough.
  6. Bake it in 15-18 minutes.
  7. Let it cool a bit and cut the brownie into squares.
  8. Pour a bit of coconut flakes on top, which will make it look a bit like Winter.
  9. For the sauce in the picture I mixed a bit of beet juice and frozen blueberries and warmed it for a second so it mixes. I poured it on the plate with a spoon in a pattern.
  10. For decoration you can use a small mint leaf.
  11. Serve with a scoop of organic ice cream, like vanilla ice cream.
  12. Enjoy!

Love, Lonneke
