  • 1 can black beans 15 oz., drained
  • ½ cup oats
  • 1 ripe banana
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil + more for oiling cake pan
  • 2 tablespoon cocoa or cacao powder
  • ½ cup vegan chocolate chips
  • Note: with the chocolate chips this recipe is really sweet enough in my opinion, and is really a great chocolate treat. The glaze made the picture pretty, but it is optional


  • 3 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon soy milk or as needed to get the thin texture for your glaze


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Put all ingredients except chocolate chips in food processor and blend until smooth.
  • Add chocolate chips and blend with spoon, not with food processor
  • Grease 7 ½" springform pan. (I use a springform pan because it releases the sides easily without sticking. If you don't have a small springform pan, use an 8" square pan, although your brownie cake will be thinner)
  • Bake for 30 minutes. After removing from oven, let cool, and release the side of the springform pan


  • Mix all glaze ingredients and heat in the microwave for 20 seconds to get the consistency that you want for your glaze. Stir again and drizzle on baked brownie cake
