Healthiest Bean Brownies a.k.a Frownies!
I saw this recipe called Frownies and of course you know my association with Frownies so I thought I would share it with you.
Gluten and dairy free No junky white flour or processed white anything here!
1 low sodium, PBA free (if possible) can of chick peas (garbanzo beans)
3 large eggs
100% Cacao Unsweetened Chocolate bar
4 or 5 tbsp raw (but liquid) unprocessed honey, or more to taste
½ tsp gluten free baking powder
½ tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
*1/2 ripe banana – optional
Break up the chocolate bar into little pieces and melt in a double boiler. Rinse chickpeas well, and process in a blender with eggs, honey, and the rest of the dry ingredients sans walnuts. Once nicely blended, add in melted chocolate (and banana if using) and blend until smooth. Grease up a baking dish (or cupcake molds) really well. These will stick! Sprinkle with crushed walnuts and bake for 35 minutes or so at 350.
Frownies are done when a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Don’t over bake as they will turn out dry. Cool on rack or in the fridge to stop the cooking process.
Bag up or store in a sealed container…. or share with friends & family and ask them to guess the main ingredient. Watch their eyes get really big once they hear they’re eating beans, it’s pretty fun 🙂
