    Oh guys… that looks… totally unappetizing…

    I know you said don’t use kidney beans or chickpeas, but what about red
    beans? I know they are fairly common to use in Asian pastries, wouldn’t
    that work too? Or are they the wrong consistency for brownies?

    Became a pescetarian a few weeks ago. And this past week, I’ve been on a
    craze of black beans (Black Bean w/ Corn Veggie burger is amazing btw).

    I soooo needed this. Thanks c:

  24. NikaSensei on May 12, 2016: (Reply)

    Trying these right now! Just waiting for them to set. Fingers crossed!

  25. coycat on May 12, 2016: (Reply)

    I just finished making these and they’re sooo good. I’ve even trying to
    find vegan replacements for some of my favorite foods and this is the
    perfect replacement for brownies! thank you so much!!

  29. RikoRisa on May 12, 2016: (Reply)

    I am so trying this out. Also, I have no idea they have flexible baking
    pans LOL you’ve inspired me to get one xD

  30. Juliette Fan on May 12, 2016: (Reply)

    I jumped with joy when I found out it was vegan

  31. officialmer on May 12, 2016: (Reply)

    You can get a can of refried black beans…probably won’t need to add salt
    (if you get a spicy can you may not have to add the ceyenne pepper) & you
    won’t need to mash them :)

  32. sugoi14 on May 12, 2016: (Reply)

    instead of adding oats, can i just add more chocolate?

  33. Adriana Barron on May 13, 2016: (Reply)

    I like how she used honey senpai as a joke and I love ouran highschool host

    oh allergi friendly for my boyfriend who is allergic to so many things.. Do
    you absolutely have to have cayenne?

  37. vivalasharma on May 13, 2016: (Reply)

    Martina Im really in love with your sailor moon shirt! Where did u get it?

  38. WrinkleinTime42 on May 13, 2016: (Reply)

    It makes me so uncomfortable for people to weird things with be as like
    this…. my family eats so many black beans usually with rice and meats and
    a good sofrito ( we’re Cuban hehe)
    But I really have to try these!! They look so weird I wanna make them and
    see how good they can be ^^

  39. Diana R on May 13, 2016: (Reply)

    I’ve made these kinds of brownies in school once, minus the chocolate. I
    didn’t like it BUT you’ve done such an awesome job presenting this that i
    may want to give this recipe a shot ^^

  40. Lily Lucas on May 13, 2016: (Reply)

    Do you know approximately how many calories it contains..? It’s a super
    healthy alternative! (And cruelty free hehe)

  41. Liana Jover on May 13, 2016: (Reply)

    Martina, where did you get that shirt?!?! Sailor Moon is LIFE!!! ^_^

  42. Kd Ritchie on May 13, 2016: (Reply)

    Yermy! I’ll be making them vegan, and been wanting to try this for s long
    time ?

  43. 123melbell on May 13, 2016: (Reply)


  44. Skyler C on May 13, 2016: (Reply)

    I believe they are gluten free too? If so, my nephew has Celiac’s disease
    and I think he’d love these over that foul boxed gluten free stuff.

    someones becoming obsessed with reversing all their footage

  46. segupengu on May 13, 2016: (Reply)

    Yep this goes into the Martina majority “easy cooking” playlist for sure!!
    Looks so yummy.

  47. Ksenia Paromova on May 13, 2016: (Reply)

    love it. for scd/aip i’d skip the oats and do a banana or nut butter

  48. Cairascuriosity on May 13, 2016: (Reply)

    My sister is vegan and she has made black bean brownies before….both her
    and my mom both LOVE it. Personally, I don’t get it. I think its just that
    the word “brownie” leads me to expect to to taste something similar to an
    actual chocolate brownie…

  49. John Doe on May 13, 2016: (Reply)

    how do ya’ll like the maple syrup you’ve found so far in Japan? i hope
    opinionated either way :3

  50. ken you not on May 13, 2016: (Reply)

    question…..after i rehydrate the beans, do i boil them or just mash them?

    +simonandmartina I was wondering what song you guys used! I love you’re
    channel btw!!

