Black Bean Brownies (GLUTEN FREE? yes, please)

These are GLUTEN FREE my friends and I am so excited to try these, they are literally baking in the oven right now. Gluten free means it’s free of a wheat protein. And not to mention these brownies have loads of protein because of the black beans! I just sneaked a piece of it and it tastes AMAZING! I am also uploading to Youtube for all of you to watch. It’s like a protein bar but brownie style! Full of protein!


15oz can black beans (drained and rinsed)

4 eggs large

1/2 cup cocoa powder unsweetened

1 tablespoon vanilla

6 tablespoons of butter

1/2 tsp sea salt

1 1/2 cup brown sugar

1 tsp baking powder (check to make sure it is gluten free, some baking powders may contain gluten)

1/2 tsp baking soda (check to make sure does not contain gluten)

Preheat oven to 325 ‘ F Place baking cup liners in to muffin tin, spray with oil. In blender or food processor, place all ingredients and blend/liquify until smooth and silky. Pour batter into muffin tin 3/4 ths full. Place in oven and bake for 27 min or until center is fully cooked! Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with only a few moist crumbs.
