Secret Ingredient Healthy Brownies.

04 October 2015

You know those healthy recipes you find online, try out and then suffer with the disappointment that they weren't as good as the real thing? Well, these are not those. I know what you're thinking - nothing could ever beat a deep, rich, fudge and chocolatey brownie - but these do just the job whilst being gluten, lactose, (basically everything) free, and vegan to boot. I tried them out on my unsuspecting family and not a single comment, not even a guess as to whether a different recipe had been used. Even from my sister who's the Paul Hollywood of our family - result! 

Makes 9 


1 can of black beans
2 tbsp cocoa powder
40g quick oats
75g honey/maple syrup - depending on your taste and vegan preferences
2 tbsp sugar (or omit and increase the above)
40g coconut or vegetable oil
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking powder
115-140g chocolate chips (not optional)

Simply blend all the ingredients together in a food processor and then add in the chocolate chips. Pour into a greased 8x8 pan and let cook for 10-15 mins before cooling and tucking in. Why not play a game and see who can taste the magic ingredient - I'll bet you they can't! 

Will you be making these? Let me know how they go if you do!
