Black Bean Fudge Brownies – Vegan – Gluten Free – Low Fat

Black Bean Fudge Brownies - Vegan - Gluten Free - Low Fat Rich Bitch Cooking Blog

These are as much fudge as they are brownies. And they’re a dessert really all of their own. Fudge & Brownie is more of a reference. I’ve made these a million times. I have made these too dark (a lot more chocolate to sweetener ratio) but even then I got my pleasure centers lighting up. I’ve made these with dates as the only sweetener but I find good ol high fructose agave syrup to be my jam, it is the easiest to work with. I’m pretty shitty at baking so trust your intuition when you’re giving a go at these. Less liquid, do not make the batter runny. These are not chocolate cupcakes so doesn’t expect fluffy, pillowy awesomeness. These are somewhat gooey…oh I want some. Since they’re low calorie and pretty much just beans garnished with baking spices you can eat these as a meal.

  1. Blend a can of rinsed black beans with the following
  2. 4 TB cacao/chocolate powder
  3. 2 TB saturated fat (coconut oil, palm oil, vegan butter, etc)
  4. 4 TB sweetener
  5. (maybe a tiny amount of water to ensure gooey-ness. optional, I’ve made it with and without)
  6. (another maybe is 1 ts of baking soda. I’ve used it & not used it)
  7. Pour in cupcake liner and bake at 375 and check them after 15 minutes. These will not become solid but will firm up in the fridge. Do a toothpick test to see if the water has baked out it them or not.
