Decadent Black Bean Brownies

Hi beautiful souls!

I was just looking through the recipe section of my blog, and I think I’ve realised that I really do have an #obsession with brownies 🙂

One of the many, many benefits that have come with transitioning into a vegan lifestyle 3 years ago is that I have become so much more creative in the kitchen. I have already made so many different versions of brownies, and the variations are truly endless!

Today’s fluffy and moist brownies are unique to my other recipes in that the main ingredient is black beans.

Black beans are an amazing source of plant based protein, full of fibre and a great food source for maintaining healthy bones because of its high calcium content. I personally love eating black beans whole in my nourish bowls, or using them for baking like this recipe here!

As always, the recipe is super simple, easy, and straight forward to make, and it is also really flexible in that you can create your own substitutions.  Based on whole plant foods, naturally gluten free, oil-free and refined sugar-free, not only are these bites yummy and delicious, they are satisfying, nourishing for the mind, body and soul, and packed with the high vibrational energy your body needs to thrive to its fullest potential. If you make them for your family and friends, I’m sure they won’t last long 🙂

I hope you enjoy the brownies, and if you do give these a try, let me know by tagging me on instagram! I would love to see your creations.

Sending you so much love,

Jasmine

Decadent Black Bean Brownie Recipe
by Jasmine Lipska

Time: around 40-45 minutes
Makes: 12 small slices

Ingredients:

  • 1 can black beans, thoroughly rinsed
  • 1/2 cup rice milk (or any other plant based milk)
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • 3/4 cup oat flour
  • 1 small cucumber
  • 4 medjool dates, pitted
  • 2 tsp cacao powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  2. In a food processor, blend and combine all ingredients on high speed until well incorporated. You should reach a liquidly but slightly thick batter consistency.
  3. If it is too thick, add in a splash of water. If it is too liquidly, add in more oat flour.
  4. Pour the batter into a lined baking tin and bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean when poked inside.
  5. Remove from oven and allow to sit and cool down for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
  6. Enjoy!

Tips:

  • You can also stir in dried fruit or berries inside the batter before baking.
  • You can add toppings such as walnuts, cacao nibs, icing, etc. after baking.
