  • 1 15 oz can Black Beans (almost 2 cups) rinsed
  • 4 tablespoon Just Egg
  • 2 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon Sea Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • ¼ cup Coconut oil
  • ¼ cup Maple Syrup
  • ¼ cup Sugar
  • cup Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • ½ cup Cocoa Powder


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Grease a standard brownie pan with a small bit of coconut oil. Thoroughly rinse your black beans under cold water in a strainer until the water stops bubbling.
  • In a high-speed blender blend all of your ingredients except for your toppings. Blend until smooth, stopping to scrape the sides down as needed, about 3 min.
    1 15 oz can Black Beans, 4 tablespoon Just Egg, 2 teaspoon Vanilla, 1 teaspoon Sea Salt, 1 teaspoon Baking Powder, ¼ cup Coconut oil, ¼ cup Maple Syrup, ¼ cup Sugar, ½ cup Cocoa Powder
  • Pour the brownie batter into the pan and gently tap the sides to ensure even spreading. Top the brownie batter with chocolate chips (or other toppings). Bake for 25-30 minutes.
    ⅓ cup Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • Remove from oven let sit for a couple of minutes, sprinkle sea salt on top and cut into 9 squares.

Pups Notes

  • Depending on the ability of your blender/food processor you may need to blend for longer and scrape the sides more often. 
  • If you don't have access to Just Egg you can sub for any other vegan egg substitute. Use the equivalent of 2 eggs.
