BLENDER BROWNIES

Ok, I think the title of this post gives it away. It’s about brownies, people. But these aren’t just ordinary brownies.

 

These are blender brownies.

Balls, are they good. And healthy. I refrained from mentioning the healthy bit to Tyler until he consumed a couple. I didn’t want the thought of ‘healthy’ consuming his mind and altering his opinion of their taste. BECAUSE.THESE.ARE.GOOD.

Ingredients

  • 1 can chickpeas (14 oz, drained)
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tbsp apple sauce
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 1/8 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • Optional: 1/4 chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease 8×8 pan.
  3. Put all ingredients in the blender.
  4. Blend till smooth.
  5. Pour batter in pan.
  6. Optional: drop chocolate chips over top of poured batter
  7. Bake for 35 minutes.

Ack, it couldn’t get any easier than that. EXCEPT- it’s a bit more dangerous ‘licking the bowl.’ I wouldn’t do that.

I actually first attempted to use my brand new food processor for this, but one of the latches was defective. I of course had to make a call to the nice man and have him send me a warranty part. Frighteningly enough, that made my day. Getting a new (free) part for my kitchen appliance. Sigh. I am really a grown up now. Next thing you know, we’ll be vacuum shopping or some crap like that.

Oh, and I prepared, transfered from processor to back up blender, and baked this IN WHITE SHORTS.

 

Baller right here. This is my makeshift outfit shot- we don’t have any full length mirrors. Yet. (Like the new bathroom color??!!)

  1. Day 1 – made blender brownie ironcally was also wearing white pants. kids devoured theirs, mums too. suggestion was made that maybe a bit of corn flour or flour would hold them together a bit more…perhaps a little longer in the oven. whole pan gone after pregnant nauseous friend popped over for a coffee today.
