These delicious chocolate brownies are made with kidney beans instead of butter and oil. They’re topped with yummy peanut butter frosting! As a brownie lover I have to tell you they are amazing!
If you had to ask me my favorite treat, it would be a 3 way tie.
First, there’s donuts. What’s not to love about them? They’re sweet, they have icing, they’re cute and circle shaped, they often have sprinkles. I just love them.
Recently, I’m all about scones and clotted cream. A nice big spoonful of cream. There’s a shop nearby that has mixed berry scones and it’s out of this world. It’s the best scone I ever had. I hope Matthew is reading this and understands this means I want a date to the scone place. As soon as possible. Thanks babe.
Third, there’s brownies. Just say the word “Brownie”. Don’t you feel better? It doesn’t matter if they are homemade brownies, bought in a shop, or made from a box. I’ll say yes to any brownie. My favorite brownies are moist and fudgy when you bite into them. There’s always a thick layer of frosting on top, to the point that it makes up 1/2 of the brownie. I need a brownie right now.
Did someone ask for a brownie? Ok, I did. Say hello to these Sorta Healthy Red Bean Brownies with Sinful Peanut Butter Frosting.
I like to call them sorta healthy because they are made with red beans (I love creating desserts with beans!). Instead of butter and a lot of oil, the red beans take care of that and make the brownies moist. I’m not calling them healthy because let’s be honest, if you want a brownie, you’re probably not going for healthy. In fact I’d say you have one goal: eat a brownie, make sure it’s delicious.
The Peanut Butter Frosting is sinful. The dictionary tells me that sinful means wicked; extremely enjoyable in a way that makes you feel guilty. And that’s pretty much this frosting. I made a tweet a few nights ago exclaiming that I couldn’t stop eating frosting. This was that frosting. It’s delicious. It will change your life. You will want to clean the bowl. You will clean the bowl.
