In these days when we are at home we decided to give wings to our imagination.
None of us knew if it would be possible to make brownies with our Cocoa Cupcake Mix, but we decided to give it a try. There were several recipes that we tried, but the ingredient that gave it the texture of the dense and moist dough inside and that kept our delicious cocoa flavor was neither more nor less, the beans.
The beans, in addition to giving it the desired texture, added something good for those who are at home playing sports. This brownie is enriched in protein and fiber from beans. See the nutritional information for this recipe in the table at the bottom of the page.
In addition to not having any of the 14 allergens, gluten, lactose or GMO's, it is suitable for vegan diets and is also beneficial for those who have just done a workout.
We leave the recipe below:
- 1 pack of Fidu Cacao Cupcake Preparation 250g
- 250g cooked red or black beans
- 30ml of olive oil or coconut oil
- 170ml of water
1. Preheat the oven to 170ºC.
2. Pour the contents of the Cocoa Cupcake Mix package into a bowl.
3. Add 30ml of olive oil or coconut oil. Stir until you get a sandy-looking mixture.
4. Add the 170ml of water to the cooked beans (you can also use the water from the beans' cooking) and grind with a magic wand or blender.
5. Add the crushed beans to the mixture and mix with a wire whisk, until obtaining a homogeneous cream.
6. Pour the dough into a rectangular shape previously greased or lined with parchment paper.
7. Bake for about 20 minutes (cooking time may vary depending on the type and size of the pan and the type of oven used). Check that the cake is cooked with the help of a toothpick.
8. Remove the cake from the oven, unmold it after a few minutes and let it cool for 20 minutes before slicing.
Attention: In this recipe you can use dried beans and cook them at home or you can use canned beans that have already been cooked. However, you should pay attention to the list of allergens on the package of canned beans, as some may contain traces of soy, lupine or sulphites.
