Ingredients
  • 1 cup Flour (Oat will do!)
  • 2/3 cup Sugar
  • 3/4 cup Lentils brown if possible
  • 4 tsp Cocoa Unsweetened
  • 5 whole dates
  • 1/2 cup butter Vegan butter works fine
  • 1/2 cup Sugar or 1/3 powdered sweetener and 1/3 flour
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 2 medium Eggs (2 tbsp flaxseeds + 4 TBSP water)
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
Servings: Brownies
Instructions
  1. INSTRUCTIONS Melt butter; mix in lentil purée, cocoa, sugar and salt. Add eggs, one at a time. Mix in vanilla, flour, and cranberries. Bake in a greased 9 x 13 pan at 350° F (175° C) for 22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean. (instead of sugar replacement you could use 1/3 of a cup of protein powder and add 3 tbsp of brown sugar to sweeten) I cooked mine until 2-3 minutes from done, so they were gooey and fudgy. I definitely recommend cream or yoghurt to go with them as they’re very rich.
  2. Preheat your oven to at 350° F (175° C).
  3. Rinse and boil lentils for 15 minutes until tender, drain and puree using a hand blender.
  4. Melt butter in a saucepan, mix in lentil puree, cocoa sugar and salt.
  5. In a seperate bowl add in your flaxseed powder, water, vanilla and combine into a thick paste and add this to your butter saucepan.
  6. Add your flour and optional ingredients (like dried fruit or chocolate) and blend in your flour using a flat spatula.
  7. Transfer your brownie batter to a greased and lined 9 x 13 square pan and bake for 22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. (Underbake by 3 minutes if you'd like them gooey).
