Red Bean Paste "Brownies" (gluten free, dairy free, soy free, corn free, chocolate free..)



Using the term Brownie usually means chocolate in my mind, but I used the term anyway to describe the texture. These are a little more cake like.. almost more like a moist whacky cake(3 eggs make for more cake like)and while not big on any particular flavor other then sweet,made perfect vessels for dressing with other "toppings."

Coconut oil, red beans, and eggs make for a high protein and higher fiber brownie and coconut oil is just good for your body. One of the few fats Abby's body seems to tolerate and appreciate best.

We make our own red bean paste(very easy, a matter of cooking the beans to mush,puree, adding sugar and cooking down slowly to a paste.)and I have been trying to keep some on hand for adding a bit of goodness to more of her baked goods. Plus, we just love the stuff.. we eat a spoonful like you can eat a spoonful of peanut butter(which she lost peanuts again!). I have found freezing it works pretty well.

Abby has raspberries on rotation for now, not sure how much longer her body is going to allow this cycle but we have found a million ways to enjoy them! She doesn't tolerate them well raw we think because of the seeds and just the fact her body just doesn't like raw. I cook them, push them through a sieve then sweeten and finally thicken with a bit of water +potato starch.. the raspberry gel reminds us of the filling in raspberry donuts.. These would be tasty with applesauce, ice cream,caramel. Just on their own they are quick and satisfying bite. Red bean paste is a very mild flavor and goes well with any number of toppings.



Red Bean Paste "Brownie"

2 cups homemade red beans paste (or 1 can if you have a brand that is safe for you)
3 eggs
1/3 cup melted Tropical Traditions coconut oil
1/4 cup gluten free flour(homemade)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract(homemade)
1 cup C&H organic cane sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt(we use pink himalayan but you use what is safe for you)

Preheat oven to 350


Combine all the ingredients and place in very well greased 8x8 baking pan.

Bake for 35-40 minutes.(until just set in the center)

Allow to cool completely before cutting.

I meant to share again about "why" they are such a good add in to baked goods, I hope Ryan likes it. You can find canned red bean paste in Austin I think From Dr.Weil.com; "Like many other beans, adzukis are a good source of magnesium, potassium, iron, zinc, copper, manganese and B vitamins. Also of note is the adzuki's status as the "weight loss bean," since they are so low in calories and fat, yet high in nutrition. Additionally, they are relatively easy to digest, so they should not give you gas as other beans do."
