Just in time for the holidays, Randall Beans has something a little sweet to share with you.
There are two kinds of people in this world: those who love brownies and liars. Seriously, what isn’t there to love about rich, moist, chocolatey brownies? Well, we’ve captured all they things that make brownies so darn good and put a whole new bean-powered twist on it!
Never had a black bean brownie before? The black bean base packs these brownies with extra protein, a nutty hint and are far more healthy than your typical brownie recipe. All the elements of a superb turtle brownie are present in this dynamite recipe: chocolate chips, chopped pecans and ooey, gooey caramel!
Semi-sweet chocolate chips and vanilla extract team together to help give the black bean base that traditional brownie taste we all know and love – so fear not picky eaters of the world! Pecans are essential for any turtle-style dish, breaking up the smooth and creamy texture with bits of crunch. Top it off with salty caramel sauce and you’ve got a winner on your hands!
You won’t ever even know the difference, and your body will thank you for it later. Serve them warm with vanilla ice cream or try putting them in the fridge to chill!
Of course, you can always go with store-bought caramel sauce, but if you are feeling adventurous, why not try this drop-dead tasty recipe we found for a quick and easy to make salted caramel sauce we found on www.sallysbakingaddiction.com! The extra saltiness and grit from the salt inject a whole new dimension of flavor and texture.
