Little Bite Fudgy Black Bean Brownie


  • ¼ cup avocado
  • ½ cup chocolate chips, melted
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup*
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 can (~15 oz) black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup whole wheat flour
  • Rainbow sprinkles, optional, for topping


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line or spray a 24-cup mini-muffin tin.
  2. In a microwave safe bowl, heat chocolate chips in 15 second intervals. Mix between heating until smooth.
  3. In the bowl of the food processor, combine avocado and melted chocolate chips until combined. Add in remaining ingredients except flour, and mix until well combined.
  4. Pulse in flour until just barely absorbed.
  5. Fill muffin tin with approximately 1 Tbsp in each cup. Top with sprinkles if desired. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Allow to cool before eating.
