Gluten Free and Vegan Chocolate Chip Brownies
First off, if you are a follower of mine then you know I don't share many dessert recipes. Only because I don't have time for lengthy recipes. When my friend mentioned these black bean vegan brownies to me, I could not help but take it a step further and try them with gluten free brownie mix. They are marvelous! It may sound like many ingredients are needed to make a recipe with substitutes, but that is not the case here. These Vegan Gluten Free Brownies are easy to make and will have you reaching for a fork (or spoon with a dollop of vegan ice cream) in no time.
What is a good vegan dessert?
These Vegan Brownies are definitely a game changer! With minimal ingredients suchas brownie mix and a protein, they are ready within the time it takes you to pick a Netflix movie. I mean, can Netflix and chill sound any more amazing?
Can you taste the black beans?
It is not distinct at all. I can not notice a grainy or texture taste of the black beans and neither can my daughters or husband.
How long can these brownies be refrigerated?
I recommend no more than 3 days because of the black beans. In my experience, any beans in the fridge after 3 days seem to get a smell to them which really bothers my nostrils. For that reason, I recommend you stay away from keeping these in the fridge for a longer period of time.
Ingredients for Gluten Free Vegan Brownies
It's simple! A box of your favorite gluten free brownies mixed with 1 can of black beans and baked per box instructions. That's it! Pair it with some ice cream or a cold glass of milk while you enjoy the fudgy chocolate delight.

What are some of my favorite gluten free recipes?
I prefer to eat gluten free whenever possible. Some of the products I have found that are great replacements for gluten include Siete Tortillas for wraps, chips, and all things Mexican. You can find my other gluten free recipes here.
Do these brownies taste like cardboard?
I get it. It's a question we all ask ourselves when our favorites are turned healthy. However, that is not the case here. These Vegan, Gluten Free, Corn Free, etc Brownies are going to break the internet. OKAY OKAY, a little hopeful thinking, but my family is obsessed and I hope yours will be too! In fact, you will catch my kids and I making these brownies on my Instagram live often.

Trader Joe's Gluten Free Brownie Mix
I am a big Trader Joe's advocate, so it comes with no surprise that the ingredients I am about to mention are Trader Joe's affiliated. They sell a gluten free brownie mix that is delicious and ready to be mixed with black beans. However, feel free to buy alternatives at your local grocery store if that is what you find readily available or if it meets your families dietary needs.
