The secret ingredient chocolate brownies
This recipe will have your friends stumped trying to guess the main ingredient!
Wheat free, Gluten free (can be dairy free, nut free) and STILL so TASTY!
The ADZUKI or ADUKI Bean
The basic plain RECIPE
This can be modified to suit your tastes and needs.
ADD more sweetener (if you like sweet)
ADD walnuts or macadamia if you like a crunch in your brownie
ADD berries or cherries if you like fruit on your brownie
ADD chocolate chips if you like a heavy chocolate dessert.
1 can organic Eden ADUKI beans, drained and rinsed *available at health food stores (or soak and cook your own)
3 organic/free range eggs
4-5 TBS cocoa powder
3 TBS coconut oil (organic extra virgin) for dairy free OR (100g organic butter)
1 tsp vanilla extract
Sweetener of your choice (I used about 1/4 cup of AGAVE syrup and 2 TBS of brown sugar )
1 tsp baking soda/bicarb soda
Rinse and drain beans and put into a saucepan over low heat with coconut oil (or butter), cocoa powder, vanilla, agave syrup and sugar. Mix until all melted and combined. Transfer to a bowl and blend until very smooth and let it cool a bit.... Add eggs, bicarb soda and mix in.
Pour into your choice baking tin (i used a rectangular tin approx 23 x 13 cm) and add anything else you want here (eg nuts, choc chips) and bake at 175 deg for about approx 25-30 mins. Careful not to over cook as it may dry (and will be more fudgey if undercooked).
