A great and healthy alternative for those chocolate cravings
- 3 eggs
- 1⁄3 cup canola oil or 1⁄3 cup olive oil
- 15 ounces garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
- 3 tablespoons soymilk or 3 tablespoons milk
- 1⁄2 cup cocoa, unsweetened
- 1 cup sugar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 -2 teaspoon peppermint or 1 -2 teaspoon orange extract
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Put eggs and oil in the blender and mix for 10 seconds.
- Add remaining ingredients into the blender and process until smooth.
- Spray 8 x 8 inch pan with cooking spray. Pour batter into pan and bake for about 35 minutes*, or until brownies are just pulling away from edges of the pan.
- Cool, cut and serve.
- *Keep an eye on them after 30 minutes as oven temps can vary.
- I refrigerate the brownies and find them even better when they have cooled. Very chocolaty, very yummy.
- Because they are made with beans, it is advised not to eat too much at once.
