Gluten Free Black Bean Brownies

Written by Ashley C.


With food allergies and intolerances on the rise, it can be difficult to find a recipe that is both tasty and within everyone’s specific diet restrictions. This recipe has all the rich qualities of a brownie, but can also be enjoyed by any friends or family members with celiac disease or gluten intolerance.

Beans make a wonderful and original alternative to refined flours, also making these brownies more nutritious than the conventional version. They are a chewy, chocolaty way to healthfully satisfy that sweets craving.

Black Bean Brownies


  • 1 (15-1/2 ounce) can black beans (rinsed and drained)
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • 4 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Mix ingredients together in a blender/food processor until pureed.
  3. Pour into a greased 8x8-inch cake pan.
  4. Stir in some chocolate chips and nuts or leave plain.
  5. Bake for approximately 30 minutes.
  6. Let cool before cutting.
