Still have those beans in the cupboard? Well I do.
So instead of making chili or soup I decided to make brownies.
For this recipe you need, kidney beans, maple syrup, butter (or coconut oil if you want it vegan), cocoa powder, baking soda, and vanilla extract.
Blend everything together in a food processor. You want to make the beans as smooth as you can.
If you want it to be smoother, you might want to take the skins off the beans. But I didn’t mind the extra fiber.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Pour into a baking pan and bake for 30 minutes. Make sure you smooth out the top. Turn off the oven and then allow to sit in the oven for another 30 minutes. This allows the brownies to set and get nice and fudgy.
These brownies were nice and soft and definitely had the texture of fudgy brownies.
