Many thanks to all the ladies that responded to my dating disaster post, definitely cheered me up about the present/future!
I dreamed about toast last night.
And before falling asleep, I tackled the Snickerdoodle Blondie recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie. I was also inspired by The Mommy Bowl’s recipe for Banana Bread Hummus. Decided to lump the two together by adding banana to my blondie.
The “batter” was AMAZING. I should have left well enough alone and just eaten it as-is, but I didn’t have anything to put it on/eat it with (other than a spoon…).
Instead, I cooked it. And…It tasted of chickpeas, still had a hint of chickpea texture and just…wasn’t that good. I won’t be making the blondie version again. I WILL be making the batter/dip this evening (after stopping at Trader Joe’s to pick up some cinnamon sugar pita chips first–perfect excuse to try those out!), as a friend is coming over for a Nip/Tuck marathon while her house is fumigated (fleas…yuck). Perfect snack-y treat!
And yes, I prefer to eat warm desserts on paper towels.
I’m glad you liked the dip version. I tried baking some of it, and while I didn’t think it tasted more beany baked, it was definitely mushy and not at all like the pic that Katie has. But, then, I didn’t actually follow her directions. So, what do I expect. 🙂
Oh, and there’s NOTHING wrong with eating it with a spoon. 😉
I tried black bean brownies once and I had the same problem! I tasted like black beans and it was lumpy lol
Ummm this looks delicious. I am currently craving WFs hot bar, but I’m too lazy to walk there and I told myself that’s the only way I’m getting it. Plus, I have tons of food to eat here. So adding ingredients for this to my shopping list though 🙂
I dream about food too, but I’m not sure I have ever dreamed about toast. Hmmm…the beans thing is tricky, I’m not sure how to get beans to taste neutral.
Are there any options other than beans you can cook with?
Plates are for suckers… 🙂
Looks like a fun and tasty treat. Enjoy the Nip/Tuck marathon!
