black bean brownie

Rich, fudgy chocolatey decadence that doesn’t taste like beans!

No, the Luvele kitchen hasn’t gone completely mad – you read correctly, we are putting black beans in a dessert. Tasting is believing! When you bite into these, all you’ll taste is rich, fudgy, chocolatey brownie heaven. 

Black bean brownies are naturally gluten and grain-free and can also be made vegan with a few small tweaks to the method.  We can’t promise you they’re low in sugar (we needed them to taste like brownies) but compared to wheat flour brownies, they score impressively high nutritionally, with loads of fiber, iron, and protein.

Best of all, these brownies are easy and quick to make. Just dump all the ingredients into your blender jug and within seconds you’ll have creamy brownie batter. The high-speed Luvele Vibe blender blades produce such a smooth batter that you’ll never see or feel a spec of bean.

Blender black bean brownies are up there with any good chocolate treat. Spoil your kids and pop a piece in their lunch box or serve it warm as a dessert at your next dinner party. It’s even more heaven served with ice-cream or homemade cultured cream.
