Pumpkin Spice Black Bean Brownie [Vegan]


Cooking Time




  • 1 15 ounce can black beans
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon melted coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a small baking dish with parchment paper.
  2. In a food processor, blend the oats until a flour-like consistency is reached. Pour into a bowl and set aside. Add the beans to the food processor and blend until smooth and no chunks remain. Transfer to the bowl with the oat flour.
  3. To the beans, add the rest of the ingredients. Stir until evenly incorporated. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  4. Evenly spread brownie batter into the pan. It won't cover the whole pan, but the consistency enables you to mold it into a rectangle for about 1/2 of the baking dish. Sprinkle on a bit more chocolate chips. Bake for 25-30 min. until  the top has hardened and is firm to touch. Let cool for 10 minutes before slicing.
