This is another one of my richest chocolate brownie! Hubby didn't know there were kidney beans in there. He thought it was pure buttery and rich!

Ingredients (makes 12 )

  • 1 can Kidney beans (drained)
  • 1/2 cup Oats
  • 1/2 cup Honey
  • 150gm Chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup cacao powder
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts


  1. Combined all ingredients except walnuts and chocolate chips in a food processor and process until smooth.
  2. Stir in nuts and chocolate chips. Pour batter into a greased baking pan.
  3. Bake for 15 minutes on 200C in a preheated oven. Serve warm with ice cream!

  • Love the healthy bean twist.


  • I’ve tried other vegetables in cake like avocado and beetroot but this is new!


  • love this idea! I wonder if the kids will notice haha


  • Hmm .. I’m just a bit dubious about chocolate cake with kidney beans.


  • Hmmm never thought of using kidney beans in a chocolate cake


  • wow i still can’t believe that you put beans in a cake. amazing.


  • wow great recipe! thank you for the post


  • thats something different, thanks for sharing.


  • Thanks for sharing this recipe


  • Wow I bet that would make the cake very moist indeed and be a different texture. I don’t like Kidney beans on their own so might have to give this a go.


  • Kidney beans, sounds weird, might have to check that out.


  • interesting to use kidney beans in this, great idea, must try, thanks for sharing


  • Kidney beans. Thats something different.


  • certainly one way of adding to the family fibre content!


  • This recipe is great. Exactly the type of cooking I like to experiment with. My family is used to me asking “what’s the secret ingredient?” . So often, they can’t taste the super healthy addition and are amazed at what I can hide in something delicious.
