Good afternoon, bloggies! I am so excited that I found Happy Herbivore's recipe for brownies! These are great if you're on a whole food or vegetarian diet (not diet. LIFESTYLE), or if you're just trying to eat healthy but still want to have a treat. Boy, are these a treat!
Here is my version of HH's Black Bean Brownie recipe (you can see the real version here)
1 Can of Beans (black preferred... but I used pinto and it woked just fine), drained and rinsed
2 Bananas, peeled (as ripe as possible)
1/3 C Honey (agave works too if you're vegan)
1/4 C Cocoa Powder, unsweetened
1 T Cinnamon
1/4 C Instant Oats (though I used a little bit extra to thicken the batter a bit)
Preheat the oven to 350. Spray an 8x8 pan with a little bit of oil (just to keep it from sticking). Throw all of the ingredients in the food processor:
And blend it all up!
Then, pour it into the pan and bake for 30 min, until you can stick a toothpick in the center and it comes out clean. Let cool, and cut into squares. I have been keeping mine in the fridge, though I'm not sure you HAVE to, better safe than sorry.
YUM. YUM YUM YUM! I have been eating these with a little bit of peanut butter or some smooshed raspberries on top. DOUBLE YUM. SO easy to make- give it a try! OH and I did the calorie count on these, and for my recipe it was about 100 calories per brownie if you cut it into 9 squares. Happy Baking!