  56. Anh Bui on May 14, 2016: (Reply)

    do you have to use coconut oil or can you use different types of oil like
    canola, vegetable, etc?

  57. Shin8chi on May 14, 2016: (Reply)

    Guuuurrll you didn’t. OMG i love this !!!!! (Cries)

  58. Elin on May 14, 2016: (Reply)

    I am not sure what I did but I ACTUALLY managed to mess these up…. still
    delicious though :-)

  59. StrangeFerret on May 14, 2016: (Reply)

    Making these as I type!!! I am sooooo looking forward to them!! Instead of
    a brownie tray I put them into cupcake cups (saves cutting time 🙂 for us
    lazy people)!

    Now to not burn them because my oven runs really hot some times!!!

  60. Chubira Chu on May 14, 2016: (Reply)

    ohhh i dont have coconut oil

  61. Haven Reign on May 14, 2016: (Reply)

    Made this and it turned out perfectly! I’m trying to decrease my gluten,
    egg, and diary intake, so this came at a perfect time! Thanks so much!

  62. carterfrvr on May 14, 2016: (Reply)

    Do you have to use coconut oil? Is there a substitute?

  63. Athena Myzelle on May 14, 2016: (Reply)

    Yes yes yes recipe in reverse. I wanna try these!!!!!!! I’ve been vegan 7
    months now and these look amazing!

  64. brokentboy on May 14, 2016: (Reply)

  68. Fantasma Lua on May 14, 2016: (Reply)

    I made these brownies today and they were awesome, I gave some to my
    parents, they liked it until I told them it was made with beans, such picky
    eaters, but hey
    more for ME ^___^

  69. Shawna Jackson on May 14, 2016: (Reply)

    where did you get your sailor moon shirt?

  70. Hanh TRinh on May 14, 2016: (Reply)

    Can someone tell me the song at 3:59?

  71. Nina Spohn on May 14, 2016: (Reply)

    I love watching your midnight cooking videos. it’s so fun to watch you
    cook! 😀 because you make alot of healthier versions of not so healthy
    foods I’m really hoping this dessert trend will continue.

    ALSO please please PLEASE do a video on not so fatty Tiramisu! it’s all egg
    yolks and cream and it’s sooo not good for you and I would love to see it
    recreated in a lighter way.
    I hope this gets seen. ;-;

  72. Zeddie_Nak on May 15, 2016: (Reply)

    YAY THE MUNCHIES ARE BACK!!!!!! 😀 you do not know how much i enjoy your
    recipes ???? thanks!!

  73. Trinity cat on May 15, 2016: (Reply)

    I’ll try it sometime. I really like your shirt I wonder where I can get one
    like that

    Wow that sounds healthy! ;)

  86. hybridvenice on May 16, 2016: (Reply)

    Martina! Thank you for posting this! I found it a little too sweet but
    that’s just a personal thing. The black beans are actually quite delicious
    in this! I normally don’t enjoy brownies but I’ll be saving this recipe.

    Btw, I used a ricer for the black beans and got a silky smooth result. It
    was quite fun getting little bean noodles!

  87. Asian Invasion on May 16, 2016: (Reply)

    I just turned plant-based and I made these at midnight as per tradition!
    They were so good!

  93. Melanie V on May 17, 2016: (Reply)

    I’ve made this recipe twice now, and my batter comes out waayyy more
    liquid-y than yours for some reason, and the result is super-soft
    fall-apart brownies. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong, but I’m not

  94. MissDramaniac04 on May 17, 2016: (Reply)

    Made these for school and they were a big success with my classmates and
    teachers! Definitely will make them again :)

  95. Puja Ghotkar on May 17, 2016: (Reply)

    I’m losing my mind trying to figure out what song you use for your ending!
    Please put me out of my misery- it’s so darn catchy!

    Also I made these today and they’re so freaking delicious!

  96. EpicPandaAyuChan on May 18, 2016: (Reply)

    Can you use something other than coconut oil? Amazing video! You are
    awesome :D

  97. Kaitlin Gillespie on May 18, 2016: (Reply)

    Martina’s Midnight Cooking needs its own little theme song! I can just
    imagine how cute the cartoon would be
