BLACK BEAN BROWNIES

 
Prepare to have your mind blown and life changed.
 
Yesterday I happened to have the Dr. Oz show playing in the living room while I was in my office. Only half listening my ears perked up when they started talking about brownies - in typical Dr. Oz fashion, black bean brownies. A quick google search later I had printed this recipe from The Minimalist Baker. (I ended up adapting it heavily. My recipe isn't vegan among other changes.)
 
After tasting the batter, then binge eating it, I knew I was on to something orgasmic. It tasted just like the Duncan Hines box mix that I'm accustom too - but better as it was fudgier. I  made these suckers just this morning - so they're hot off the press and I'm on a brownie high. (Though that could be the weed I put in them.) I told you I made adaptations!!
 

Ingredients
-15oz can black beans, well rinsed and drained
-2 eggs
-3 T olive oil
-3/4 cup cocoa powder
-1/2 tsp sea salt
-1 tsp vanilla extract
-1/2 cup (and a pinch extra) sugar
-1 1/2 tsp baking powder
-Crushed almonds for topping (obvi optional)

Instructions
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. Grease 12 slot muffin pan
3. Throw everything (minus almond topping) in food processor and pulse it til its the normal consistency of brownie batter
4. Eat tons of the batter - it's amazing!!!!
5.Distribute batter into muffin tin (Mine only made 10 muffins)
6.Top with almonds.
7.Bake for 25 minutes.
8. Let cool for 30 minutes before removing from pan


Has anyone tried these before? Or plan on trying them now?
