  • 1 15.6 oz can cooked black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 C whole milk or non-dairy alternative
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 1 C coconut sugar is a little less sweet than granulated sugar, so adjust to your liking
  • 1 teaspoon instant coffee or espresso optional
  • ¾ C all-purpose flour
  • ¼ C almond flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch sea salt


  • Add drained black beans, eggs, coconut oil, milk, vanilla into a blender and blend until smooth. Add cocoa powder and blitz again until incorporated. Set aside.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, add sugar, flour, almond flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt and whisk until combined.  Pour the black bean liquid mixture over the dry ingredients and fold until just combined.
  • Preheat waffle maker to medium heat. Ladle about 1 C of batter (it will be quite thick) into the waffle maker and cook for about 5-6 minutes.
  • Gently remove waffle from waffle maker and cool on a wire rack. They will be a little delicate coming out, but will firm up slightly when cooled.
  • Serve with ice cream, whipped cream or freeze for quick breakfasts.
