Chocolate Bean Brownie (WF, GF, DF, EF)

Posted on 19/10/2014 by Healthwise Clinic

This guilt free brownie has no processed sugar or butter or even chocolate (if you use carob)!! IMG 1037


  • 1 cup dates soaked in 1 cup boiling water
  • 2 cups (1 x 400g can) black beans (I used red kidney beans)
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1/2 cup carob/cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup cashew meal
  • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • Optional: 1 teaspoon fresh chilli or chilli flakes


  1. Soak the dates in boiling water for 5 minutes to soften, drain.
  2. Put all ingredients into a food processor and blend until a thick lump bounces around the machine.
  3. Chilli goes well with chocolate so add some if you like a little heat.
  4. Line a 15x25cm baking tray with baking paper and spoon in the mixture, flatten out with a spoon.
  5. Bake at 180C degrees (350F) for 30 minutes.
  6. Cut into squares using a sharp knife.

This brownie tastes great straight out of the freezer and served with blueberries and ice-cream.

It also tastes great when not cooked and just frozen in slices.
