Brownies four ways : blondies, traditional, avocados, and beans

For today’s “chef would be proud series” we are going to share with you four different versions of brownies! 

If you aren’t familiar with what a brownie is well think of it as a small square of rich chocolate cake, typically containing nuts. It has a cake-like texture but a little bit dense and fudgy.

Brownies four ways:

This traditional brownies recipe found on blendtec “fresh blenders” cookbook it’s definitely a winner in my book. I’ve had my blender for about 7 years now and it came with this cookbook. Out of all the recipes I’ve tried I keep coming back to these brownies because they are simple and to the point! The only change I’ve made is add 1/2 cup of brown sugar and 1 cup of granulated sugar instead of 1 1/2 cup of granulated sugar.

Blender Brownies:

3/4 cup of butter (melted)

2/3 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips

3 large eggs

1/2 cup of cocoa powder

1 cup of granulated sugar

1/2 cup of brown sugar

1 tsp of vanilla extract 

7/8 cups of all-purpose flour 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Add butter and chocolate chips to blender and blend for about 1 minute. Add the rest of the ingredients and “pulse” if you also have a blendtec or beat for about 2 or so minutes until batter is well combined. Pour into a greased 9x9 pan. Bake for 30 minutes or until wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Initially I was very skeptical of this oats and black beans recipe. After I got over the thoughts of beans in something sweet the taste was actually delicious! The only few tweaks on this recipe would be to really blend the beans first (in a blender or food processor) and also blend the oats a bit more. Other wise it’s pretty good! I hope you give this black beans brownies by chocolate covered Katie a try! 

The only down of this recipe is that it wasn’t moist enough to my linking. I’m going to tweak the ingredients a bit to see if I can make it moist but I still think that you should try the best blondie recipe by sugar spun run! 

Next to the traditional brownies this avocados recipe has got to be one of my favorites! It’s so silky and moist with a shine to it. My kids loved it and kept coming back for more. You should most definitely try this avocados recipe by detoxsinista!
