Black Bean Protein Brownies: Vegan & Gluten-Free


Protein brownies made with black beans? Honestly, trust us!

This recipe is VERY simple and tastes unreal. It uses ingredients you probably have at home so give them a go!


45 grams peanut butter 
140 grams (1/3 cup) maple syrup
23 grams (1/4 cup) cocoa powder (or more if you like your brownies VERY chocolatey)
20 grams (a bit over 1 tbsp) coconut butter OR 2 tbsp more peanut butter 
1 can of drained black beans (around 230 grams)
200 – 500 grams ground almonds
115 –  125ml milk of choice

1.Chuck everything in a food processor or, using a handheld blender, blend it all until you get a thick and delicious paste (if you want to taste it, go ahead; the batter contains no eggs or flour, so worries; just don’t eat it all!)

2. Bake it in the oven at around 160 C (180F) until your knife comes out clean. Depending on the oven this can take between an hour and an hour and a half. Just keep an eye on it and take it out when you reckon it’s done.

3. Slice and, when cool, stick your brownies in the fridge inside an airtight container. The brownies are best a day or two after! But eat them whenever you fancy a bite of something delicious and packed full of nutritious goodness!
