  • 2 15 oz cans black beans (~3 cups)
  • 4 tablespoons ground flax seeds
  • 8 tablespoons water
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup agave
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tablespoons almond milk
  • 1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup walnuts, chopped


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees (180 °C).
  • Thoroughly rinse and drain the black beans. Grind the flax seeds in a food processor or use store-bought ground flax seeds. Whisk them together with 8 tablespoons of water and set aside to thicken for about 2 minutes.. Then make the batter: Combine all ingredients except the chocolate chips and the walnuts in a food processor and process until smooth (also add the soaked flax seeds).
  • Lightly grease a baking tray and pour in the batter. Add the chocolate chips and spread evenly. Sprinkle with the chopped walnuts.
  • Bake for about 40 minutes. Allow the brownies to cool down before you cut them into pieces.
