  • One 14-ounce can low-sodium black beans rinsed and drained
  • 2 large eggs OR flax/chia eggs
  • 1/2 cup raw cacao OR cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup coconut palm sugar or turbinado sugar*
  • 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon your favorite unsweetened milk substitute
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon of freshly ground coffee OR instant coffee
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips divided


  • Preheat oven to 350°F (176°C). Grease a non-stick 9 by 9-inch square baking pan with non-stick spray and line with parchment paper, leaving a 2-inch overhang on all sides.
  • Place black beans, eggs (regular or flax/chia), cocoa powder, sugar, oil, milk, balsamic vinegar, baking soda, baking powder and coffee in your blender's container.
  • For Vitamix: Blend at SPEED 5 until smooth, about one minute.
  • For Blendtec Use the BATTERS cycle.
  • Add half the chocolate chips and PULSE** four or five times to incorporate into the mixture.
  • Pour the brownie batter into the prepared pan. Sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips evenly over the top of the brownies.
  • Bake the brownies until a toothpick comes out clean, about 30 to 32 minutes.*** Allow the brownies to cool completely before slicing into squares.
  • All done! Enjoy!! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments! :) Tag @BlenderBabes & #BlenderBabes


* Tested with both sugars - both good! Coconut palm sugar was a touch less sweet.
** If your Vitamix model does not have a pulse feature, with the power on HIGH - quickly turn the machine on and off to equal one PULSE.
*** You can also use an 8 x 8 pan as our recipe tester did, and she baked it for 45 minutes.
