Blend 1 can (540 ml) unsalted black beans until smooth. To this, add 1/4 cup vegan margarine (or coconut oil) and 1 cup sugar. Pour in half a cup almond milk into the batter. Add 1 tbsp chia seeds, 40 g cocoa powder, 60 g carob powder, 1 tsp baking powder. Bake this mixture at 350°F for about 20 minutes, or until ready. It may take a little longer to cook on the inside.

These are the same black bean brownies I like to make for my non-vegan friends and the same ones I brought to work (back when I had a J.O.B) for my co-workers and to bake sales! Wins them over every time. 😉

They can’t believe they are vegan – not to mention, healthy! (Well healthier than normal desserts anyway)

Ingredients

  • 1 can of unsalted black beans (540 ml)
  • 1/4 cup vegan margarine (I used vegan margarine or you could use coconut oil)
  • 1/2 cup almond milk (I used chocolate, but it doesn’t matter what kind)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds (not necessary, but I just added them)
  • 40 g cocoa powder (1/4 cup + 1 tbsp)
  • 60 g carob powder (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1 tsp baking powder

•Optional: Carob chips or vegan chocolate chips. I also sprinkled some vegan-friendly powdered sugar on top of these later.

*This recipe makes about 42 mini brownies or 14 larger ones.

Instructions

  1. Blend the beans until smooth.
  2. Add in butter and sugar.
  3. Add the milk and dry ingredients to the batter.
  4. Bake at 350° F for about 20 minutes or until ready (depends on how long you bake them, but usually these take a little longer to cook on the inside.)

When I was 14, I used to hate exercise but then I finally found a workout I enjoyed doing so it was easy to stay consistent. I lost 45 pounds in a few months.I also started to eat healthier and learn more, however there are a lot of myths out there that I used to believe such as certain animal products being good for you. A few years later after watching "Vegucated" I knew I couldn't go on eating animals and participating in the suffering of animals so I went vegetarian. A few months later I went vegan and it was the best decision of my life. I no longer get bloated, I have more energy and I am able to maintain my weight even though I eat a lot. Most importantly I feel peaceful inside knowing I chose consciously not to consume animals or products of them.
