My Black Bean Brownies is an Internet recipe from a board I was on years ago. It’s now gone public, so I feel free to share with you…
Black Bean Brownies
Makes an 8″ x 8″ pan
15 1/2 oz. can black beans
3 tbsp. vegetable oil or applesauce
1/4 c. cocoa powder (I use Bernard Callebaut)
3/4 c. granulated white sugar
1 tsp. instant coffee powder
1/2 c. chocolate chips, optional
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Put all ingredients but the chips in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Pour into a lightly greased 8″ x 8″ pan. Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes. Make sure the centre is no longer glossy. This has a tendency to crack, but it still tastes good! Cool thoroughly and sprinkle with icing sugar through a sieve.
In other news… 🙂
I have a sore throat. There goes Christmas! I do not have a good immune system. It takes three to four weeks to get over a simple cold because it seems to have to go through bronchitis before it finishes. 🙁
Not happy. I will have to change my plans today and not visit my elderly neighbor. Probably won’t go carol singing tonight either. Ugh! 🙁
I will however, stay in and try to finish up the business statement. I might even get some rug hooking done. 🙂
Yesterday was productive. We went Christmas shopping and finally realized the only place we could find what we wanted was online for an exorbitant price from L.L. Bean. I ordered it anyway. It was the only place we could find that sold pajamas tall enough and skinny enough to fit Hubby, and we’re not really sure they’ll fit.
I spent time in the afternoon working on a charity project. Also had a brief nap. Then I did some baking and cooking for Christmas. I baked a pan of Black Bean Brownies and prepared a couple of Lasagnas for the freezer.
The recipe is Classic Lasagna from Anne Lindsay’s “Lighthearted Everyday Cooking”.
Hope everyone has a great day! I’ll be resting up, trying to get rid of this cold…
