I made some Gluten-Free pasta tonight (rice and corn spaghetti from Barilla). The kids couldn’t tell the difference! The taste and texture was the best GF option I have found. Yay Barilla!!
But, I decided to take the GF all the way through dessert! Whaaaat? Yup, GF brownies. I have been wanting to try this recipe ever since I came across it and I finally got the black beans the other night. Yup, that’s right-I said black beans!
I can’t take credit for the idea, as I found the recipe on Chocolatecoveredkatie.com, but I did add a couple extra Tablespoons of cocoa and a few more mini chocolate chips… because I like chocolate… and because, well, why not?!!?
I have to say, I was a bit skeptical about using beans. I under-baked it (12 minutes) and that seemed to be perfect for the way I like my brownies. They were baked long enough to hold everything together but not long enough to dry them out. The best part was, my daughters had no idea they were made from beans! The taste was pretty good and the texture wasn’t bad, either. I will definitely make these again!
