I know the thought of black beans in a dessert is probably disgusting, but these black bean brownie muffins will 100% change your mind. All of the other ingredients completely cover up the taste of the black beans in the brownies, and the black beans actually provide a nice texture for the brownie muffins.

These black bean brownie muffins are 100% vegan. They can also be made gluten-free as long as you use gluten-free oats. They are also incredibly easy to make. You just blend all of the ingredients together, minus the vegan chocolate chips, in a food processor. Then you stir in the vegan chocolate chips. Add the batter to a muffin tin, and cook for 15-18 minutes. Voila! You have a delicious dessert that tastes great and is much healthier than most desserts out there.

Note: You can also make these vegan black bean brownies in a regular brownie pan, I like using the muffin tin, so you don’t have to worry about cutting it later. I also found this brownie pan that already has the brownies in individual slices.
