  • 400 g | 14oz tin black beans drained and rinsed
  • 100 g | 3.5oz soft brown sugar
  • 3 medium eggs
  • 3 level tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder or raw cacao
  • 1 tbsp date syrup substitute with honey
  • 1 tsp gluten free baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 100 g | 3.5oz frozen red berries optional
  • icing sugar to dust optional
  • a little butter to grease the tin


  • Preheat the oven to 180C (350F). Grease a silicone muffin tin (or line with cases) or grease and line a small loaf tin with baking paper. Depending on size of muffin tin/cases you will have enough batter for 8 – ten brownies.
  • Add all the ingredients to a Vitamix or food processor and blitz until you have a smooth, fairly liquid, batter.
  • Divide between your muffin tin, filling only halfway up or pour into the prepared loaf tin. Scatter a few frozen berries over the top (they will sink into the batter slightly as the brownies bake).
  • Bake for 35 minutes or until firm on top. A skewer inserted in the centre should come out clean.
  • Leave to cool for 10 minutes or longer and then carefully turn out - they are quite fragile.
  • Dust with icing sugar and serve.
