Equipment

  • Food Processor
  • 2 Mixing Bowls
  • Baking Spatula
  • Measuring Cup & Spoons
  • 8x8, 9x9, or 2 Silicone Cube Cup Baking Trays
    • These silicone trays will work best and are available on Amazon.

Ingredients

  • 2 - 15 oz Black Bean cans
  • 6 Large Eggs
  • 4 tbsp Vegetable, Canola, or Coconut Oil
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 2/3 cup Agave Nectar/Syrup
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Finely Ground or Instant Coffee (optional)
  • 1 cup Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (176 C).
2. Puree black beans in food processor into a rough paste.
3. In a large bowl, mix together the bean puree, eggs, oil, and vanilla.
4. In a separate bowl, combine cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, salt, and coffee.
5. Combine bowl with cocoa powder to bowl with bean puree, then stir in chocolate chips.
6. Grease an 8x8 or 9x9 inch pan, or silicone cube tray. Then, line baking pan with parchment paper or spray with canola oil.
7. Pour in batter and bake for 30-40 minutes, or until edges are visibly cooked and center doesn't jiggle much when shaking the pan. A toothpick may still come out a little gooey, which is fine.
8. Allow brownies to cool before cutting or removing from silicone cube tray.

Chef Laura's Pro Tip: For ultra-gooey brownies, remove brownies when the center still jiggles some. For firmer brownies, insert toothpick and remove from oven when toothpick is a little cakey, but not dried clean.
