Black Bean Brownies: Vegan & Gluten-Free As Fuck

30 Mar

If you are one of those people that think brownies can only be made with certain ingredients and black beans are not one of those ingredients, then I have seven short words for you: get your head out of your ass.

Give up your misinformed food biases and make this shit because it is delicious as fuck, and sorta, kinda healthy-ish.

The Shit You’ll Need:

  • 2 flax eggs (2 tablespoons of flaxseed meal and 4 tablespoons of water)
  • 2 tablespoons of instant coffee and 6 tablespoons of hot water (This hazelnut shit is the best.)*
  • 1 15oz can (1 & 3/4 cups) of black beans (rinse and drain that shit)**
  • 4 tablespoons of melted coconut oil
  • 3/4 cup of cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup of your choice of sweetener or sugar (I used 1/4 cup of xylitol and 1/4 of VitaFiber to make this shit sugar-free)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • Toppings: nuts, coconut flakes, or chocolate chips

How to Make the Fuckin’ Brownies:

  1. Mix flaxseed meal and water in a container and put it in the fridge for a few minutes. Stir that shit again, and leave it in the fridge for a few more minutes. When it becomes thick and absorbs all the water put it in a food processor.
  2. Mix the 2 tablespoons of dried coffee and hot water to make a coffee concentrate. Put two tablespoons of the concentrate in the food processor.
  3. Place the remaining ingredients, except the toppings and remaining coffee concentrate, in the food processor and process the shit out of it.

4. The batter should be thick and a little lumpy. If you think it is too lumpy or thick, mix in another tablespoon of the coffee concentrate.

The batter will be a little lumpy, but will taste fucktacular.

5. Put some the batter in oiled up cupcake pans. I like to use mini-cupcake pans, but you can use the big ones, if you want. Don’t let a blogger tell you what to do.

6. If you use the mini-cupcake pans, you should put about a tablespoon of batter in each one. Smooth that shit out with your finger or a knife. Just make sure to use something you can lick afterwards, as we all know you are going to want to lick clean whatever you use.

7. Sprinkle your fucktacular toppings on the batter.

8. Bake that shit at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes or until it starts to move from the side of the pan. A knife inserted in the brownie won’t come out clean, but it also won’t come out with liquid shit all over it.

Notice that I couldn't wait to take a picture before I ate one of these lil' fuckers.

9. Let that shit cool and pull them from the pan.

10. Serve to awesome people that you like. Shitty people don’t get awesome brownies.

Lil' fuckin' brownie bites.

TitTips:

*Adding in the coffee gives the brownies an extra layer of flavor. Add another flavor or plain, if it pleases you.

**Sprout your shit: I usually sprout and cook the organic black beans I use in this recipe.
