Black Bean Brownies | Katie Quinn

Katie Quinn takes a whole new, quirky approach to and adds in both black and oats. They’re gluten free and you can’t taste the black beans at all! Less guilt, but just as much ooey gooey chocolatey goodness.

1 1/2 cups black beans (that’s one 15-oz can), drained and rinsed
2 tbsp cocoa
1/2 cup quick oats (or regular oats will work, too)
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup maple syrup
2 tbsp sugar
1/4 cup coconut or vegetable oil
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking
2/3 cup chocolate chips


Preheat to 350F. Combine all ingredients except chips in a processor (Katie used a Vitamix blender), and blend until completely smooth. Stir in the chips, then pour into a greased pan.

Katie sprinkled extra chocolate chips over the top, because there’s no such thing as too much chocolate. Cook the black bean 15-20 minutes, then let cool. (Or be like me and take a bite right away–they’ll just be mushy but still awesomely delicious).

You can place them in the fridge overnight and they will firm up nicely.

Follow us! We don’t bite…unless you’re made of food 😉

    Protein from brownies? I can dig it :-)

  15. Abigail Jimenez on January 8, 2016: (Reply)

    other than rinsing the beans, these look yummy!

  16. Kevin Lopez on January 8, 2016: (Reply)

    Can I use applesauce instead of oil? I’m a low fat vegan

  17. tabuleirodecoco on January 8, 2016: (Reply)

    what about the oats? usually they have gluten, don’t they? but really
    interesting recipe anyway

  18. connie liu on January 8, 2016: (Reply)

    Nice marketing skills….

  19. The Organized Author on January 8, 2016: (Reply)

    I can’t wait to try this! I’m always looking for new things to make with
    black beans.

  20. Rumi on January 8, 2016: (Reply)

    I just tried this. It’s SO yummy omg #idie

  21. thedeadmonky on January 8, 2016: (Reply)

    Still 200 calories per brownie and plenty of sugar from the syrup. Might as
    well splurge on the good stuff

  22. That Is My Prerogative on January 8, 2016: (Reply)

    One of life’s biggest questions, how’s Katie not obese?!

  23. THunderJElly666 on January 9, 2016: (Reply)

    This sounds great but it looks like literal shit with a “corn stuffing”

  24. Eliza Sofa_Spoons on January 9, 2016: (Reply)

    this looks crazy good! I’m going to try it tomorrow!

  25. Renata B on January 9, 2016: (Reply)

    did anybody make it? share your experience, plz!

  26. Nyssa Sweet on January 9, 2016: (Reply)

    Can you use oat flour

  27. Bones McCoy on January 9, 2016: (Reply)

    add avocado chocolate frosting in to it, and its awesome.

  28. Haley Green on January 9, 2016: (Reply)

    Enough of this Katie Quinn chick. I like the recipe but the personality
    that comes along with it just makes me want to scream. I’m sure she’s a
    nice person but hosting doesn’t seem like her path, at least if I’m the one

  29. Lissette Langdon on January 9, 2016: (Reply)

    drain the can of Beans or no?

  30. FitAnge S on January 9, 2016: (Reply)

    Those look great, did you spray your baking dish first? because you didn’t
    mention if you did or didn’t , Im assuming you did

  31. petster13 on January 9, 2016: (Reply)

    If you’re going to use someone’s recipe in a video at least credit them.

  32. Vacheli Iyer on January 9, 2016: (Reply)

    “Whole new quirky approach?” This recipe is copied! Give credit where it’s
    due dammit. Unsubscribed.

  33. Ecto Babble on January 9, 2016: (Reply)

    Her personality is so contagious! I love it – also YAY! I’ve been waiting
    for this version of vegan brownies!!

  35. Zuzanna Stogowska on January 9, 2016: (Reply)

    I recommend to check if your beans are salted or not. In my country they
    usually are in brine. Hou will have to wash them and soak a little bit

  36. vradcke on January 9, 2016: (Reply)

    Nice job.

  37. weeeeee111 on January 9, 2016: (Reply)

    You really should quote where you got the recipe from, it’s clearly not
    yours and really turns people off you and your channel. Disappointed. You
    should also rinse the black beans if they’re canned.

  38. GladiatorQueen on January 9, 2016: (Reply)

    Anything I can use instead of black beans?

  39. Firoza on January 9, 2016: (Reply)

    Black bean brownies are my favorite thing to make for my friends, they’re
    the honestly the best fudgy brownies and they are not bad for them! It
    changes their views on vegan food as well, plus these are so good they
    don’t even notice they are black bean and vegan until you tell them!

  40. Laura Biscaro on January 9, 2016: (Reply)

    I love this brownie!! I made it a while ago and it was gone in minutes,
    everyone loved it! You can’t taste the beans at all, and the texture is
    awesome! A pinch of cinnamon in there is good too ;)

  41. almagh firah on January 9, 2016: (Reply)

    this brownies is easier than the original brownies

  42. modestmoose83 on January 9, 2016: (Reply)

    Haha, my wife made black bean brownies a few years ago and her brother
    texted us when they were in the kitchen and said “yay! brownies! can I have
    one?”, before we could even answer the text, he texted back “these brownies
    taste like beans.” In fairness, they really did taste like beans. they
    looked amazing though.

  43. Shirelle Weetman-Jones on January 9, 2016: (Reply)

    Just made them. So delicious. Thank you.

  44. Aya Amena on January 9, 2016: (Reply)

    Ahh, I need to try this!!

  45. Ann Le {Anneorshine} on January 9, 2016: (Reply)

    I’ve tried Zucchini brownies before which were yummy but now I need to try
    this!!! :)

  46. Caroline De Meyer on January 9, 2016: (Reply)

    OMG… They are delicious!!!

  47. DiscoToothpaste on January 9, 2016: (Reply)

    I don’t like her. But the black bean brownies are good, I’ll give her that.

    @Tastemade and Katie Quinn you should really credit chocolatecoveredkatie
    because this recipe is EXACTLY copied from her website.

  51. Red Curtis on January 10, 2016: (Reply)

    It looks so fudgy! ?

  52. Peter on January 10, 2016: (Reply)

    Gluten free…. Has oats….. not sure if she knows what gluten is.

  53. hanaerina on January 10, 2016: (Reply)

    I’ve made black bean brownies before with different recipe and loved it.
    Well, it was actually red bean brownies because I couldn’t find canned
    black beans and cooking black beans was too much of a hassle so I used
    canned red beans instead. It turned out delicious nonetheless. This recipe
    looks great too.

  54. Alexis B on January 10, 2016: (Reply)

    I have all the ingredients except for coconut oil.. I was wondering if I
    could substitute avocado for it like in avocado chocolate pudding??

  55. Julia Regan on January 10, 2016: (Reply)

    I hardly ever comment on YouTube videos, but I had to this time….made
    these today and they were PHENOMENAL. 

  56. Anaare Sabz on January 11, 2016: (Reply)

    Thank you but i made it before in my channel…check it out! ;)

  57. Rebecca Sanders on January 11, 2016: (Reply)

    I just made this subbing shredded coconut flakes for chocolate chips
    because that’s what I had on hand and it is like a German chocolate
    brownie, yum!

    I will try this without adding Mable syrup

  63. Danielle Keane on January 17, 2016: (Reply)

    Are there other tinned beans that would work?
