Black Bean Brownies – A Delicious Ninja Blender Recipe

Thanks for sharing!

Mix up a batch of  soft & fudgy black bean brownies with this quick & easy Ninja Blender Recipe.

I never even dreamed of using my Ninja blender to make baked goods until I discovered an Old Fashioned Apple Cookie recipe.

And, just yesterday, I found another way to use it – Black Bean Brownies.

My Ninja Blender (this one is similar to ours – affiliate link) was a wonderful Christmas gift (we gave ourselves, I believe) a few years ago, and I love it. It’s powerful enough to whir through ice cubes to make yummy smoothies – and it made this Black Bean Brownie recipe like a charm!

Additional tips for this Ninja Blender Black Bean Brownie recipe:

  • I just treated myself to a new baking pan and this was the first recipe I’ve tried it on. It worked amazing! This professional 8 x 8 inch pan is made so the corners are nice and square – making the brownies all have sharp corners. I love how uniform each piece is! It also has a nifty non-stick base, and they came out of the pan like a dream.
  • I’m usually super impatient when it comes to cutting brownies, but this time I waited until they were completely cool before slicing. Turns out, that really helps! In fact, I put them in the freezer for about 15 minutes after they had cooled completely. Then I warmed up my largest chef’s knife in hot water and dried it off between each slice. It worked like a charm. The warm knife easily sliced its way through the brownie, and melted the chocolate chips along the way so it came out nice and neat.
