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 eggs
3 tbsp. vegetable oil or applesauce
1/4 c. cocoa powder (I use Bernard Callebaut)
pinch salt
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.

Enjoy!

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…
