I made the brownies using Martina's method (squashing the beans with a masher and fork), swapped out the honey for actual sugar and I thought they were all right. I used a food processor the second go round today, used honey, and the brownies are MUCH better. The processor helps smooth the beans and oats, and it looks and tastes more like brownies. I doubt I will eat regular brownies again.

It's like a chocolate flapjack! I love it

Author RedChord ( ago)
I have everything except the beans and I'm Mexican that should be a sin 😐🤣.

Author Nonea350 ( ago)
Finally made these for the first time and OMGosh, they are so delicious!

Author Kim Jongbae ( ago)
Pro tip: if you ever need to pour out honey/syrup and oil in the same recipe, measure out the oil first if you can and then the honey! The honey slides right out, no waiting for it to drip business

Author brenda almenar ( ago)
I just made these and they are delicious ❤️❤️❤️ make sure to use the chocolate chips to get that chewey consistency.

Author LuvZWorld 2005 ( ago)
Can you use pre mashed beans? Like refried beans?

Author Cheyanne Moore ( ago)
i know this video is old, but im finally getting the ingredients tonight to make them so excited

Author J ScienceGirl ( ago)
Looks DELISH! Btw, who sings the song at the end of your video?

Author Jimin's high note in House Of Cards ( ago)
I've made these a few times now since you made this video (because they're so freakin delicious and my whole family loved them) but last time I made them I almost forgot to add the beans :D the batter just didn't look right and took me about 5 minutes before I realized I forgot the main ingredient lmao

Author LuvZWorld 2005 ( ago)
Can you use refried beans or pre mushed beans too?

Author Tika Dwityastuti ( ago)
should I cook the black beans first or not?

Author Adyren Lyn ( ago)
Those look so "Baahhhhh" good! Though I have an allergy to Coconut oil. Does anyone know what I could use as a substitute for it? I'm not Vegan but like to eat on the healthy side. Just don't want to assume and use something else and mess up the texture.

Author Ziyue Zhang ( ago)
Amazing! I have never heard of this recipe before! Thank you!!

Author Emily Pham ( ago)
Beans never looked so good.

Author BELINDA PiTTMAN ( ago)
I love them they are good

Author Oly Dear ( ago)
A 540 ml or 19 fl oz can of black beans rinsed and mushed equals a cup and a half exactly!

Author Krys_Tee ( ago)
Going to make this soon! I'll update how it turned up and what I did differently.

Author Ray Obando ( ago)
these brownies make me feel amazing, and gassy too

Author CassAngel22 ( ago)
Been wanting to make these for months and just got around to doing it. My boyfriend was helping and i think he put in abit too much cayenne pepper. I'll make sure he puts in less next time.

Author Claire Carlton ( ago)
I tried to make these twice and failed both times. I cried...

Author Rima Touyar ( ago)
Do you need the oats for this recipe?

Author Bubblepop206 ( ago)
Do you have to put in the chocolate chips?

Author little weirdo ( ago)
This is my favourite cake recipe now.
It's just so delicious.
Highly recommend for everyone sceptical about black beans.
I fed numerous sceptical people with this cake.
Everyone said that it is just delicious.
Except one guy, but he doesn't like anything, like he just hates life itself.
Anyway, the cake is DOPE

Author Crystal Nguyen ( ago)
made them and they're delicious!!!! Eating them right now :D <333

Author Crystal Nguyen ( ago)
making it rn :D

Author Bailey Powell ( ago)
could you do it with red beans knowing that they are sweet

Author DanaBonn ( ago)
I'm preparing this right now, but it turned out as a completely off consistency! It's much more liquidy than Martina's, and I used the exact same measurements. I'm realy confused :(

Author Eric Wong ( ago)
Wonder what a red bean brownie would taste like (๑>◡<๑)

Author Ashley Bryant ( ago)
Gotta say, this was the best brownie recipe I've tried to date. Thanks for sharing this recipe. Think you'll continue midnight cooking in Japan? I'd love to see what other things you have to share with your viewers with cooking. I also enjoyed the recipes that you did with your chef friend. I'm proud to be one of the many nasties who get to learn more about foreign cultures through you two.

