Brownies With A Secret Ingredient


My daughter loves to bake and is always trying out new recipes, but when she told me she wanted to make these gluten free brownies with a secret ingredient...well, I almost barfed.
So off to market we went to the gather her ingredients for the brownies. She was going to borrow Grandma's food processor until we looked at it and discovered it was probably the first one ever invented....and not even sure if it still worked? Okay, so it wasn't as old as this, but just wanted to show you how far we have come.

So we made a trip to the store to look at food processors since she has been wanting one forever. We had a 20% off store coupon and were pleasantly surprised to see an additional 20- mail in rebate. It was our lucky day. She must have really wanted it in a bad way since she made the purchase with her own hard earned money. :)

So now we are back home and she's ready to get this thing going.
Her bee-utiful new black processor is ready for work. It's a dream!


Don't forget the BEANS! shhhh.... It's the SECRET ingredient.


And here they are, just out of the oven...

We placed them in the frig overnight because she had read they are better when chilled. We just had them today and I can honestly say that they were GREAT!

They have a very smooth texture , almost like fudge. I'm glad she loaded them with walnuts because I'm not so sure they would be as yummy without. If you decide to make these, don't tell anyone about the secret ingredient. Let them try it first, get their reaction and tell them when they are finished. Just click HERE for the recipe. Tamerie..if you are reading this, I hope it didn't turn your stomach too much. She doesn't eat beans OR chocolate. :)

Love the food processor! Beans?? Sounds really bad but looks really tasty. I will have to make these for my sister the "Brownie Expert" and see if she can tell what the secret ingredient is.

Hey T...
Serve them chilled and don't tell her about a secret ingredient until she tastes it. :) I'm curious to her reaction since she's big brownie fan. Just tell her they are more fudgey than cakey. heehee

They sound dreadful to me. I never thought those two dislikes (okay, for beans, it's hate; for chocolate, it's just don't like) would ever end up together! Amazing!
