I love chocolate! And what is better than a brownie? Organic & vegan black bean chocolate brownies! Here is our version of this delicious organic treat, that is not too bad for you considering a large part of the brownie is made with black beans! I LOVE this brownie! And Dirk Verest makes this one for me all the time.. lucky me ;)

Love, Lonneke

A healthier version of a chocolate brownie made with black beans!
Recipe type: dessert
Serves: 4
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • 240gr of drained canned black beans cooked for an hour (keep in mind there is water added in cans, you need to take the weight without the water, a can of 400 grams is usually 240 grams of black beans)
  • 2 tbsp broken flaxseeds
  • 4 tbsp of water
  • 10 gr cocoa powder
  • 40 gr quick oats
  • ⅙ tsp salt
  • 40 gr maple syrup
  • 35 gr agave syrup
  • 20 gr coconut oil/cream
  • 20 gr cacao butter
  • 1½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 130 gr chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven 180C/350F
  2. Mix the flaxseeds first with the water and stir until the flax seeds have absorbed the water and the consistency is more solid.
  3. Add all the other products except the chocolate chips together and mix everything together in a blender to make a smooth texture.
  4. Mix in the chocolate chips. (if the chips are too big you can cut it with a knife before mixing it in)
  5. Pour in a greased baking dish of 20cm by 20cm (8 x 8 inch) and smooth out.
  6. Put in oven and bake for about 15-18 minutes.
  7. Enjoy!
You can add freeze dried organic coffee or cinnamon for a different flavor!

I used pure organic 70% cocoa chocolate for the chocolate nibs
