Banana Garbanzo Bean Fudge Brownies

  
  Brownie lovers who like to eat healthy, here is a yummy recipe for you!   

  This recipe's all good-for-you ingredients are just thrown into a food processor (I'm sure a blender would work perfectly also), to combine. When they are done baking, the finished product is like a cross between a brownie and fudge... hence the name works nicely. ;)  




Banana Garbanzo Bean Fudge Brownies

a 15.5 oz can chickpeas

1\4 cup of banana

1\4 cup walnuts 

2 tablespoons butter *

1 tablespoon yogurt

1 teaspoon vanilla 

1\4 cup cocoa 

3\4 cup coconut sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder

a couple pinches of salt
               ~~
Combine all ingredients in food processor or blender until smooth. Pour into greased 9x9 pan. 
Brush top with melted butter**.

Bake at 350 degrees for 21 minutes.  


*You can probably substitute almond or peanut butter for the banana, walnuts, and butter, if you'd like. Otherwise the recipe is peanut and almond free, for those who have allergies to these. :) 

**Optional- I did this to try give it a glossy top... didn't really work.

  2. They are really good, despite having beans in them. ;) The brownies are kind of like fudge when they're frozen. Yuuuummmm! :)
