Brownies that are made using black bean and pumpkin puree creating a healthier option that doesn't taste healthy at all! Great for the family. Budget Friendly and gluten free.
  • 15 oz can black beans, drained & rinsed
  • 15 oz can pure pumpkin puree
  • ¾ cup cocoa powder (unsweetened)
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 tbsp strong brewed coffee (mornings leftovers)
  • 3 tbsp flaxseed meal
  • ¾ cup pure maple syrup
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp baking soda
  • 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line a 10" skilled or an 8x8 baking dish with parchment paper and spray with a little bit of nonstick spray (I used olive oil spray).
  3. Using a HIGH powered blender add your black beans, pumpkin puree and coco powder. Blend on HIGH until black beans are completely broken down and mix is combined into a fine puree.
  4. Add remaining ingredients except for chocolate chips and blend for another 30 seconds, or until completely mixed together.
  5. Pour puree mixture into your lined baking dish. Sprinkle on top with 1 cup of chocolate chips.
  6. Place in preheated oven and bake for about 40-45 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven and let cool down for an hour at room temperature. Once cooled down, cover with foil and place in fridge for an additional 1-2 hours, slice and serve.
  8. Store in fridge.
