Black Bean Brownies with Peanut Butter Glaze

IMG_3573And here’s the accompanying recipe to Saturday’s post…

Peanut butter and chocolate. A combination made in heaven.

I am always trying to find ways to unite these two ridiculously delicious ingredients, from smoothies to pancakes to the occasional banana sandwich! Considering the success of the last black bean brownies I made, I thought I would recreate the recipe. Only this time, I decided make a peanut butter glaze component to complement the gooey chocolatyness (not a word. I know)…. and voila…a new Morganic favorite was born!


Here is the original recipe for the brownies:Black Bean Brownies (Vegan/GF) Recipe

For the peanut butter glaze/frosting:


  • ¼ cup cocoa butter
  • ¼ cup unsweetened organic peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • ¼ tsp fine sea salt


  • Heat the ingredients in a small pan over low heat, whisking constantly
  • Once the cocoa butter has almost melted completely
  • Take the pan off heat and continue to whisk until the cocoa butter is melted and the mixture is smooth and a bit glossy
  • Let cool for about 10 minutes to let thicken (not in the fridge though!)
