Black Bean Brownies Recipe No Sugar

Searching for black bean sugar free brownie recipes?  We have a delicious black bean brownies recipe no sugar to share, yum! 

I was craving brownies on Saturday and decided I would experiment in the kitchen.  I mean why not?  Sometimes if you want something, you just have to try... 

Black bean date brownies

I had black beans and dates and wondered how they would be together?  I have had black bean brownies before and they were pretty good.  The thing I was not so sure of was throwing in dates... but that did not deter me from giving it a try.  I am staying with my no sugar added recipes because sugar is terrible for your body.  


  1. 1 15 oz can black beans drained 
  2. 1 8 oz package pitted dates
  3. 1/2 c cocoa
  4. 1 T olive oil
  5. 1 apple peeled and cored
  6. 1 t vanilla
  7. 1/2 t baking soda
  8. 1/2 t sea salt
  9. 2 eggs
  10. 1/2 c dark chocolate chips

I got out my Vitamix and decided that may be the best to use with the dates.  I dumped the package of dates in the Vitamix along with the  black beans.  I let it do it's magic...

Then I added in the cocoa, olive oil, and apple.  I put the lid back on and let it continue to do the magic it does. 

If you have never used a Vitamix, you would be amazed at all of the recipes you can make with it.  Soups, shakes, mixed drinks, cookie dough, ice cream, the list goes on and on.  I love that I can take basic ingredients and it mixes them all together until you have a smooth consistency.  

Do you know I could have thrown in the entire apple and it would have be ok too?  I just prefer the idea of knowing I peeled and cored the apple.

Lastly, I added in the vanilla, baking soda, sea salt, and eggs.  Put the lid back on and mixed all of the ingredients together.

Let me tell you, that batter was smooth... I do not think I have ever seen a batter so smooth to be honest.  

I used my handy spurtle and poured the batter into the greased Wilton cake pan.  I sprinkled dark chocolate chips on the top and placed into the oven for 28 minutes at 350 degrees.

You know they say to follow a recipe when you bake?  What if you do not have a recipe to follow?  I tend to make things up as I go and see if things work.  I will say these brownies were quite tasty and so moist!

I enjoy trying my hand at making baked goods while not using flour or white table sugar.  I also enjoy working with fruits, almond flour, and now black beans.  I am so glad I gave blogging a shot so I am pushed outside my comfort zone.

I tend to not be the most outgoing person in the world... but shy people have a lot to say too.  Writing is my outlet in getting what I have to say out to others.  

Over the years I have had many very outgoing friends.  Funny how opposites attract.  Mr. Vintage?  He is a shy soul like myself, we work well together in most everything we do.  Just two old souls working together to see this English cottage at her best.

When I photograph recipes in the kitchen, I get a lot of questions about our backsplash.  You can read about it to see how we made over 1980 tiles to better suit our tastes.  Can you believe we only spent $15 on the whole project.  We did have a few items on hand, but $15 is amazing when you are talking about making over an entire backsplash!
