Sometimes You Just Need a Brownie!

February 04, 2014 2 min read

So, as everyone who has followed my blog knows, I have Celiac Disease.  If you absolutely want to know what it is, it's an autoimmune disease that causes my body to attack itself rather than digest the gluten.  If a gluten free diet isn't followed it can cause major health issues. To be honest, I don't eat a lot of sweets and when I do it's usually something with chocolate. I don't eat a lot of sugar because of the studies doctors and scientists are doing to show that consuming massive amounts of sugar can lead to major health issues. But, every now and then I need something sweet to eat, and sometimes I just need a brownie! The problem is I can't ever find brownies that are gluten free that actually taste good. Most the time eating gluten free can be like eating cardboard, or can be out of your budget. Well, not with these lovely brownies that I am going to give you the recipe for.  They are called "black bean brownies," and they are one of my ALLLLL time favorite desserts. You can find multiple recipes online for them, but most the time they include crazy amounts of ingredients that are extremely expensive.   I found the original recipe through a website and modified them.  They don't taste like cardboard, they are moist, and best of all they are somewhat healthy for you...if you don't eat the whole pan at once.  I have calculated that they are about 100 calories per slice. (You can also add coffee to make it taste richer or to change things up!)
  • 1 can black beans, rinsed and drained (15½ oz)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup of melted butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar or 1/3 cup of honey
  • ¼ cup and 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ⅛ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Semi-sweet chocolate chips for topping (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon of instant coffee (optional.)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Add all ingredients to a blender and blend on low until all ingredients are well blended (there should not be any whole black beans in the batter!).
  3. Lightly grease an 8×8 baking dish and pour batter inside.
  4. Top with chocolate chips or nuts if desired.
  5. Bake for 25 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean after inserting in the center.
  6. Cool for 30 minutes before cutting and serving (otherwise they will fall apart).
Please enjoy!!
