The first time I heard about bean brownies my inner skeptic kicked in. How could anyone throw beans into a brownie recipe and get away with it? Despite my burgeoning expectations of an ‘earthy’ (and seriously lacking) flavor profile, I was proven to be completely wrong. For such an unorthodox dessert they are really REALLY good. And, a high protein and plant-based treat to boot! Here’s the recipe so you can try it for yourself:
1 1/2 scoops of Vega’s Chocolate Energizing Smoothie
- Heat oven at 350 degrees and lightly grease muffin tins with coconut oil.
- Place all ingredients into food processor or blender and blend into a smooth batter.
- Spoon batter into muffin tins filling them 1/3 of the way.
- Bake for 18-25 mins checking regularly when bake time is nearing the end. When checking doneness fork should come out mostly dry. The inside of the brownie should be slightly gooey when done.
