I am a brownie queen.
Always have been.
I like tangerines.
Okay, rhyming stops there.
But really, I rock at making brownies. As a kid when I first started baking, one of my first endeavors were brownies. I used my mother's tried and true recipe, and the result, was stupendulous. My father raved, and raved, about how far superior they were to my mom's brownies. But not to her face, my father is not that mean.
But I had to agree. Mine were gooey and chewy but not in a salmonella kind of way. I had a gift.
And that gift was to make amazing brownies.
I've since moved from my mothers brownie recipe, full of butter and eggs, for an even yummier vegan brownie. (Thanks, Paulina!)
But baking from scratch, while awesome and fulfilling and delicious, is time consuming and requires a lot of clean up. And as a student with NO FREE TIME who just finally tackled a ginormous mountain of dishes (that had maybe been pilling up for weeks) over the weekend, i'm not spending precious internet time slumped over a sink covered in suds.
Enter the easiest brownie recipe ever, courtesty of Busy Bee Lauren. I saw this a while back and it's always been floating around in my mind grapes to give it a try.
So tonight, I made brownies.,
Take your beans, and brownie mix. Blend beans with one cup of water, then add to brownie mix and combine.
Throw some chocolate chips in there, cause the only acceptable addition to brownies is chocolate.
Enjoy the delicious batter. Wonder if making out with a spatula counts toward your number...
then realize your number is still less than any teenager these days, and that you just got more action with your spatula than you did on your super awkward and terrible date this weekend. Such is the life of a spinster.
LAUGH at how little dishes you have to clean. TAKE THAT, DISHES!!
Then enjoy a delicious warm brownie.
But for the record, while these brownies were delicious, this vegan brownie recipe is still the best ever.
Take it from me.
I'm the brownie expert.
