Decadent, yet nutritious, brownies, made with black beans and oats! They are vegan, gluten-free, and extra-easy to make in a muffin pan (no cutting required!)



  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 15-ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar or packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup nondairy milk
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup virgin coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • Optional: 2 to 4 tablespoons miniature semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Grease or spray 10 cups of a standard muffin tin.
  2. In a food processor, process the oat until they resemble flour, Add the drained/rinsed beans, sugar, milk, cocoa powder, coconut oil, baking powder and salt; process until smooth, stopping to scrape down bowl several times.
  3. Divide batter equally among prepared cups. If desired, sprinkle tops with chocolate chips.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 14 to 17 minutes until puffed and centers are set. Transfer to a wire rack and cool completely before removing from tin (centers will sink).


Storage: Keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 dyas or the freezer for 2 months. If you add chocolate chips on top, refrigerate before packing for eating on the run (to keep them from being to melt-y).
