Recipe of the week – Healthy Brownies

Image

 

If you like it sweet, but have deprived yourself for health reasons, this might be the right alternative – and you can also purchase the cook book to go with it, if you go to the website below ($ 5). Otherwise simply try the recipe below and see if you enjoy it as much as I did. Have fun and lose weight while eating chocolate brownies in moderation, Barbara

Ingredients
* 1 cup cooked black beans 
* 1 1/2 large eggs
* 1 tbsp + 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
* 2 tbsp cocoa powder
* 1/3 cup soaked pitted dates, finely chopped
(about 12-14)
* 1/2 tsp baking soda
* 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
* 1/8 tsp sea salt
* 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
* 2-3 tbsp dark chocolate chips

Directions
1. Soak dates for 1-2 hours until soft, but
not mushy, drain and chop finely
2. Preheat oven to 350F
3. Rinse and drain the black beans well
4. Add all ingredients except for chocolate
chips in blender and blend until very smooth
5. Stir in chocolate chips
6. Pour batter into rectangular loaf pan that
has been brushed with butter or olive oil or
lined with parchment paper
7. Bake at 350F for 20-25 minutes, do not
overcook
8. Brownies are ready when a toothpick
inserted into the middle comes out clean
9. Cool and then cut into squares

TIP: these taste even BETTER after a night
in the fridge, but I don’t blame you for having
one while they’re still hot. 🙂
