Vegan Black Bean Brownie Cannabutter Recipe [Tutorial] – Episode #2

In episode 2 of The Cannaisseur I’ll be using the cannabutter we made in episode 1 to medicate my favourite black bean brownie recipe, while dropping some knowledge on what types of foods are best for people recovering from illness.

The Cannaisseur’s Vegan, Gluten-Free Black Bean Brownie Recipe:


1 15 oz. (425 g) can (~ 1 3/4 cups) black beans, well rinsed and drained

2 large flax eggs (2 heaping Tbsp flaxseed meal + 6 Tbsp water)

1/4 cup medicated cannabis oil

3/4 cup cocoa powder (the higher quality the better)

1/4 tsp sea salt

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

heaping 1/2 cup honey (or maple syrup for the true vegans)

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

Optional toppings: Crushed nuts or shredded coconut.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (176 C).

Lightly grease a 12-slot standard size muffin pan. Make sure you’ve rinsed and thoroughly drained your black beans at this point.

Prepare flax egg by combining flax and water in the bowl of the food processor. Pulse a couple times and then let rest for a few minutes.

Add remaining ingredients (except toppings) and puree – about 3 minutes – scraping down sides as needed. You want it pretty smooth.

If the batter appears too thick, add a Tbsp or two of water and pulse again. It should be slightly less thick than chocolate frosting but nowhere close to runny.

Evenly distribute the batter into the muffin tin.

Optional: Sprinkle with crushed nuts or coconut.

Bake for 20-26 minutes or until the tops are dry and the edges start to pull away from the sides.

Remove from oven and let cool for 30 minutes before removing from pan. They will be tender, so remove gently with a fork.

Store in an airtight container for up to a few days. Refrigerate to keep longer.
