So, instead of cleaning, I did a 10-minute ab workout, took a long shower and baked a batch of Vegan Black Bean Brownies from a recipe by Lindsay over at Happy Herbivore. Unbelievably yummy, ooey gooey and unlike anything I had expected! The only difference is that I left out the raw sugar – after tasting the batter with the agave nectar and my seriously overripe bananas, it seemed sweet enough. I’m glad I did – they were perfectly sweet!
The cast of characters (not including 2 very ugly bananas):
Unfortunately, I don’t have a food processor, so I had to mix up the ingredients in a blender, which took some serious work and lots of spatula scraping to get a fully-mixed batter.
Instead of greasing a pan, I used aluminum foil, which worked out well. It peeled right off once the finished brownies were cooled.
Sliced and ready to head to the gym to give to a friend (who, last week, made me some amazing raisin buns)
Not gonna lie.. I saved a couple for myself as a post-dinner treat! Lunch and work calls..
