Black Bean Peanut Butter and Jelly Brownies

These brownies are pretty gooey and very delicious with a lot of flavors going on. The beans make the batter moist and delicious. Consider serving in a bowl with a little ice cream on the side.

Black Bean Brownies

  • 2 Tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup quick oats
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 15- ouce can black beans rinsed very well and drained
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 Tablespoon softened butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup strawberry jam


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x9 inch pan lightly with oil. Add all ingredients (cocoa powder through vanilla extract) to a large blender or the bowl of a food processor and blend until a wet dough is formed. Pour batter into prepared baking pan.
  • Melt the peanut butter and butter for 1 minute in a microwave-safe bowl. Blend together well then swirl into brownie batter. Swirl 1/3 cup of jam in a different direction with a butter knife, through the peanut butter, trying not to touch the sides of the pan as the jam will burn. Bake for 33-36 minutes until a tooth pick comes out clean when inserted into a middle brownie section. Let cool (brownies are gooey), then cut and serve.
