Introducing the newest of freaky dessert concoctions…black bean brownies! They give new meaning to the term “special brownies!!” Impress your friends, fool your children and add a little eccentricity (and protein) to your meal!
The recipe is here (scroll down to the bottom of the article) which I tweaked beyond recognition, but I did use black beans and it tastes like brownies so I’m still going to reference the recipe. The texture is ever-so-slightly bean-ish, like if you think really, really hard about black beans while eating it. But otherwise it tastes like flourless chocolate cake. I added cardamom and sprinkled chocolate chips on top before baking which I think masked whatever lingering bean taste may have existed.
Next up…rhubarb!! (Is rhubarb supposed to smell like stinky sweat socks when you cut into it? Not feeling the rhubarb love just yet…)
