The other night I had the insane desire to bake. And for once it genuinely wasn't a desire motivated by wanting to eat whatever delicious thing I whipped up. I genuinely just wanted to chop, melt and fold.
I guess I could put it down to the fact that I took a running break over the weekend and the extra energy had me doing things like chasing my mum around the supermarket with the shopping trolley. Yeah I'm still 5 at heart.
So I had a rave in the kitchen on my own... Hopping around like a bean to the deadly beats on phantom 105.2 while baking chocolate covered katies black bean brownies. Except I used kidney beans cause that's all I had.
Anyway I ended up decided that although the brownies were reaaaalllly good, the raw batter was even better. So then I had the super awesome idea of making nutella out of kidney beans.
Oh no she didn't!? :0
Bouncing Bean Chocolate Spread
•Tin of kidney beans
•2 heaped tbsp cocoa powder
•70g nut butter ( I used almond and hazelnut )
•60g coconut palm sugar
•Drop of vanilla essence
•Pinch of salt
•Optional: stir in roasted almonds or chocolate chips for extra decadence
Blend everything except the optional ingredients in a food processor and process until silky smooth (no beany lumps!).
Once again, excuse the poor picture quality! :S
