Refried Fondue (Brownie Batter Bean Dip)

Refried Fondue sounds like a questionable, bubbling dip you’d find at a fusion buffet. While we love exotic mix ‘n’ mash dishes here at HHF Headquarters, this recipe does not involve nationality. It may take a leap of faith to make it, but your first scoop will quell all worries. 

Black bean brownies have been around since the earliest health food craze days. So has soy milk, believe it or not. Using refried black beans ensures you have no clumps in your fondue since they are pre-blended. Most bean brownie batters taste too bitter on their own, this chocolate-y dip is designed to be spooned like the stuff you snuck as a kid. The entire recipe is only 310 calories, so fudge away without pudging up. With plant-forward ingredients like beans, prunes, and iron-heavy cocoa powder, this dip is great for bone health!

Oil-free, nut-free, and syrup-free, but still lucious. Enjoy with cinnamon sugar tortilla chips, fresh fruit, graham crackers, or a ladle.

Refried Fondue (Brownie Batter Bean Dip)

Yield: 1 1/3 cups (4 servings or 1 bowl for a ravenous chocolate glutton.)

  • 1 cup (260g) refried black beans* (no spices added)
  • 1/4 cup (40g) soaked prunes or dates**
  • 2 tbsp (10g) cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp (5g) DUTCH cocoa powder (the super dark stuff)
  • 1-2 tbsp (15mL) soy milk, as needed
  • 1/4 tsp or 1/2 pipette of liquid stevia
  1. Puree in the order listed. A food processor is best.
  2. Taste after sufficiently blended and adjust sweetness. No need to bake or chill unless you have a desired serving temperature. Keeps for up to 2 days, covered in the fridge.

*I have not tried this with traditional pinto refried beans, but since those cans usually contain cumin and chili powder, I strongly advise against it. Refried BLACK beans are available in most grocery stores, just check for lard and the aforementioned spices.

**How to quick-soak prunes: Cover with water and microwave for 40 seconds. Let sit for a few minutes until plump and soft. Drain water and proceed with whatever you’re using them for.
