Dr Oz & Rocco Dispirito Brownie Black Bean Recipe

Dr Oz was joined by Rocco Dispirito, author of Now Eat This!, and he made a delicious sounding brownie recipe that is actually low in fat and low in calories.  A Diet Brownie Recipe?  Is it possible?  Yes!  The secret to Rocco Dispirito’s Brownie Recipe is black beans!  Here is what he demonstrated on the Doctor Oz Show:

Dr Oz: Black Bean Brownie Recipe

Ingredients:

15 oz canned black beans, rinsed and drained

1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1 tsp expresso powder

3/4 cup liquid egg substitute

3 tbsp whole wheat pastry flour

3/4 cup agave nectar

1 tbsp unsalted butter, melted

1 tsp vanilla extract

Rocco & Dr Oz Brownie Recipe

Directions:

1.  Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

2.  Spray an 8×8 baking dish with non-stick spray.

3.  Place the black beans, cocoa powder, egg substitute, espresso powder and flour in a food processor.

4.  Blend until the mixture has no lumps at all.

5.  Add the vanilla, agave and butter.

6.  Blend again until everything is fully mixed.

7.  Pour the brownie mix into the greased 8×8 pan and bake for 20 minutes.

8.  Also, make sure to turn the 8×8 baking pan halfway through.

9.  Turn the temperature down to 300 degrees and bake for another 5-8 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.  Be careful not to overcook the brownies either though!

10.  Let the brownies cool completely until they reach room temperature.

12.  Cut them into 12 squares and serve.

13.  Make sure to refrigerate any of your leftover Black Bean Brownies!

    I am going to try them tomorrow (Sunday)

     
  • Dr. Oz please do all the diabetics out here a favor and have your web people put the nutritional info in with the recipe when it prints!
    Also there is no nutritional info for the black bean brownie recipe!
    Thanks, ML

     
  • I love this recipe. I used Hazelnut Agave.
    my husband was so happy I baked for him and yes he loved them.
    I love that the main Ingredient is black beans. I am having fun with the recipies and love all the information.

    Thank you!

    if you have a word program like open office or microsoft word, you can cut and paste the recipe then print

    Diana, I created the recipe in WW PointsPlus and each brownie is 3 points.

     
  • Kristin

    There is a printer icon at the very bottom of the recipe…under “Share and Enjoy”.
    Mine are cooling, now…they small wonderful!

     
  • Laura

    I put the recipe in the WW recipe builder and it came out 1 point each for 16 servings. For 1 point they are a decent replacement for a sweet treat – but not sure i’d go to the trouble of making them regularly – lots of dishes to clean with the Food Processor and all….

    Brownies were good, but they had more of a fudge appearance than a brownie.

     
  • Alisa

    This recipe is different from the one listed in Rocco Dispirito’s book “Now Eat This”. I’ll try this one since the original from the book was horrible.

     
  • you can uuse ground oatmeal instead of flour and works great

     
  • christian

    OK maybe I have missed something but you could just jot down the recipe instead of printing it or highlight and print just the parts you need to print or copy & paste like someone else said in an earlier post.

    Second someone said it was too many dishes to clean to make them. It only uses a food processor for the entire mixing of the recipe then one 8×8 pan that equals only 2 dishes to wash??? Two dishes are too many???

    Third the internet is full of calorie counters for recipes input the info and let it figure it, not hard.

    Weight watchers has a black bean brownie recipe on their site with the nutritional info listed.

    En Costa Rica no sabemos que es líquido sustituto de huevo, ni que es néctar de agave. Por favor por que otros ingredientes se pueden cambiar o que otro nombre puede tener?. Gracias !! me encantaría poder hacer la receta

     
  • Are the beans dry or cooked?

     
  • cindy

    can you use All Purpose Gluten Free flour instead of the wheat flour? Won’t have the same nutritional value, but I have celiac disease and need to make some adjustments.

    I am looking for the exact recipe that was on the Dr. Oz program. Although this is
    the same chef, (Rocco Dispiriito) the recipe above is not the one that was prepared on the program.
    I wrote down what he said: black beans, egg white, w.w. flour, cocoa powder, butter, and vanilla. No agave nectar. Also 88 calories. 8×12 pan, bake 350 for 20 min, then lower, cut into 24 pieces. Where is that recipe?

  • Any idea how to adjust this recipe for high altitudes?

    I see a lot of people didn’t like their brownies. I have a feeling this is a more difficult recipe than it appears, at least if you make alterations, as I always do. The fact that the resuls are apparently fudgy does not rule out their being great fudgy brownies. A fudgy brownies is not my ideal either.
    The guy who cooked up the idea of chocolate refried beans was dead before he started. A toxic idea, where this recipe is concerned. I notice many canned beans use garlic etc which would go a long way to making you think of refried beans.
    I took a batch out of the oven which looks like if anything too cakie. However it may settle a little. I don’t know how much flour since I don’t measure.

     
  • Richard

    Foul Ball! They are not even fudgy–more pasty. Of course they would improve with refrigeration but I elected to take the unconventional of returning it to the oven for further cooking. I made one batch which was burnt but about as edible in the other direction from this batch. I stil believe that excellent brownies can be made with black beans.

     
  • This is better than the one in the book as that one we thought was horrible.

    This one has a different texture. It has the consistency of pumpkin pie. Very wet. I wouldn’t call it a brownie, but the flavor was good. I will try it once more but add more flour which hopefully will dry it some. I can’t eat all of it so I did put some in the freezer but not sure if it will freeze well. If it doesn’t I won’t make it again.

     
  • I decided never to make this again. The texture is not good. I’d rather eat a tiny piece of a real brownie than a big piece of this as it no way resembles a brownie.

     
  • Liquid egg substitute sounds disgusting! What is wrong with a fresh protein packet egg from a free ranging chicken?

     
  • Not so good. may make them again and add a little choc. pieces or something. If you love chocolate like I do, these are not for you!