Author Jo G ( ago)
Hi! I made these for my friend's birthday and they turned out amazing! Thank you for sharing this recipe!

Author Commander Derpchan ( ago)
I have a question! What's a good substitute for the coconut oil? My dad had a heart attack and on his list of foods he should avoid is coconut oil.

Author midorihat ( ago)
DANG MARTINAAAA! I defs just tried this and the batter is so goooooood - dat little kick of cayenne, tho! TTvTT
Currently waiting for them in the oven... :D

Author Daniela Navarro ( ago)
this is the first of your recipes that ive tried (i mean i also tried the chia seed pudding but... we don't talk about that) and it is SO GOOD i was skeptic because ive read that this kind of brownies are really gross, but i made mine with canned beans and a spoonful of refried beans, i made oat flour instead of using quick cooking oats and i added some quinoa açai dark chocolate bites i had lying around because i ran out of chocolate chips and Martina is totally right, you should taste the batter before cooking them because mine needed a bit more cocoa and honey, thank you so much! im gonna try them with beans cooked from scratch and see if they turn out better

Author Diana Beatriz ( ago)
Martina omg first of all I love this recipe I will try it this holiday and see how it goes. I have a question for you though where did you get your AMAZING shirt? It's like sailormoon fangirl gold! I love it!

Author CupOfTeaShow ( ago)
Not to be mean or nothing but it's really hard finding something in particular on your website.

Author Диана Носс ( ago)
Hi, Martina,
if i only have dry black beans, how exactly should i prepare them? Rehydrate and cook? For how long?
Thank you for sharing =)

Author Emma Reid ( ago)
I HAVE BEANS I GOTTA USE!!! i was just watching fapfap videos when i came across this video and i completely forgot i could bake with beans... HELL YEAH BROWNIES

Author Morgan Cornell ( ago)
brownie recipe video that ends at the time of 420.... coincidence?!!?

Author Cameron Flores ( ago)
I found out the hard way that two cans of beans are needed to get the one and a half cups of smooshed beans, I ended up putting more oats and almond flour in but other than that. THEY'RE DELICIOUS!!!!

Author Amulang Amulang ( ago)
Guys, what do you mean saying precook? Do you boil it or what? And how long does it take? I am a bean amateur)

Author Vanadium ( ago)
I'll have to try making these!!

Author coleslawholtzclaw ( ago)
Where did you get your shirt Martina?? I need that in my life!!

Also, trying to convince my sister we need to make these. It's a slow process but we're getting there.

Author mariana reyes ( ago)
This is my favorite recipe 🍪🍫
More recipes, please thanks 😊

Author Lugosi Dane ( ago)
Didn't you used to have a food processor, Martina? What happened to it? Or did you just decide it wasn't worth the effort for these?

Author That Weird Ass Fangirl ( ago)
Can I try them with red beans??

Author Amanda Jordan ( ago)
Just made these and erhmahgerd... So yummy!!! Thank you! I pureed all the dry ingredients together, and pureed all the wet ingredients together, then combined them. Came out super smooth and oh so chewy!~ :)

Author Seiashun ( ago)
Just coming back here to say that I make these a lot (I have a batch in the oven as we speak)! And I always double the recipe because they're so darn good haha

Author Inklingsrule.octodrule ( ago)

Author Erin Zhang ( ago)
ive been waiting to try this and I JUST MADE THESE 2HRS AGO AND THEY ARE ACTUALLY REALLY GREAT!!!!! fosho when martina says to mash the beans really well, make sure its really smooth. i was too lazy and just hand mashed. it was smooth, but could have been better since they didn't hold as well due to the chunkiness

Author Heyo Ki ( ago)

Author Ketchme17 ( ago)
I couldn't find any carob chips at my grocery store, so made these without them and they were ok (wanted to keep it vegan so I didn't want to use regular chocolate chips). Not very chocolaty or sweet. I guess that's a vital ingredient ><.

