It’s the first day of fall and it’s cold :(:(:(.
But on the bright side, it’s kinda sunny, so I’m not going to get all humdrum and everything…yet.
And, on the brighter side, when it gets cold, I bake. A lot.
So, to ease into all the warm, tummy rubbing goodness of all things baked, let’s start by making something relatively good for you.
These brownies (or brownie bites) are gluten free, high in protein and have good fat. Best of all, it comes together in no time. Got 5 minutes? Make some brownies!
1 (15oz) can of black beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 c sugar
2 large eggs
1/3 c coconut butter, melted (or you can use regular butter)
1/2 c cocoa powder
2 tsp vanilla
pinch of salt
1/2 c chocolate chips
1/2 c walnuts
I found this pan on sale at Loblaws and it is so great because the bottoms are removable and whatever you are baking just pop out from the bottom (excellent for making mini cheesecakes!)
