Some important points to remember:
#1 Recipe - HEALTHY BROWNIES (YOU WON'T BELIEVE WHAT THEY ARE MADE OF :-)
1 can kidney beans (or black beans), rinsed and drained
1/2 c almond milk (can use skim milk if preferred)
1/3 liquid egg or 1 whole egg
1/4 c melted butter (you can leave this out and it still works fine)
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
1/2 c low glycemic agave (original recipe called for 3/4 c sugar substitute)
1/2 c unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder (I use gluten free)
1/2 c chopped pecans or other nuts (optional)
Put beans in a food processor or blender and puree. Add the milk, liquid egg, butter and vanilla and puree until smooth. Set aside.Preheat oven to 350F
Combine sweetener, flour, cocoa, baking power in large bowl. Pour bean mixture over the flour mixture and stir to combine. Scrape the batter into an 8" square baking pan. Sprinkle with nuts if desired. Bake for 25-30 min or until cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool on rack.
Dr. Nancy's Baked Beans
1 can black beans
1 can kidney beans
1 can navy beans (or cannellini)
1/4 c - 1/2 c no sugar added ketchup
1/4 c agave (or alternative low glycemic sweetener)
Drain beans then mix all 3 types together and add ketchup and agave. Bake @ 325F covered for 45 min. I like to remove the lid for 10 min additional to reduce the liquid so the beans are not too "soupy". Yummm!!!!
