My Lazy MoFo theme continues with these precious little Chocolate-Peanut Butter Brownie Cookies that are actually made with... *dun dun dunnnnn*... black beans! Remember last year when I told you about my first experience with chickpea cookies? Well, even though I eat those tasty chickpea cookies often, I never ventured into the world of other beany baked goods until yesterday. Enter these tasty little morsels:
Aren't they purdy? The do not taste like beans! I sweetened them with agave, but I can't wait to try them with coconut nectar too. My batter was pretty sticky, so I smoothed the tops of the cookies with the back of a wet spoon. They are irresistibly gooey when they're warm, and super fudgy at room temperature. I flung a warm one into Mr. Wing-It's mouth and asked him what he thought about it...
Mr. Wing-It: Mmmonomnomnom good!
Me: They're black bean cookies!
Mr. Wing-It: Wha??!!
So there you have it. Thank you, Gretchen, for sharing the recipe! Why did I wait so long to bake treats with black beans KNOWING that I already liked chickpea cookies? Because sometimes I'm a little dumb. Go make them!
