Recipe by: Gina Burgess


  • 1 400g tin black beans – drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup medjool dates (if they’re quite dry then just soak in boiling water for 10 mins, then drain)
  • 1/2 cup cocoa/cacao powder
  • 2 scoops of USN Plant Protein
  • 1 tbsp smooth nut butter of choice
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 3 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Splash almond milk/plant milk of choice


  1. Preheat the oven to 180° C and roughly line a 9×9″ brownie tin with baking paper and grease using coconut oil.
  2. Place all the ingredients in a food processor and process on high for a couple of minutes – until a consistently smooth batter forms. Pulse again if there’s any bits/lumps left.
  3. Spoon this into the lined brownie tin and smooth over with a spatula.
  4. Bake for 15-20 minutes, then leave to cool in the tray for at least 20 minutes. Then, slice into 9 squares. For best results, keep in an airtight container in the fridge.
