High Fiber Vegan Brownies

40 Minutes • Servings: About 16 Squares
Black bean brownies, really? Yes! You will get all the good fibers and not even a hint of beany flavor. This is the best black bean brownies recipe and it’s gluten-free thanks to the Dilettoso Choc-o-lotta mix, dairy-free and has no refined sugar.

What you need

  • 1/2 Cup Choc-o-lotta Dilettoso Mix
  • 1/4 Cup Almond Milk
  • 1 1/2 Cups Black Beans (1 15-oz can, drained and rinsed very well!)
  • 1/4 Cup Maple syrup (Sub with Honey or Agave)
  • 1/4 Cup Melted Ghee or Oil of Choice
  • 1/2 Cup Chocolate Chips
  • Toppings (Optional): Extra Chocolate Chips, Pecans, and Vanilla Ice-cream

How to do it

  1. SET oven temperature to 350 degrees F and line an 8×8-inch baking pan (or similar-size pan) with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. MAKE sure you have drained and rinsed the black beans very well.
  3. USE a blender or food processor to mix the black beans with the almond milk, oil of choice and maple syrup, until you reach a smooth batter.
  4. ADD the Dilettoso Choc-o-lotta gluten-free mix to the blender and process for about 30 seconds.
  5. FOLD in chocolate chips and crushed pecans (nuts are optional, but do not skip the chocolate chips!) , then gently stir using a spatula. Do not process.
  6. TRANSFER batter to your parchment-lined baking dish and spread into an even layer using a spoon or rubber spatula. Top with chocolate chips and pecans (or walnuts).
  7. BAKE on the center rack for 30 minutes, at 350 F. The brownie edges should appear slightly dry and a toothpick inserted into the center should come out mostly clean.
  8. REMOVE from oven and let cool in the pan for at least 20 minutes, before slicing it.
  9. ENJOY these delicious and healthy brownies on their own or elevate their flavor even further with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
