The Best Ever Organic Guilt-Free Chocolate Cake (Brownies) High Protein, Grain-free, Nut flour-free, Gluten-free

This is honestly the best recipe you will find for grain-free high protein, high fiber chocolate cake!  

No nut flours, no dairy, no mixes, nothing complicated and nothing refined, not even sugar!

You CAN have your cake and eat it too, for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks...
Why not just go on a cake diet - teehee :)

See how decadent it is:


1 14oz can of organic black beans (or your own cooked beans) drained & rinsed.
(feel free to use sprouted black beans)
3 organic free-range eggs
3 tbs organic cocoa powder (or carob)
3 tbs organic creamed honey (or 5 soft jumbo organic dates)
1 tsp aluminum-free baking soda
1 tsp organic vanilla extract or 1 scraped organic vanilla bean
The juice & zest of 1 organic lemon (or any citrus fruit) = 1/4 cup

TOPPING: 3/4 Cup of your favorite mixture of chopped organic seeds, nuts (optional), dried fruit or chocolate. (Again you can sprout or soak the seeds/nuts beforehand)

Pre-heat oven to 350
Place all the ingredients except for the topping into a food processor and blend until very smooth.  It will be the consistency of a chocolate shake. Pour the batter into a greased baking pan and  sprinkle your topping over the top and gently fork through.

Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes until a knife test comes out clean.  Let cool before cutting. 

Completely enjoy without guilt!
No guilt & honestly no gas ;)


  1. I see your excitement, and certainly this would be an awesome recipe for me (I'm gluten-free and like to minimize starchy flours), but I'm still not sure I can get over the fact that it uses beans. I'm not convinced I'll love it, but I'm really curious. The other thing - I use duck or quail eggs but can't use chicken eggs. Which do you think would work better?

    I think about other things I use, and sometimes I do make cookies with chickpea flour, and that isn't too bad, so ... maybe I'll try it?

    Thanks for the recipe!

  2. Hi Monika...Trust me I am very taste sensitive and there is absolutely no "beany taste" honestly! I was amazed! My hubby likes it better with the juice of an orange, I prefer lemon but other than that you'll never know there are beans in it. As for the eggs, my choice would be duck because they are richer but any eggs should work, just be sure you use what is equal to 3 large chicken eggs. :)

  3. These turned out fantastic! The texture is amazing, and you would never know they were made with beans. I gave some to my daughter and she loved them, she just thought they were regular brownies haha. I would suggest using honey for the those who are used to conventional brownies as I find when I use dates the sweetness seems to bake out.

    1. Please let me know if it works, I've used my flax egg in this recipe and it didn't work.

  4. Hey Colorful Canary...
    Thanks for putting this out there.
    I wanted you to know that I've shared it with my readers on my blog, with a link back to your Colorful Canary site.

  5. Thanks Brian, Glad you enjoyed the recipe I hope your readers enjoy it too :)

  6. The best vegan egg replacement is chia egg. To make one chia egg, grind one tablespoon of chia seeds, add two tablespoons of water, mix, and let sit five minutes. This chia egg recipe is scalable so you can make as many "eggs" as you need. For this brownie recipe, use three tablespoons ground chia seed and 6 tablespoons water. I will.

  7. can i do it with white beans plus cacao, as where I live there are no black beans

    1. Yes it works perfect with white beans, I make a lemon poppyseed on as well with white beans. :)
