  • cups black beans, drained
  • 1/3 cup cacao or cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup coconut sugar
  • ¼ cup pea protein powder
  • 4 eggs, large
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • 2 tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • tsp sea salt
  • ½ cup walnuts, chopped


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and spray 8 wells of a standard-size muffin tin with cooking spray.
  • Put all of the ingredients except the walnuts in a food processor and process until smooth. Stir in the walnuts by hand.
  • Pour the batter evenly into the greased wells of the muffin tin, filling them about two-thirds full. Bake for 22 to 25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean.
  • Remove from the oven, transfer the muffins to a cooling rack, and let cool. Serve, or store for later in the week.
