  • 540mL can black beans drained and rinsed
  • 1 egg whole
  • cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ½ cup cocoa
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ cup salted caramel chips


  • Preheat the oven to 375F
  • Add all ingredients except the salted caramel chips into a high powered blender. I tested this recipe in my Vitamix. Blend until smooth. About 1 minute.  This likely will not work well in a regular blender. If you don't have a high powered blender such as a Vitamix or Blendtech, I would opt to use a food processor instead. 
  • Scoop the batter into your oiled silicone mold tray. You can also use a parchment lined 8X8 pan, but I have not tested it in that pan. 
  • Add a few salted caramel chips to the top of each brownie bite.
  • Bake for 15-17 minutes. Cook time will need to be adjusted if you mold is not 2 tablespoon capacity per well. Your brownie bites are done when you can insert a toothpick into the center and it comes out clean.
  • Allow the brownie bites to cool completely before removing from the mold. They are likely to fall apart easily when warm.
  • Store at room temperature in a air tight container for 3-4 days.
