Black Bean Brownies With Honey

13 January 2013

 
Chocolate is one of those things that I don't think I'll ever be able to part with, I just wont. Lucky for me I really don't need to especially when there's so many healthy ways to incorporate it in your life. Black Bean Brownies for instance are the perfect example, they're rich, chocolatey and delicious. I originally posted this recipe a couple of years ago, but I was looking for something with a little less processing, i.e., skipping the sugar and using honey to sweeten instead. And boy am I glad, it gave the brownies a better texture, all the while making them little healthier.

And psst. in case you were wondering, these babies are gluten free.

Black Bean Brownie With Honey
1 1/2 Cups Organic Black Beans (Or One Can Rinsed)
3 Eggs
1/2 Cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
3/4-1 Cup Honey
2 Tsp. Vanilla
Pinch Of Salt
1/3 Cups Melted Butter or Coconut Oil (refined for no coconut flavor and unrefined for flavor)

Preheat Oven to 350˚
 In A Blender, Combine Beans and Eggs until Smooth...
 Pour In Bowl, add Honey, Cocoa, Vanilla, Salt, and Buter (or Coconut Oil)
 Mix Until Smooth...
 Pour in greased 9x13 Pan
 Bake 25 Minutes, Let Cool and Cut.
 Top them with Vanilla Ice Cream or Simply Enjoy on their own. 

Be careful, these babies are addicting, we've scarfed down two batches down this week.

I'm seriously going to have to try this. I was just commenting somewhere else about my excess beans that I need to cook up. Must be a bean type of weekend in the blogosphere.

I love the idea of adding black beans to brownies! Great way to be a little healthy while still having dessert :-) My roommate used to add flax seed to our brownies. It definitely gives it a different texture but they were still good!
