PERFECT, chewy brownies by a celebrity chef – you’ll never believe the secret ingredient

We all love a fresh batch of brownies, right? That rich, chocolatey taste and gooey texture are simply irresistible. Yum!

But what if we told you that there’s another way to take the iconic dessert to a whole new level? And all it takes is one unusual ingredient...Black beans. Yes, you read that right – black beans!

Sounds strange, we know but trust us on this one. These little legumes work wonders in the kitchen and will take your brownies to unexplored heights of deliciousness! Just ask Celebrity Chef Dan Churchill.


The 33-year-old chef recently shared his unique take on Instagram and to say that his fans were shocked is an understatement.

‘I know it sounds weird but trust me, legends. These little weapons of a bean make an epic gooey texture and bring everything together!’ he said.

‘This recipe is so good, it will shock you.’

Well, we're definitely intrigued... So without further ado, here are the ingredients you need to replicate Dan’s brownies:

1. Baking powder
2. Cacao
3. Olive Oil
4. Egg
5. Vanilla
6. Chocolate pieces
7. Black beans
8. Maple syrup

He begins by adding the maple syrup, vanilla, beans, and olive oil into a blender and mixing them together at full speed.


In a separate bowl, he combines baking powder and cacao before whisking them thoroughly. Next, he adds a flax egg into the bowl, which is made by mixing a tablespoon of flaxseed with two and a half tablespoons of water.

He pours the black bean mixture from the blender and into the bowl before folding it in gently. Don’t forget to top it all off with chocolate nibs!

The celebrity chef then transfers the batter onto a lined baking tray and pops it in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes at 180 degrees Celsius. Keep an eye on the oven or use the toothpick test to find out if the brownies are cooked perfectly!

Bon appetit! Move over, avocado brownies. This version is the new talk of the town.

Dozens of users shared mixed reactions about Dan’s secret ingredient, with one saying: 'Adding black beans seems very weird, but you have never steered me wrong.'

'Alright, I need to try this.' another declared.

'Fun fact, any box brownie mix and a can of black beans also work!' a third suggested.


'I like to use sweet potato puree too, it does the same thing.’ one more recommended.

I'm not keen on adding the beans but adding some cooked mash pumpkin will always make a moist mix of brownies and chocolate cake

I thought there was a typo, so checked the recipe online. The black beans act like flour.