Author Max Allister ( ago)
You had me at Cayenne pepper. Ohhhh-yeah baby. Cant wait to try these.

Author healthy and vegan ( ago)
this so healthy too!

Author legzandherpiano ( ago)
This is seriously my favorite series of videos. Please make more midnight cooking. It seems that we're following the same diet--but i'm VERY new. I've made the powerballs and love them. The chocolates, pudding, and this are next.

Author Memee ( ago)
It's amazing, I was scared to try it but please don't be scared. Don't taste the beans AT ALL. I swear try it

Author mingyan ong ( ago)

Author Hye Song ( ago)
This looks like it is going to be good.

Author Chris Passmore ( ago)
I really wanna make these but I don't like the taste or texture of oats. Can I make them without oats or are those important?

Author AntWorld ( ago)
Why black beans only? I like Japanese red beans and Lima beans.

Author YGhappyvirus ( ago)
Sick and practically bedridden so I'm here watching Momma Martina cook <333

Author Kimzilla needs a hobby ( ago)
I made these for my mom before she passed away. I was so happy she loved them and I kept catching her in the fridge sneaking bites of them. thanks for the lovely memory.

Author Jamie Kim ( ago)
ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! Does not taste like black beans at all!! I edited the recipe to be vegan, only using agave as sweetener and boosted the protein value by mixing in my chocolate protein powder. Also added a tablespoon of soy milk to add moisture to the mix. This is a wonderful, guilt free dessert!

Where have I seen the little thumbs-up wiggly dance before?

Author alysabeth longoria ( ago)
I hope martina can do more cooking videos again soon. I love how casual they are♡

Author mika ( ago)
Here in Brazil, black beans are our most basic food (along with rice)... But we have it tempered with some spices, onions, garlic and SALT... So I reaaaally can't make myself think of eating beans in desserts or anything sweet. It creeps me out .___.

Author Aria Targaryen ( ago)
Do they taste good without chocolate chips too??

Author Ella Haden ( ago)
Any time you say the magic of editing you sound just like Daria 😂😂

Author iiSnarkyShark ( ago)
Added instant coffee with the cayenne pepper. o.o It was purty good.

When I make these again, I'll need to see if i can add peanut butter.

Author Laura Puleo ( ago)
Pretty cool!!! By the way the song is La La La by Otis McDonald

Author huskycold ( ago)
Martina this was AMAZINNNGGG!!! I mean not only it completely tasted like an actual brownie, but it was very very DELICIOUS!!! I loved it!!! Thank youuuuuu

Author Anna Watson ( ago)
ok, important question!!! can I use red/adzuki beans?

Author Hatake Kakashi ( ago)
omg who's making the bahasa indonesia subtitle? O.O so happy

Author Haley Fletcher ( ago)
you can so easily make this raw vegan too!! use chia seeds vs oats and add a bit more beans and freeze it instead of cooking it in the oven~ so good (:

Author Irene Iwasaka ( ago)
I wonder, could you could make these with azuki beans since they are similarly starchy?

Author Sue Zhang ( ago)
only 2 tablespoons of cocoa? did it taste very chocolatey?

Author Mariana Karnesky ( ago)
Omg, those look so good!

Author VeryAngryProjectilePotato ( ago)
Trick for honey: oiling the spoon with neutral oil like grape seed honey will slide right off 😊

Author Jula D ( ago)

(ran out of Eat Your Sushi segments lol...Thank goodness you have a plethora of other videos) so need to try these!!

Author Emily M ( ago)
Thank you so much for the recipe!! I made these last night and they were fudgy and moist. Instead of chocolate chips, I chose to finely chop a third of a chocolate bar. The chocolate melted throughout the entire brownie and made it extra gooey :)
