Prep Notes

Everything goes into the food processor except the chocolate chips and walnuts.
Those get stirred in.


  • 1 teaspoon Coconut Oil (for coating the baking dish)
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 1/2 cups Black Beans (1 15 oz can) – drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 Avocado
  • 1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 (to 2/3) cup Coconut Sugar
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened Cocoa (or Cacao) Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/3 cup dark Chocolate Chips
  • 1/3 cup chopped Walnuts


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Coat an 8×8″ baking pan with the 1 tsp of coconut oil.
  3. Put all ingredients (except chocolate chips and walnuts) into your food processor and process until a soft batter forms.
  4. Fold in chocolate chips and chopped walnuts.
  5. Spread batter into prepared pan.
  6. Bake 25-30 minutes or until the center is set. (Use a toothpick to test it)
  7. Cool completely before slicing and serving


You can add 1 – 2 tsps of instant coffee for a mocha taste

Add 1/2 cup peanut butter or almond butter –
After the brownies are in the pan, Add little dollops of the nut butter all over the batter and swirl with a knife.

Add cinnamon to the dry ingredients to make Mexican Brownies… this also helps your body process the sugar in the chocolate chips.
