  • 1 1/2 cup black beans, canned
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder, unsweetened
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 large egg
  • 1/2 cup flour, all-purpose
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  • Rinse beans!  Mix all ingredients together.  Pour into an 8X8 inch greased pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.
  • ( a few notes- we don’t mash the beans, but using an electric mixer till he batter is well mixed, breaks them down quite a bit.)
  • These brownies are not sweet.  If you prefer a sweeter treat, add royal icing to the top. (or peanut butter is good also!)
