Double Dark Chocolate Black Bean Brownie Cookies

These cookies were a complete accident. A complete and total chocolate-y, rich, fudgy, accident. After making a big batch of black beans and then tortilla soup this week, I had exactly a cup and a half of cooked black beans left over. What to do, what to do? I thought, hmm... black bean brownies haven't … Continue reading Double Dark Chocolate Black Bean Brownie Cookies

Banana Bread Batter Overnight Oats

So overnight oats. I was a little hesitant to post this recipe because the whole overnight oatmeal thing is a little... two years ago? In fact, the first overnight oats recipe I ever posted on the blog was back in 2015, this Almond Butter and Carob number. Throwing all notions of being a "cool" and … Continue reading Banana Bread Batter Overnight Oats
