About Me

My photo


Change. I've learned to embrace it, ride it out til the end. Sometimes I'm kicking and screaming, other times weeping with my eyes clinched tight. Once in awhile I ride like a dog in a car, head out the window snorting what life has to offer. Mother to young adult children, a marriage of thirty years, and a desert to mountain to valley waltz with God have shaped me into someone I never imagined I'd be. Life is short and I want to live it. Tears, sighs, laughter and change. Every morsel granted to me. Scrambled, shaken or stirred.

Scribbles and Scrambles ~ Another Brownie Tweak O Yummish

Ready for the next weird recipe?

I didn't believe my friend.

Why?

Well. As odd and tweaky as I'm willing to get, I just couldn't wrap my brain around this one.

Brownies.

Black Bean Brownies.

Okay. So you are likely gone and no one is reading this, but on the off chance that you are, they are stinking (no pun intended) good.

One brownie mix
One can of black beans (oh, please check as I almost DIDN'T, that it's just black beans and bean juice, not spices and bits of pepper!!!!)

That is the entire ingredient list. (my friend used the normal sized small can of beans and a small brownie mix, I used the big brownie mix and the same size can of beans...both worked)

Take can of black beans and run them thru the food processor till pasty. (Juice and all)
Add brownie mix and blend til fully combined.

Grease a pan. (whichever size your brownie mix calls for). Dump in the stuff. Bake as directed. Note: I had to add about 10 minutes to mine to set up the middle. So watch the time.

These are chewy and you seriously can not taste or feel the beans. I'm going to try it with a scratch brownie recipe and see if I can't cut some of the sugar, just because I can't leave well enough alone. But til then, these are pretty tasty and full of fiber. : ).
