Finally, chocolate makes an appearance on this blog and a leading role at that. Chocolate makes everything better wouldn’t you agree?
How about chocolate and beans? Doesn’t sound too appealing does it huh?
But this certainly looks appealing doesn’t it?
You my friends are looking at chocolate black bean brownie mix. And it is delicious. And chocolate-y. So lick that spoon, trust us its worth it 😉
(And it’s Gluten Free!)
Chocolate Black Bean Brownies
Adapted from Healthy Heddleston
1 Can of black beans drained
1/2 Cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 cup cocoa
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
Pinch of salt
1/2 cup chocolate chips…or as much as you desire 😀
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Rinse and drain can of black beans
Puree black beans in a food processor until smooth (we used a blender)
Add all other ingredients in a food processor except chocolate chips
Fold in chocolate chips by hand
Pour batter into a pie plate or a pan
Bake for 30-35 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean
Seriously if you want to try a “healthier” brownie recipe or if you know someone who is gluten free make these for them.
Who wouldn’t absolutely love you for this?
Dipped in milk these taste wonderful as well. Or dress them up and have a little fun with how amazingly chocolately these are.
Last week we went on a mini peanut butter spree and this week we feel in the chocolate mood. I foresee more chocolate in our future!
Enjoy these tasty gems!
Until Next time,
