Gluten free vegan black bean brownies

Do you ever just get that craving for something rich, dense and chocolaty? Yes? Of course you do, who doesn’t! I’ve come up with this gluten-free, vegan AND low-fat recipe to satisfy all of your healthy chocolate wishes.

  • 1 cup of gluten free all purpose flour
  • 1 cup of Rude Health Oats
  • 1 cup of black beans
  • ¾ cup coconut sugar
  • ¾ cup cacao powder
  • 1tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup of aquafaba (chickpea can water)
  • ¼ cup Rude Health Almond Milk

Step 1: Measure out 1 cup of oats and blend until a floury consistency, then add to a large mixing bowl along with all of the other dry ingredients: the all purpose flour, sugar, cacao powder and baking powder.

Step 2: Next measure out 1 cup of black beans (about ¾ cup) and blend until a puree consistency

Step 3: Now this is the cool part: the aquafaba. Aquafaba is essentially the water that comes with white beans in their tin, the best results are with chickpea water, and it can act as a basic egg replacer in many vegan recipes. First drain the chickpeas and collect 1 cup of the liquid in a large bowl and use an electric whisk to whisk the liquid like you would egg whites. After about 3 minutes the consistency begins to change to look exactly like a meringue mix, full of air and holding still peaks.

Step 4: Add the beans and almond milk to the bowl of dry ingredients and then fold in the foamy aquafaba.

Step 5: Now if you like a bit of crunch or some more melty chocolate, now is the time to chuck in a handful of chocolate chips or walnuts.

Step 6: Bake at 175 degrees for about 18 minutes and enjoy!
