Sea Salt Chocolate Black Bean Brownie Bites

Happy Saturday! I know I don't usually post on the weekends, but I wanted to quick remind you all to enter my giveaway here, and to shop the Nordstrom sale before things sell out! I also just had to share this recipe I made on Thursday...

So, the other day I found a tupperware container in my fridge with an extremely questionable looking substance inside that turned out to be undrained black beans. It just so happened to be pouring rain, I was bored, I wanted chocolate (there's a shock), and I was in the mood to bake. What does one do when all of those stars align? And there are black beans in the fridge? Turn to Pinterest and whip up some black bean brownies!

I explored a ton of recipes and ended up using this one as my inspiration. Because I wasn't sure how the brownies would turn out, I cut down the recipe. (That last sentence is a total lie; I only cut down the recipe because I had a small amount of beans.) I ended up making a mini batch of brownies, and once they were done and I did a little sampling, I realized they were dense and fudgy enough to be cut into small squares that still satisfied my sweet tooth! I added my own little twist and sprinkled the brownies with cinnamon and powdered sugar and sea salt on top. Ugh, they're so good.

5 tablespoons drained black beans
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 1/2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
Sea Salt

The whole process is super easy. I didn't even get out a bowl! I used our smallest food processor and it worked perfectly.

1. Preheat your oven to 350 and drain your black beans
2. Add beans, coconut oil, and honey to food processor; blend until smooth
3. Add cocoa powder and vanilla; blend until smooth
4. Add egg; blend until smooth (obviously)
5. Bake for 11-13 minutes on parchment paper on a pan until the brownies have cracked at the top and a toothpick comes out clean
6. When you take out the brownies, dust lightly with cinnamon and a good amount of sea salt. Let the brownies cool before cutting!

  2. So glad you posted the recipe! These look so good and so simple- the last recipe I used for black bean brownies yielded yummy brownies, but it had a lot of ingredients. Def trying these soon!
