Are you tired of adding greens in your diet? Pregnant and constipated? Looking for new ways to increase your fibre? Look no more! Here is a recipe that is both mouth-watering and will help speed up your digestion. Plus nobody will guess what the key ingredient is. Can you find it?
Here is what you need:
1 can of black beans, rinsed and mashed
¾ cup of Whole Wheat Flour
½ cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp of baking powder
½ tsp of salt
3 large eggs
3/4 cup of granulated sugar
¼ unsweetened applesauce
3 tbsp of canola oil
2 tsp vanilla extract
¼ cup of miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips
Putting it all together in 4 steps:
- Preheat oven at 3500F
- Line an 8 inch square baking pan with parchment paper, leaving a 2 inch overhang on opposite sides.
- In a large bowl, combine beans, flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. With a wooden spoon, beat in eggs, sugar, applesauce, oil and vanilla until well blended. Stir in chocolate chips. Pour batter into prepared pan.
- Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until just a few moist crumbs cling to a tester inserted in the centre. Do not over-bake. Let cool in pan on a wire rack. Using paper overhangs as handles, remove from pan and transfer brownies to a cutting board. Cut into squares.
