Black Bean Brownies

Black Bean Brownies

Yes, you heard it right – black beans as the star ingredient in this unexpectedly delicious dessert that will leave you craving more. But we didn’t use just any black beans – we used SIMPLi Regenerative Organic Certified® Black Beans to ensure that they satisfy not only your taste buds, but also for your planet.

Why Black Beans?

Black beans are an incredible source of plant-based protein, fiber, and essential nutrients. Incorporating them into desserts not only adds a rich and fudgy texture but also boosts their nutritional value. As we embrace sustainable living, making conscious choices about the ingredients we use is essential, and black beans fit the bill perfectly.



  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F and grease an 8x8-inch baking pan with SIMPLi Olive Oil Blend or line it with parchment paper.

  1. In a food processor or high-powered blender, combine the black beans, oats, cocoa powder, oil, maple syrup (or honey), vanilla extract, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt. Blend until you have a smooth and creamy batter.

  1. Stir in half of the chocolate chips into the batter.

  1. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan, spreading it evenly.

  1. Sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips (or chocolate sprinkles—like we did) on top.

  1. Bake the brownies in the preheated oven for 15-18 minutes or until the edges are set and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with moist crumbs (not wet batter).

  1. Remove the brownies from the oven and let them cool in the pan for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.

Next time you're craving a sweet treat, remember that sustainability and indulgence can go hand in hand—whip up a batch of SIMPLi Regenerative Organic Certified® Black Bean brownies and savor the guilt-free pleasure of knowing you're doing your part for the environment while enjoying a delicious dessert. Happy baking!
