  • 1 can organic black beans thoroughly rinsed
  • 1/2 cup all natural almond butter
  • 1 large ripe banana
  • 1/4 cup quality cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup carob nibs ground to flour consistency (see notes)
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 organic egg gently beaten
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips chopped
  • hot chili flakes optional


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees and lightly grease mini muffin pan using coconut oil cooking spray or extra virgin olive oil spray.
  • Add carob nibs to food processor or NutriBullet and blend until fine powder or flour consistency, set aside.
  • Once carob nibs are set aside, add the rinsed black beans, almond butter and banana to food processor, blend until well combined and fairly smooth (do not worry about getting it too smooth at this point).
  • In a separate small bowl, combine: cocoa, ground carob nibs, cayenne pepper and baking powder.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture in the food processor and pulse 3-4 times to gently mix.
  • Next, add in the vanilla, honey and egg, then blend until smooth consistency. The batter may be somewhat of a liquid texture.
  • Pour the batter into greased miniature muffin cups filling nearly to the top.
  • Place muffin tray in the oven and bake for approximately 18-20 minutes or until muffins have risen and toothpick can be inserted and come out clean.
  • While muffins are still warm, sprinkle tops with chopped dark chocolate chips and crushed red chili pepper (if desired!).
  • Allow muffins to cool for 5-10 minutes before removing from pan.
  • Store muffins in refrigerator for a week or so, if they last that long!
  • Enjoy! :-)


You can sub cocoa powder for carob nibs if you are not able to find carob nibs. You can typically find them at Whole Foods or Health Nutrition stores, and occasionally TJMaxx and Ross have them available.
