Black Bean Brownies - gluten free

Hello my lovies, 

For weeks my sister has been raving about the DAMY HEALTH website and these black bean brownies that she just can't get enough of. They are gluten free, full of potassium, iron, calcium and seriously satisfy your sweet tooth. These healthy treats are 5 grams of fat, & 120 calories & almost 4 grams of protein. I just love them as a pre or post work out snack.

PREP & BAKE: Pop all your ingredients accept the peanut butter into a blender or cuisinart and blend them up. Pour mixture into a square brownie pan lined with parchment paper then drop a few spoonfuls of room temperature peanut butter on top of the mixture and swirl with a toothpick. Bake for 20 - 25 minutes at 350. Let the brownies cool in the pan for a few minutes before removing. Then cut into 16 pieces. Enjoy!


  1. Very interesting! Can't say I have ever had a black bean brownie, but I am up for trying anything :)

  2. These brownies look so delicious and fudgy! I am so curious to try some black bean brownies!

  3. Ive never made black bean brownies before but recently have been hearing a lot about them! I think based on how good yours look, that I better try them out. Cant wait!

  4. Thank you Jaime for posting this recipe! I made these brownies yesterday and used some slightly warmed natural almond butter with another 2 tablespoons of maple syrup to sweeten and swirled that on top of the batter. Because there is no flour I found that they were so crumbly to cut insto squares so I highly recommend that you cool them in the fridge, then cut them and serve them right out of the fridge. They are so delicious and satisfy my cravings for sweets and chocolate and are gluten free too.

  5. They look delicious, really unusual. I will have to give them a go at the weekend! I made some super healthy gluten free brownies and they turned out really super tasty. Here is the link to the recipe :)


Thanks for your two cents. I love change!
