Lately I have been baking and my sweets of choice are ‘Black Bean Brownies’. Made with kidney beans instead of black beans. Following several attempts I believe that I have finally succeeded in baking a rather satisfactory batch. This has been verified by a few friends. As well as tasting yummy they are exceedingly healthy. Crumbs I do sound like Mr. Kipling. WPA- Woeful puns alerts- the following text may contain cringe worthy baking puns. No apologies as this is how I roll.
As with any baking, all you knead is love. And there is almost a guarantee that everything will turn out fine. I said almost. Whilst baking my brownies yesterday . Buzz and Finn were gazing at me in the kitchen ( my two little Morkie dogs, if you are new to my site ) with their dough eyes looking for treats as they were being particularly good. As I tossed them some treats I managed to spill the opened bags of chocolate chips all over the floor. Buzz and Finn went mental scrambling for choccie chips. I managed to grab hold of both of them and move them into the sitting room whilst I tidied up. As chocolate is extremely toxic to dogs I was very anxious but thankfully they did not eat any.
Kidney beans are very high in fibre and as I found out later they make you fart rather a lot. Whilst leaving the beach with my friends today I let one rip (as I had a brownie before our swim). I was rather shocked with the ferocity of the fart and said ‘I think I know why they are called brownies……..’. Thank goodness it wasn’t more than a fart but it was close.
That’s all for now
