Brownie batter? Yes. Edible brownie batter? Yes please! Healthy Edible Brownie Batter made from beans and vegetables? Uh, you lost me.
Now before you start chucking legumes at me, just hear me out. This decadent tasting dessert is like box brownie mix minus the raw egg and salmonella poisoning. It’s even *gasp* good for you!
Thanks to the black beans and steamed cauliflower in this recipe, this brownie batter is creamy and rich while also being packed with fiber and protein. It also gets an extra boost of plant based protein from the peanut butter and peanut flour. Sweetened naturally with date syrup, this brownie batter is the perfect way to satisfy your sweet tooth at the end of the night. The protein will help keep you full without feeling a need to eat a whole tray of brownies.
This recipe is also even easier to make that boxed brownie mix. All you have to do is stick everything in a food processor, blitz everything up, and let your fridge do the rest of the heavy lifting. In less than an hour (including wait time) you’ll have brownie batter to last you the week.
I personally like adding mini dark chocolate chips into this recipe for a sweet crunch in every bite. Feel free to throw in anything you would usually put in a brownie though (or what you wouldn’t usually. Hello potato chip, cereal brownie batter!). Walnuts, cacao nibs, marshmallows, anything you want! The world is your oyster...or legume?
