Black Bean Brownies from Rocco DiSpirito

Cook time 30 mins

8 servings

From the kitchen of Rocco DiSpirito Difficulty: Easy


  • 1 1/2 cups black beans canned
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder unsweetened
  • 1 tablespoon espresso powder
  • 3/4 cup egg substitute
  • 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup low-calorie sugar-free
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream reduced fat
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter melted
  • 8 tablespoons Splenda or Truvia
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

How to Make It

  1. Cooking Directions

  2. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray an 8×8-inch glass baking dish with cooking spray.

  3. Combine the beans, cocoa powder, espresso powder, and egg substitute in the bowl of a food processor. Process until the mixture is smooth, about 2 minutes, scraping down the bowl halfway through.

  4. Add the chocolate syrup, sour cream, butter, Truvia, and vanilla. Process until all of the ingredients are combined, about 1 minute.

  5. Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish, and smooth the top with a spatula. Bake for 28 to 30 minutes, turning the dish halfway through the baking time. A toothpick inserted in the center will come out with soft batter clinging to it.

  6. Let the brownies cool completely in the baking dish on a wire rack. Then cut into 12 squares and serve. Refrigerate any leftovers.
