Join me in the whole food movement. Move with me. Where are we going? Brownieville. Let’s make treats out of real food. Let’s take something that is meant to be eaten alongside a plate of tacos and turn it into a brownie. The bean you love to put in your chili makes a fantastic treat when blended up with chocolate. The main ingredient of hummus? Brownie it.
If you have resolved that today is the last day you will ever be eating sugar again, EVER, you may want to go out with this brownie. Or if like many, you are trying to find alternatives to wheat and prefer keeping treats on the nutritious side, this recipe may cater to your needs too. Garbanzo beans are very high in fiber (two cups of the bean give you all the fiber you need for the day) and the type of fiber fuels the cells in your intestinal wall and promotes colon health. Plus all the antioxidants from the dark chocolate chips and cocoa powder? Smooooooth move!
The consistency of this treat comes out somewhere along the lines of fudge, brownie and holy mother of yum. It’s thick, smooth, and dense and you have no clue, not even a smidge of an idea that you’re eating mooshed up beans. Not a bean person, you say? That don’t matter none…blend the legume right out of them and dive in. Want to fool your friends? Put beans in their brownies and give yourself a round of applause for baking a brownie out of our friend, the garbanzo bean.
