These flourless brownies get their rich, fudgey flavor from a surprise ingredient: black beans.

1
(or 1 ¾ cups cooked, cooled black beans)
3
tablespoons
1
teaspoon
½
cup
Packed
cup

What You'll Need

  • Measuring cup
  • Measuring spoons
  • Rubber spatula
  • 9-inch square baking pan
  • Can opener
  • Colander
  • Fork

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a 9-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a colander, drain and rinse beans.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk eggs, oil and vanilla with a fork. Add beans and mash with fork until beans are barely visible (this can take 5 or more minutes of mashing). Stir sugar and cocoa, and blend with a rubber spatula until mixed. Stir in chips or nuts if using.
  4. Pour the batter into the baking pan. Bake until a knife inserted in the center of the brownies comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes. Let cool completely before cutting into 16 squares.

Chef Tips

  • If you have a blender or food processor, use it to make these brownies:
    Put the eggs, oil and vanilla in a blender or food processor, pulse to mix. Add beans and blend until pureed and smooth, 1 to 2 minutes, scraping down the sides of the blender or food processor with a rubber spatula once or twice. Add sugar and cocoa, and blend until mixed, about 1 minute. Add chips or nuts (if using), and pulse once or twice to mix. Proceed with step four.
