Black Bean Brownies | Fudgy + Delicious!

Black bean brownies dusted with coco powder strawberries and flowers

Delicious Black Bean Brownies with cacao, walnuts and a fudgy texture. These brownies are vegan, gluten-free and (be warned) a little addictive!





Garnish (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F/175C and line a 8 inch/20cm rectangle baking tin with parchment paper. Spray with cooking oil (this will help to form crispy edges).
  2. Prepare chia eggs by mixing together ground chia with 6 tablespoons of water. Allow to thicken for five minutes. 
  3. Put all remaining ingredients into a high powered blender (besides the walnuts) and blend until well mixed and beans are puréed. Scrap down the sides. Add a little bit of plant milk if you find the mixture is too thick (don’t add more than 2 to 3 tablespoons of plant milk).
  4. Add the walnut pieces to the black bean brownie batter and mix well with a wooden spoon.
  5. Spoon black bean brownie batter into the prepared baking tin.
  6. Bake for 25 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the brownies comes out clean.
  7. Allow to cool for at least 20 minutes before cutting. Dust with cacao powder and top with fruit, if desired.
