|Holy Fudge Black Bean Brownies|
Black bean brownies, GF banana bread, cauliflower pizza, green smoothies…doesn’t the holistic food world have ENOUGH of these recipes?!
Maybe so. But the thing is, I can’t taste all of those recipes. I can’t guarantee that they are truly delectable, truly easy to make, truly healthy. And that is why I have my own small corner of the web here—to ensure that awesome recipes exist that live up to their expectations.
I WILL guarantee this black bean brownie recipe seven ways to Sunday / shout it from the mountaintops / swear on my kitten….if you like a dense, chocoholic, uber-fudgy brownie, THIS recipe is the last and only one you will need.
I’ve made black bean brownies and chickpea blondes and all sorts of bean-based treats (say that 10x fast), but nothing has ever compared to this batch. As my friend Frances of MindBodyBespoke says, they transcend this world. My brownies take you on a spiritual journey of bliss that others use mind-altering drugs to achieve. In the comfort of your kitchen.
Oh, and I have I mentioned that they are free of grains, gluten, dairy, soy and refined sugar? That’s the proverbial cherry on top of these brownies, which truly need no adornment. I wouldn't go so far as to say they’d make a bang-up breakfast, but they have enough protein to happily pass for a nourishing afternoon snack when the sweet tooth strikes.
For those who are newbies to the whole beans-in-dessert-thing, I beg you to give it a try! Beans create the most incredibly moist and creamy texture in baked goods, and if you rinse them thoroughly you will NOT taste them! They're also an amazing source of nutrients and fiber.
The last plug I must give for these brownies is how ridiculously easy they are to make! Throw everything in the food processor and you're basically done. Ok, enough chatter...go get baking and allow yourself a private moment to close your eyes and enjoy every moment of these outrageous brownies.
