It's true, you didn't misread the title of this post! Brownies that use garbanzo beans and are actually relatively healthy! A student and friend, Kathy G, made these brownies over the weekend and they were spectacular. I hope you enjoy them as much as we did, and thanks Kathy!
Best Ever Brownies
Preheat oven 350 degrees
1 and 1/2 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
15oz. can garbanzo beans (drained & rinsed)
2T coffee powder (optional)
2T canola (or vegetable) oil
1/2 c brown sugar
1/2 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
1/2 c chopped nuts (walnuts or pecans optional)
Melt the chocolate. Combine eggs, coffee powder and beans in food processor until very smooth. Add remaining ingredients - oil, vanilla, sugar, baking powder and salt, process until well blended.
Add melted chocolate and process briefly to mix, add nuts (if using).
Place batter in greased 9 in. square baking pan. Bake 350 for 35 to 40 min.
Kathy used Hazelnut Nutella as a frosting. Super yum!
Enjoy the best darn brownies ever!
Today is the first day of the rest of your life!
