Ok, now it's going to become difficult for me to type with one hand...
Because we always want it all. It's been my lifelong quest to find a way to have my cake and eat it too, figuratively and literally. So one month into my new (slightly deviant) vegan lifestyle I decided to try my hand at low-fat vegan brownies.
She was afraid of that.
Are low-fat vegan brownies too good to be true?
Yes. They are.
In reality they're awful.
The recipe I found (in which each brownie was only 70 calories!) called for a lot of things I already had in the house--bananas, cocoa powder, agave nectar, pastry flour, black beans...wait black beans?
Basically you toss everything in a blender until smooth, pour into a greased 8x8 and bake at 350 for 25 minutes. The batter looks almost like it should, it tasted ok, not like a traditional brownie, but like it would get the job done. Once baked however it looks like, well, bean dip except it was almost flavorless and had a consistency like mushy graham crackers. It kind of smelled like chocolate, I guess.
But I know there's got to be a way. Low fat vegan brownies are my new unicorn.
