Healthy brownies

By November 9, 2015Recipes

These healthy brownies are made of … beans (I guarantee no one will ever guess)! Soak the beans prior to cooking for at least 8 hours or overnight, then rinse, bring to a boil and cook on a low heat for 45-60 minutes (otherwise follow the product instructions as cooking time may vary). You can substitute black beans with aduki beans.

Ingredients (approximately 10 mini-brownies)

  • 1 cup of cooked black beans
  • 3 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder
  • A pinch of salt
  • 25 + 25 g chopped pecans or walnuts


  1. Blend all the ingredients except 25 grams of nuts in a food processor until smooth.
  2. Add the remaining nuts. Mix well and pour into a small square container or a spring-form. Flatten using a table-knife. Cover with a kitchen film. Flatten again (using kitchen film will allow you to arrange a perfectly flat surface).
  3. Put away in the fridge for at least two hours.
  4. Before serving discard the film and cut the brownies in bites of your favourite size/
