These fudgy chocolate Lima bean brownies eliminate flour and eggs by using a can of butter beans (lima beans).  Warm and right out of the oven, these are perfection with every bite. Plus the beans add a well-rounded source of nutrition with a boost of fiber, protein, iron and more!

Chocolate Butter Bean Brownies - no flour, no eggs! Fudgy, chewy, delicious and EASY to make with simple ingredients you have!You will not believe how good brownies made with lima beans (butter beans) can be!  Seriously, people, these brownies are SO fudgy, chocolaty and oh-so-satisfying to your sweet tooth.  It’s amazing that they’re made with beans and NO flour and NO eggs.  The texture is perfect and they keep for days for you to graze.

You’ve seen black bean brownies.  I have a recipe I like for them, but it’s important to use good chocolate chips when making them or they turn out bitter tasting.  These butter bean brownies are a different story.  The butter beans have a more creamy and buttery taste than the black beans, which automatically contributes a better flavor.

Fudgy, chewy, delicious and EASY to make with simple ingredients you have!These are very easy to make when you use your food processor.  I just toss all of the ingredients in, except the chocolate chips, process until smooth then stir in the chocolate chips.  Spread in the pan and bake.  That’s it!  (You can use your blender if your don’t have a food processor.)

Ben and both of our boys loved these.  I didn’t tell them they were made with Lima beans.  I’ve also served these warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.  🙂

Chocolate Butter Bean Brownies (Fudgy, Flourless and No Eggs!)

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 16 squares

Serving Size: 1 brownie

Calories: 120

Fudgy chocolate Lima bean brownies with NO flour and NO eggs. Warm and right out of the oven, these are perfection with every bite. The beans add a well-rounded source of nutrition.

  • 1 can (15.5 oz.) butter beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, more or less to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 8x8-inch baking pan with non-grease spray. (I recommend Baker's Joy.)

Place all ingredients, except the chocolate chips, into a food processor or blender. Process until completely smooth, scraping the sides of the bowl as necessary. Add the chocolate chips and pulse about 5 times.

Bake for 20-25 minutes, until edges are just browned and center is still fudgy. Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the pan for 15-20 minutes before slicing into squares. Serve immediately. Store covered at room temperature for up to 1 week.

TIP: For easy cleaner slicing, use a plastic knife.

  1. This is so creative. I am just starting to dabble in GF recipes, so I will have to give it a try. I went online and found out that my favorite chocolate chips, Ghirardelli 60% bittersweet, are gluten-free, so that’s great. Thanks!

  2. They look awesome and I love that they are gluten free too, I’ll be right over! 🙂

  3. This look so tasty! Going to try these very soon.

    I made these today, and they turned out great! I used crunchy peanut butter as I didn’t have smooth. I omitted the maple syrup as I didn’t have any, and didn’t compensate. I used vanilla pod seeds, instead of extract, and only quarter cup of choc chips (all I had) and quarter tsp salt. I used metric cups as I don’t have American cups.
    My mixture was quite firm, so I had to push it into the corners of the baking tin with my fingers. I cooked it for 25 mins, and the texture was perfect, as you said. Lovely thin crust on the top, but soft and fudgy underneath. I ate them as is, and also served them with a dollop of ricotta on top, as I didn’t have ice cream or creme fraiche. Yummm. So moreish and enjoyed by all. Not many left now! And not much to distinguish it from a traditional brownie! Thank you.
