    Bean brownies seemed so weird to me, but I do love red beans, so I thought "why not?" and I like experimenting with weird recipes.
    I just made them today, they're really good! I hope there'll be more of these videos in the future ^-^

    I made the brownies using Martina's method (squashing the beans with a masher and fork), swapped out the honey for actual sugar and I thought they were all right. I used a food processor the second go round today, used honey, and the brownies are MUCH better. The processor helps smooth the beans and oats, and it looks and tastes more like brownies. I doubt I will eat regular brownies again.

    Pro tip: if you ever need to pour out honey/syrup and oil in the same recipe, measure out the oil first if you can and then the honey! The honey slides right out, no waiting for it to drip business

    Everyone said that it is just delicious.
    Except one guy, but he doesn't like anything, like he just hates life itself.

    I have a question! What's a good substitute for the coconut oil? My dad had a heart attack and on his list of foods he should avoid is coconut oil.

    • snoozleblob
      snoozleblob Год назад +1

      (Totally super late and probably not relevant anymore for you, haha but just in case...) In the original recipe, the author says some commenters had good success substituting the oil with peanut butter. I suppose any nut butter would work really if that's the case since I think coconut oil is there to sort of solidify the mixture a bit and add flavour. I've tried this with a mixture of peanut oil and peanut butter before and it was alright.

    this is the first of your recipes that ive tried (i mean i also tried the chia seed pudding but... we don't talk about that) and it is SO GOOD i was skeptic because ive read that this kind of brownies are really gross, but i made mine with canned beans and a spoonful of refried beans, i made oat flour instead of using quick cooking oats and i added some quinoa açai dark chocolate bites i had lying around because i ran out of chocolate chips and Martina is totally right, you should taste the batter before cooking them because mine needed a bit more cocoa and honey, thank you so much! im gonna try them with beans cooked from scratch and see if they turn out better

    • Simon and Martina
      Simon and Martina  Год назад

      No you're right, I had a food processor in Korea but the plugs are different so I couldn't bring any of my kitchen devices with me to Japan. It is way way worth it to use the food processor because the key is making the beans super smooth. I just bought a new mini-food processor a few days ago so I'll be able to make a much nicer and smoother brownie now.

    ive been waiting to try this and I JUST MADE THESE 2HRS AGO AND THEY ARE ACTUALLY REALLY GREAT!!!!! fosho when martina says to mash the beans really well, make sure its really smooth. i was too lazy and just hand mashed. it was smooth, but could have been better since they didn't hold as well due to the chunkiness

    • Simon and Martina
      Simon and Martina  Год назад +3

      Cool! Yes the smoothness makes all the difference! I just bought a new food processor so these will be a lot nicer once smoother.

      Gabriel McCloud agave isn't the only alternative sweetener though, I personally don't even use it because it's actually really bad for you and your body processes it the exact same way as high fructose corn syrup. I use maple syrup, or make my own simple syrup with sugar if needed.

    • Kat McCloud
      Kat McCloud Год назад +1

      Well, agave farming is pushing multiple animal species (ie long-nosed bats) towards endangerment and even extinction! So *this* vegan will take honey from farmers that are keeping bees from going extinct themselves over a sweetener that harms animal populations any day~

    • chocobunny39
      chocobunny39 Год назад

      honey is an animal by-product so not vegan. i like to think of it as bee vomit they create to feed their baby larvae baby bees (???) and we steal it to eat since its sweet. thats my very poor description and take of why honey isn't vegan haha. or u can just google it :P

    I couldn't find any carob chips at my grocery store, so made these without them and they were ok (wanted to keep it vegan so I didn't want to use regular chocolate chips). Not very chocolaty or sweet. I guess that's a vital ingredient >

    • Simon and Martina
      Simon and Martina  Год назад

      I'm not 100%, but some people were telling me that most chocolate chips are vegan bc they contain no milk product? I thought they did but apparently a lot of them are not made with milk! Maybe google it to be sure?
