Prep time



These gooey brownie bites have a healthy twist and are perfect for when you’re craving a little chocolate! 


  • 1 (15oz) can black beans, drained and rinsed

  • 2 Tbsp almond butter

  • 3 Tbsp maple syrup

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 3 Tbsp cocoa powder

  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips

  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts

  • For the dipping chocolate
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

  • 1 tsp coconut oil


  • Place black beans, almond butter, maple syrup, vanilla, and cocoa powder in a food processor and blend until completely smooth with no visible bits of bean (should look like chocolate ganache). 
  • Transfer to a bowl and stir in the chocolate chips and walnuts. 
  • Scoop mixture into heaping tablespoons and roll into balls
    Place in the freezer for 10-15 minutes, or until firm.
  • Melt the remaining chips and coconut oil in a double boiler (or microwave) until smooth and shiny.
  • Take the prepared balls from the freezer and, using two forks, pop them one by one into the melted chocolate rolling them to cover completely – and place on a parchment cookie sheet.
  • Top with sprinkles if desired and place the balls in the fridge to set.


  • Keep stored in the fridge to prevent melting
