Healthy Black Bean Brownies

The first time I heard about black bean brownies, I turned my nose up. First of all, brownies aren’t my go-to dessert (although they can be delicious, see: Judith’s brownies) and second of all, BEANS?! IN BROWNIES?! Now you’re talking crazy. However, here at Hungry and Fit we’re always looking at ways to healthify things we love so we have no limits. One day, one of my trainers brought in black bean brownies and they were darn good. Black bean brownies are a sure lesson of not judging a book by its cover, because they are gooo–oood! This recipe is a sure way to eating brownies guilt-free!

Baileys Brownies!

Okay I know it’s not close to St. Patrick’s Day, but we still have Baileys left-over from that event and I’ve always wanted to give that a try. We aren’t super big into alcohol (although I do like my red wine), but we both can agree on some  Baileys when it comes up. So these are normal, darker brownies with some Baileys in it for a kick! I got the recipe here. It was kind of rushed on my part because I made them right before we went to a friend’s, but they still turned out alright!

  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Baking: 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 cup white flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup turbinado sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 bar dark chocolate
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup Baileys
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Directions

  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F
  • First of all, chop up that dark chocolate into little bits
  • Then, whisk the flour, cocoa powder, salt, and baking soda 
  • Melt the butter and dark chocolate over low heat in a pot
  • Now into the pot (once the dark chocolate is melted), whisk in the eggs, sugar, vanilla, and Baileys

  • Add the flour mixture and whisk until it’s all combined
  • Pour the mixture into a foil-lined plan (go for a 8×8, I wasn’t so lucky) and bake for 20 minutes!
  • When they are all ready, go ahead and sprinkle some powdered sugar on top

It’s pretty simple and doesn’t take much time at all. Mine were a little dry for my liking (although, Chris liked them), so I would make them a bit thicker next time. You can definitely taste the Baileys in it, so be prepared! Suitable for all ages though…the 5-year-old I made them for loved them! And as always…stay hungry and fit!
