Fudgy Brownies

We wanted to create a brownie that was chewy, decadent and almost fudge-like. These fudgy brownies are super rich- so even just a few bites will be sure to satisfy your chocolate cravings. You'd never guess that they contain a secret ingredient: black beans!


  • 3/4 cup (cooked, unsalted) black beans
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 90g semi-sweet baker's chocolate (or chocolate chips)
  • 1/2 cup FlapJacked Buttermilk Protein Pancake Mix

  • Pre-heat oven to 350˚F.
  • Place the black beans and olive oil into a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Add the eggs, cocoa, sugar and vanilla and blend for an additional 30 seconds. Melt the chocolate and add to the blender and blend again to incorporate.
  • Place the FlapJacked mix into a bowl. Slowly pour in the blended mix and stir together well with a spatula. Pour batter into a greased 9"x9" baking pan (we coated ours with coconut oil spray) and place in the oven.
  • Bake for 18-20 minutes, until edges look dry. Cool for 30 minutes, then cut into 16 pieces. Enjoy!
