Who appreciates a kick-booty chocolaty recipe that requires 1-bowl and minimal fuss or cleanup? We sure do, and we bet you do, too! And these 1-Bowl Crazy-Healthy Black Bean Brownies deliver on more than easiness; they’re a treat that’s arguably good for you. Plant-based, vegan, oil-free, naturally gluten-free, dairy-free deliciousness, that’s what these are! We use more than beans in this recipe; we even make use of the bean juice or aquafaba!  We think that the aquafaba plays a lead role in keeping these brownies moist!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Begin by preheating the oven to 350° Fahrenheit and line an 8 or 9-inch square baking pan or small rectangular baking dish with parchment paper. Alternately, you could also opt to use a silicone cake pan. The shape of the container doesn't matter. You can even bake your brownies in a circle-shaped cake pan if that floats your boat. Just be sure that the brownies are not too thick or you'll need to increase the baking time.
  2. In a food processor combine the beans, dates, reserved aquafaba, and lemon juice or vinegar. Once the date mixture is smooth, add in the raw cacao powder, oats, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Process just until combined. Stop to push ingredients down from the sides as needed.
  3. Spread the very thick batter into the prepared baking pan using a damp spatula and wet hands to even it out as you go. Sprinkle with pistachios and chocolate pieces, if using. Gently pat the topping down just a bit and bake for about 30 to 35 minutes.
  4. Allow your brownies to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes and then transfer to a wire rack. And once they're completely cool, slice and serve. As an added level of decadence, sprinkle your baked brownies with a few flecks of pink Himalayan sea salt - oh, my!

Notes

  • If the batter appears to be too dry, add a bit more of the reserved aquafaba.
  • When making these delicious brownies, the tasty balance of half lemon juice and half vinegar creates an inviting flavor. However, if you don't have fresh lemons on hand, then, by all means, use all vinegar.  And if you don't have any apple cider vinegar, then use all freshly squeezed lemon juice. You may switch out the type of vinegar, but do know that the nutrients and taste may then adjust a bit, too.
