Servings 6 brownies


  • 1 400g tin black beans drained and rinsed
  • 3 medjool dates
  • 2 tbsp almond or cashew butter
  • 1 flaxseed egg (1 tbsp ground flaxseed mixed with 2.5 tbsp water and left for 10 minutes to gel up)
  • 1.5 tbsp coconut oil or vegan butter melted
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 4 tbsp maple syrup or liquid sweetener of choice
  • 5 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 65 g dark chocolate chips
  • 1-2 tbsp dairy-free milk of choice


  • Preheat the oven to 180C and grease a muffin tin lightly with oil.
  • Add all of the ingredients (apart from the chocolate chips) to a food processor or blender and pulse until a brownie batter forms.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips (preserve a few for topping).
  • Fill the muffin tin with the batter – it should make around 6 muffins. Top each one with a few more chocolate chips and place in the oven to bake for 20-23 minutes.
  • Let them cool for 15-20 minutes before carefully removing from the tin. These will keep in an airtight container for 3-4 days.
