What would you make if you were given black beans and mayonnaise and told to create a dish with them? Why black bean brownies, of course. And to make them even more fabulous, how about Nutella Swirled Black Bean Brownies.
This recipe is part of the Crazy Ingredient Challenge. Which is sort of like a bloggers’ version of Chopped. We pick two ingredients from two sets of lists then all try to make a recipe with them. Be sure to scroll below the recipe to see what the other bloggers made.
I have made Black Bean Coconut Brownies before and I figured I would just swap the mayonnaise for the egg and oil, because what is mayonnaise except beaten eggs with oil whipped in it (my recipe is here if you don’t believe me).
If you don’t want to use the mayonnaise just use 2 eggs, 1/2 teaspoon of oil and 1 tablespoon of milk for the liquid.
You’d think without the flour there wouldn’t be a problem with overbeating the mix like there is with traditional brownies. Oh how wrong I was. I didn’t mash the beans down in the blender so it took forever to blend and the result was sunken brownies.
Makes you want to cry, doesn’t it? But they still tasted fabulous. Just learn from my mistake and blend this just until smooth. Or do what I did when they collapsed and I refused to throw them out.
Until next time, happy eating.
