Dairy Free Digestive Support Protein Gluten Free Meal_Treats Product_clean-lean-protein-digestive-support-protein Soy Free Vegan


  • 1 can black beans (rinsed and drained)
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil (I used a avocado/coconut oil blend)
  • 1/4 cup chocolate non-dairy creamer
  • 1/3 cup sugar (if using a liquid form like syrup or honey, start with 1/4 to ensure brownie batter consistency)
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 scoop Probiotic Cacao Digestive Support Protein
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1-2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg (or vegan alternative)
  • chocolate chips

This Flourless Black Bean Brownie recipe is from our friend Courtney Peace of GF Cake. The fudge-like chocolate treats are a great go-to healthy dessert.

These brownies check all the boxes when it comes to the perfect healthy dessert that you can indulge in daily:

  • Easy to make using a blender
  • Filled with protein and fiber – thanks to the black beans AND Probiotic Cacao Digestive Support Protein
  • Naturally gluten-free — remember, these are flourless thanks to the black beans!

Although the addition of the protein powder isn’t essential, it took a healthy dessert and made it a filling snack that tastes and looks like a brownie. I love the Probiotic Cacao Digestive Support Protein because it is the perfect vegan (and soy free!) protein powder that also includes ingredients like L-glutamine and probiotics to give your tummy that extra help it deserves.
