I SAID SIT DOWN!
Are you sitting down?
Because this recipe could knock you off your feet.
Brownie Batter Dip.
I SAID BROWNIE BATTER DIP!
And it’s healthy.
Are you still sitting down?
Because the ingredients may
scare shock you.
There’s only four.
Black beans, cocoa powder, black cocoa powder and pure maple syrup.
You might be wondering what the difference between cocoa powder and black cocoa powder is.
Here’s a visual:
Black cocoa powder.
Black cocoa powder tastes like Oreo cookies.
I SAID FIND SOME!
Just in case you can’t find any, feel free to use 3-4 tablespoons of regular (i.e. boring) cocoa powder.***
(***UPDATE: After a careful comparison of about 22 spoonfuls of brownie batter dip, it NEEDS the black cocoa powder. Fear not! I will be working on a new recipe for those folks that can’t find the black cocoa powder!).
Hold all your bean biases until you try the dip.
It even passed the pregnant- lady- at- work test.
That means things.
Like, even fetus’ love this dip.
And I don’t even think a fetus has fully developed taste-buds.
BROWNIE BATTER DIP
1 (15 oz) can black beans, drained and rinsed
6 tablespoons maple syrup (just over 1/3 cup)
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 tablespoon black cocoa powder
Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor.
Blend until creamy and smooth.
Serve with fresh fruit, pretzels, cookies, or crackers.
Or just eat it from a spoon like any decent human being.
Feel free to teach the batter to mouth technique to the fetus at a developmentally appropriate age.
*March “Clean” Eating tidbit: This recipe used the last can of black beans from the pantry!
