Black Bean Brownies with Vegan Icing
This is the only way I can keep chocolate in the house! I can't easily dip into a container of cocoa powder when I get a craving. Forgive me for the terrible photograph, some things just don't love the camera. A word of warning, you can make a black bean brownie that will fool someone if you don't tell them, but not with this recipe! These are very good, but they definitely taste 'healthy.'
I used this recipe for the brownies, with the following modifications to the ingredients:
I made the icing using this recipe, with the following modification to the ingredients:
I've started making the applesauce for these recipes from scratch. It only takes about five minutes to peel and cut up an apple, put it into a small saucepan with a bit of water, and make your own applesauce. Homemade apple sauce tastes exactly 1000% better than the stuff you get in the grocery store, and it costs less too.
What I Eat
I want to give you an idea of how to eat healthfully on a restricted diet, without a lot of work, by showing you how I eat! I eat strictly gluten-free. You'll find A LOT of veggies in this blog! I eat both fish and meat a few times a week (local and/or humane, whenever possible), and dairy when I'm visiting family and friends, or eating out. I hope you find this blog inspiring and interesting!
