Brownies made with black beans and tofu? Why the heck not?! Brownies made with black beans and tofu? Why the heck not?!
Number of Servings: 16


    1 can (15 oz) black beans, rinsed and drained
    3 whole eggs
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    12 oz package extra-firm tofu
    1/2 c. unsweetened applesauce
    2 tsp canola oil
    1/3 c. pure maple syrup

    3/4 c (3 scoops) chocolate whey protein powder
    1 tsp baking powder
    1/2 c unsweetened cocoa powder
    1/8 tsp sea salt


Blend black beans in the food processor. Add the rest of the wet ingredients and blend to combine.

Combine dry ingredients, and add to the wet ingredients, then blend until smooth.

Pour batter into a greased 8 x 8 baking dish, and bake for 30 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. NOTE: Though the recipe said to bake 30 min, I had to bake for nearly an hour.

    Bake these at 350 degrees. If you have toasted walnut oil, substitute that for the canola - it tastes AMAZING. Mine had to bake about 45 minutes. Yum!! - 12/9/10

    I made this recipe today and found that taste wise they reminded me of a super filling chocolatey protein bar. I did not have apple sauce so I used canned pumpkin and it still turned out fine. I ended up baking mine for 30 minutes and it was cooked properly. - 9/2/10
