SimplyFit Brownie Recipe

healthy eating recipes Jan 24, 2020

This new brownie recipe is decadent and delicious – and it also happens to be vegan, gluten-free, AND packed with fiber!

AND it’s super simple and easy to throw together. 

Note: I highly recommend using a food processor because the batter is thick and can be hard to stir. If you want to make these vegan, be sure to use vegan chocolate chips. 

Vegan Black Bean Brownies

  • 1 15-oz can (250 g) black beans, rinsed & drained
  • 2 tbsp raw cacao powder
  • ½ cup (40 g) gluten-free quick oats
  • ½ tsp Himalayan salt
  • ½ cup (125 g) pure maple syrup or honey
  • ⅓ cup (80 g) nut butter (almond or PB work great)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ⅔ cup (140 g) chocolate chips
  • Coconut oil (for greasing the pan)

Preheat your oven to 350ºF (175ºC). Prepare an 8x8-inch (20x20 cm) pan by greasing it with coconut oil.

Place all of the ingredients EXCEPT CHIPS in a food processor. Blend until completely smooth. Stir in the chips.

Scrape mixture into your prepared pan and place in the oven. Bake for 18-20 minutes before removing. Let sit for 10-15 minutes before cutting into 9 squares.

These are so delish. If you keep them in the fridge they will stay nice & fudgy.
