Just Thrive Surprise Brownies

Guest recipe and blog by Sarah Mason @therootedblonde

There’s nothing better than some gooey, yummy brownies to pack on your picnic or bring to your next outdoor party!
Here’s a couple reasons why you’re going to love these brownies:

They’re super simple to make (if you’ve got a blender you can make this recipe!)...

They’re packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, healthy fats & protein…

Which will keep you satisfied & not spike your blood sugar like traditional brownies

They’re only sweetened with medjool dates & contain no flour…

They also contain a sneaky ingredient that I don’t think anyone will guess (see recipe below)

PLUS They have Just Thrive Probiotic which helps support:

  • Smooth digestion
  • Increased energy and a better mood
  • Strong immunity
  • Youthful looking, healthy skin

I honestly can’t think of a reason why you aren’t going to be obsessed with these delectable, fudgy brownies, but don’t trust me— try it for yourself! 

Just Thrive Surprise Brownies


  • 1 can black beans 
  • 1/3 cup cacao powder
  • 6 pitted medjool dates
  • 5 tbsp drippy tahini
  • 2 pasture raised eggs
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 capsule (opened) Just Thrive Probiotic 
  • cinnamon & sea salt (optional)


  1. Rinse & drain your black beans
  2. Add everything to a blender & blend until smooth consistency 
  3. Transfer to lined 8x8 baking dish
  4. OPTIONAL- mix in chocolate chips, swirl in nut butter, or top with flakey sea salt
  5. Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes 
  6. Cut into squares & enjoy!

This batter is on the thicker side so I would recommend using a high speed blender with a tamper. You can always add in a couple dashes of your milk of choice if you need to thin it out a little too!


Soak your black beans in filtered water for 10 minutes while you prep the rest of your ingredients. This simple tip will help so much if you experience gas when consuming beans.

If you want to take these brownies to the next level you can always top with some ice cream, cool whip or my personal favorite— some fresh strawberries!

Happy baking!
