Hey, Better Livin fam! I know you are here for the most delicious black bean brownie recipe ever but I wanted to do a quick introduction before changing your life with this! My name is Lucy Dunne, I am the founder of Dunnebells which is an online personal training company. I know, another fitness girl! But weight (couldn’t help myself) I am different I swear! Why? Well, to start I lost 65 lbs and believe it is important to take weight loss advice from someone who has actually lost weight! I also overcame an eating disorder and talk publicly about it instead of keeping all of my deep dark secrets to myself.

I am truly passionate about empowering women around the globe to empower themselves, Dunnebells is so much more than just another weight loss program. So, now that we got that taken care of I am super excited to share with all of you this fibre rich, protein loaded brownie recipe!

Sometimes “healthy” deserts just taste horrible. Right? When you find that sugar-free, gluten-free, dairy-free cookie recipe and the end product tastes like something long forgotten from the discounted food section you start to lose faith that your sweet tooth can be satisfied with healthy options! Think again.

These fudgy black bean brownies are my most popular recipe of 2019 and you will soon know why!


1 can black beans, drained and rinsed

1/4 cup honey

1/3 cup coconut oil melted

1 tsp vanilla

1/4 cup coconut sugar

1/4 cup cocoa powder

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

2 eggs

3/4 cup chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease any loaf pan with coconut oil.

Put everything except the eggs into the Blendtec and blend until smooth.

Add eggs and blend until just combined.

Pour into greased pan.

Sprinkle extra chocolate chips on top if desired.

Bake for 30 – 35 minutes until top cracks and skewer come out clean-ish.


TIP: If you want that fresh from the oven gooeyness, reheat for 15 seconds in the microwave before eating.
