Power Brownies

Gluten free power brownies recipe with black beans and pecans

This power brownie recipe is absolutely fantastic and gluten-free. Guess what the secret ingredient is? Black beans!!! Isn’t that wild?

It’s made with black beans instead of flour, and they make the brownies super moist and packed with protein. Go ahead and try them, we’re certain your kids will love them too.     – Curt


1 15 oz. can black beans, undrained

3 eggs

3 T. olive oil

1/4 cup cocoa

pinch of salt

1 t. vanilla

3/4 cup sugar

1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

1/2 cup pecans



Preheat oven to 350º. Lightly grease an 8×8 baking dish. Combine black beans, eggs, oil, cocoa, salt, vanilla and sugar in a blender.  Blend until smooth (batter will be a little runny).  Pour into baking dish and sprinkle with dark chocolate chips and pecans. Bake approximately 20 minutes or until sides start to pull away and toothpick inserted comes out clean.
