  • 1 fruit without skin and seed Avocados, raw, California
  • 15 oz Canned Black Beans, Reduced Sodium
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp Almond Butter, Creamy, Lightly Toasted Unsweetened & Salt Free
  • 3 Large Eggs, Grade A
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp Kosher Salt
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder


1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease muffin tin.
2 Place avocado in food processor and process until completely smooth. Then add black beans, melted coconut oil, and almond butter to food processor and blend until smooth.
3 Add eggs, maple syrup, and vanilla extract back to the bowl with black beans. Process until combined. Add baking soda, salt, and cocoa powder and process until just combined.
4 If desired, add dark chocolate chips or nuts and stir to incorporate.
5 Spoon about 1-2 tablespoons of brownie batter into each cup of the muffin pan.
6 Bake for 12 minutes, until tops of brownie bites start to look dry.
7 Allow brownies to cool in the muffin pan for 10 minutes. Gently run a thin, sharp knife around the edge of each brownie bite to loosen, then carefully lift each brownie bite of the cup.
8 For extra flavor, top with dark chocolate chips, cacao nibs, carob chips or sliced almonds.
