Amazing Black Bean Brownies Recipe

Amazing Black Bean Brownies Recipe
It kills me that I can't take credit for today's black bean brownie recipe. As strange as it sounds (we're talking about brownies packed with pureed black beans), this recipe from a new book by Ania Catalano delivers deliciously dense, bite-sized squares of melt-in-your-mouth fudge-textured brownies. Keep in mind I'm someone who comes across hundreds of brownie recipes a year, it wasn't high on my to-do list to feature yet another brownie recipe. But the quirky ingredient list piqued my curiosity, and in the end the proof was in the pan. Ania mentions that this flourless brownie was the most sought-after recipe at her restaurant and bakery. Ania's new book is called Baking with Agave Nectar. So, like I said - there are some quirky facets to this particular brownie recipe. - More Chocolate Recipes - - More Baked Goods Recipes - For those of you who have a hard time tracking down agave nectar (which is becoming much more readily available) substitute honey 1:1 for the agave nectar.

30 Foods You'll Never Have To Buy Again Cauliflower Pizza Crust (with BBQ Chicken Pizza) I have been wanting to try making a pizza with a cauliflower crust ever since I came across the idea on Recipe Girl; I mean what's not to like about a cauliflower crust for a pizza? I actually got a chance to try a cauliflower crust a couple of months ago but I ran into a problem, the crust stuck so badly to the parchment paper that I could't get it off. What bits that I could get off tasted great though so I was determined to get it right! After hours of going through comments on various cauliflower pizza crust recipes the secret seems to be that you need to squeeze out as much of the liquid as possible from the cooked cauliflower before baking it. As sometimes happens this project fell through the cracks and I forgot about it until the holidays when I picked up a silicon baking mat and it practically had the cauliflower crusts name written on it. The cauliflower pizza crust holds together really well and you can easily eat the pizza with your hands! A healthy thin crust pizza crust!

Vegan Gluten Free Black Bean Brownies It seems ludicrous to make your favorite recipes just once, but when you’re a food blogger sometimes you don’t have time for repeats! But, after making a similar version of these black bean brownies a couple years ago I couldn’t help but try them again. They’re fudgy, sweet, and still one of the best brownies I’ve had to date. Never mind they’re loaded with fiber, omega-3s and tons of other good-for-you ingredients. Just last week I attempted a vegan gluten free brownie recipe that was a total flop. They didn’t set at all and sort of remained “soup” in the pan. Then, I thought, “Why would I make unhealthy brownies if I could make healthy ones that I know I love?” These brownies are ridiculously simple to make. Besides being simple they’re insanely delicious. Enjoy these plain, with some vegan ice cream, dunked in almond milk, slathered with peanut butter or topped with fresh berries (credit to my smart friend Arleigh for the berry idea). Vegan Gluten Free Black Bean Brownies Serves: 12

Crispy Baked Beet Chips - In Sonnet's Kitchen You know the phrase “needle in a haystack”? Do people still say this when they can’t find something? I think it’s time we changed this up. I bought a needle this week to use in a beading project. It’s been 24 hours and I still haven’t found it. Speaking of learning, I also learned an important lesson this week involving beets: they make dang good chips. Have I caught your eye with kale chips before? Start by slicing your beets very thin.

raspberry & goat cheese brownies This might be somewhat of a surprising thing to see here, considering I’m not a fan of goat cheese. But Jack is (that’s an understatement)… and literally this is all of his favorite things packed into one decadent dessert. Months ago, I saw this recipe on The Kitchn, and immediately knew I’d surprise him with it for his birthday. Of course I’m not going to sit by and watch him eat a pan of brownies all by himself. So I made two versions, a (non-dairy) cream cheese version for me, and this goat cheese version for him. (This was easy to split up without much extra work). I made a few other healthier alterations – I used maple syrup instead of sugar, oat flour instead of all purpose, and I used vegan versions of butter and cream cheese. adapted from The Kitchnmakes about 16 small brownie squares 1 cup raspberries (I used frozen), lightly mashed METHOD:Preheat oven to 350. Set raspberries aside (especially if they’re frozen) to thaw at room temperature while you assemble everything else.
