Clean Eating Brownies with Peanut Butter Frosting

Clean Eating Brownies with Peanut Butter Frosting

Black Bean Brownies with Peanut Butter Frosting

So the first time I made these I served them warm to my husband and brother-in-law.  I hesitated to tell them they were “healthy” and after they took a few bits I asked how they are. The response was “good”.  So I presided to explain that the brownies they tried were actually not your typical brownie. My next experience I served the brownies to other family member not warm and also did not puree the black beans long enough.  Not as big of a hit so key is puree, puree, puree till the mixer is white in food processor.

Clean Eating Brownies with Peanut Butter Frosting


¾ cups of whole wheat flour of gluten free flour

1 teaspoon of baking powder

½ cup of coco powder

¾ cups of agave

1 table spoon vanilla extra

¾ cup of water

15 oz. can of black beans or 2 cups of frozen black beans

Frosting Ingredients:

½ cup of PB2 or all natural peanut butter

½ cup of coconut oil

½ cup of powder sugar

2 to 3 table spoons of almond milk


Pre heat oven to 350
Brush and 8x8 pan with olive oil
In a large bowl combine the first 5 ingredients and set aside.  Rinse your black beans off and drain, you will add the beans to your food process also adding in the water.  PUREE!! Then add the flour mixture and combine.  Place mixture in baking pan and making sure mixture is level in pan. Bake for 30 minutes.

Yes it’s not 100% clean, mix peanut butter, coconut oil, and powder sugar together. Add almond milk slowly until you get the right consistency. Also if you wanted double the chocolate replace the peanut butter with coco powder.

You could always throw in 1/2 cup of crushed walnut of mini chocolate chips.
