Every time I hear about a recipe that just sounds crazy to me, I bookmark because I must try it. My latest undertaking was the odd sounding,
Black Bean Brownies
Everyone (who hasn’t tried them)’s first thought is EW. Why ruin a brownie? But I was determined the test ‘em out. I sifted through a lot of recipes before deciding on one of the most simple versions by AllRecipes.
Now… how easy is this?! Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grab your blender.
Rinse your beans and start layering all the ingredients into the blender…
Then, blend away! Scrape the sounds… and blend again until smooth!
Poor into a greased dish. I had some fun experimenting with toppings; dark chocolate chips and walnuts.
Bake for 30 minutes, until a toothpick some out clean. They looked good… they smelled good…
And now for the true test…
Not too shabby 🙂
To me, they tasted a bit more cake like than brownie like, but I haven’t had a brownie in so long that I’m not sure it’s an accurate comparison. I will say, I would have NEVER guessed they were made with black beans! Yum 🙂
Have you ever tried a ‘special’ brownie?
