Kidney Bean Brownies (Vegan, High-protein)

Yield: 8
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes

Fudgy, plant-based, gluten-free, and, most importantly - incredibly delicious Kidney Bean Brownies.


  • Ingredients:
  • 250g red beans
  • 50g liquid sweetener (molasses, agave or date syrup)
  • 50g tahini
  • 10g carob powder (or cocoa powder)
  • 40g plant-based protein powder
  • 30g chocolate


    1. Wash and dry 250g of red beans, and place them in a blender, together with 50g molasses and 50g tahini. Blend until everything is smooth.
    2. Then, add the dry ingredients - the carob powder and the protein powder. Blend once again.
    3. Once everything is well combined, add 30g of chocolate and mix it up with a spoon.
    4. Transfer the mixture on a baking tray, and spread evenly.
      Bake it for about 15 minutes at 180 degrees.
    5. Once it cools down, cut in pieces, and enjoy!


- The mixture should end up quite sticky and thick, so use your hands to spread and even it out.

- Next time I will try to freeze the dough without baking it, as it really looks super good!
