Ninja brownies, because I had to move stealth-like through the kitchen - as to not attract unwanted attention - while I opened, rinsed, and drained a can of black beans.
S: Whatcha making?
S: Oooohhhhh, brownies. What kind?
Me: Good ones.
That seemed to satisfy his curiosity. Thank goodness he has the attention span of a puppy on the weekends; he crams a weeks worth of TV, reading, internet searches, and you tube videos into 2 days.
This was my first attempt at bean brownies and I have to admit, my expectations were pretty low. I mean, come on...beans....in brownies. I was pleasantly surprised, as was S!! I didn't tell him about the beans until after he ate the brownies. I did tell him they were a new, chocolaty, chewy recipe I was trying (technically, this was no lie). They reminded me of Little Debbie's Cosmic Brownies, minus the chemicals and artificial stuff - come on, we've all had one before, right? They were moist, fudgy, and chewy....all the fine qualities a brownie should have. Obviously they were a hit - I'm lucky I snapped this pic when I did.
I originally found this recipe on Pinterest....which led me to Foodista....where I then learned that this recipe was by Andie Mitchel, CanYouStayForDinner....but I could not find it on her website.
Would I make them again? Yes. Absolutely! I did only use 1 egg plus one egg yolk, as opposed to the two eggs plus one egg yolk - foods that are too eggy bother S, as mentioned before :)
