A tasty treat was made in the kitchen today!  I got the recipe from Happy Herbivore.


Secret ingredient is beans!

My slight variant on this recipe was:

1 can of cannelini beans, drained (I don’t do black beans)

2 ripe nanas

1/3 cup honey

1 tsp vanilla

2 tsp cinnamon

1/4 cup dark chocolate chips

1/4 cup chopped toasted walnuts

1/4 cup oat bran

2 tbsp sugar.

Blend everything except the oat bran, walnuts, and chocolate chips in a food processor until smooth.  Stir all the rest of the ingredients together in a bowl with the batter.  Pour into a 9×9 pan sprayed with nonstick spray and bake for 40 minutes in a 350 degree oven.

Very fudgy and a fairly strong banana flavor, so not super brownie-like, but really tasty and very good for you.  They pack fiber, protein and very little fat (Omega3 from walnuts)!  And there is no trace of any bean flavor at all, so don’t be afraid to try them!

    my mom used to make black bean brownies for us and somehow Id forgotten that!

    I wonder if the husband would be able to detect the beanage?

    Sorry – nanas are bananas!

    And Miz, I am not a real bean lover, and you really cannot taste them. Although if you use a strong flavored bean like black ones, you might.
