Recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie (chocolatecoveredkatie.com)

Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
Yield 9 brownies


  • 1 can black beans
  • 3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup quick oats (for low carb, try these Keto Brownies)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup, honey, or agave
  • 1 banana (banana-free options listed above in the post)
  • 1/4 cup nut butter of choice OR oil for nut-free
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (not optional)


  • Preheat the oven to 350 F. Blend all ingredients except the chocolate chips in a food processor until completely smooth. (A blender can work if you must, but the texture and taste will be better in a food processor. I use this food processor.) Stir in chips. Smooth into a greased or parchment-lined 8x8 baking pan. If desired, add extra chocolate chips on top. Bake on the oven center rack for 15 minutes. Let cool before cutting. If they are too fudgy and gooey for your liking, you can place them in the fridge overnight, during which time they firm up even more.
