Easy Gluten Free Flourless Brownies {Dairy Free}

This is an awesome recipe that was brought to me by someone through my blog. It's free of most allergens and the best part is it's gluten-free! It is very easy to make since it does not involve any flour and it uses very few ingredients. Nothing too crazy and nothing too complicated which of course means it's a recipe I love. Give it a try and I'm sure you will enjoy it!

  • 1 15 oz. can black beans, well rinsed and drained
  • 2 eggs
  • 6 Tbs. coconut oil
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder 
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ cup water (add at the very end to be able to adjust)
  • Optional toppings: crush walnuts, pecans or semisweet chocolate chips (see link)

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9x9 inch pan.
  2. In a large bowl put all ingredients EXCEPT WATER (besides walnuts or other toppings) and puree – about 3 minutes – scraping down sides as needed. You want it pretty smooth.
  3. If the batter appears too thick, add water a Tbsp or two at a time and pulse again. It should be slightly thick.
  4. Evenly distribute the batter into the pan. Optional: Sprinkle with crushed walnuts, pecans or chocolate chips.
  5. Bake for 20 - 22 minutes or until the tops are dry and the edges start to pull away from the sides.
  6. Remove from oven and let cool for 15 minutes before removing from pan. Remove with fork carefully and enjoy!

  1. I have seen black beans being used a lot lately in dessert recipes, can you taste them AT ALL?

  2. Not really! Some recipes you can taste it but in this one you don't taste it too much. It also makes it healthier which is good too!
