“Chocolate-covered raisins, cherries, orange slices and strawberries all count as fruit, so eat as many as you want.”
At my house, we always follow this rule.
Me being a chocoholic, I love chocolate in every form, but my absolute favourite are chocolate.covered orange peels or orange-flavored chocolate.
The other day my sister was making a cake and I suggested she cover it in orange-flavoured chocolate: the result was incredible!
So that same night, while I was falling asleep, an idea came to my mind: orange flavoured brownies!
A few days later I decided I would try making black bean brownies and add some orange flavouring and see what would come out!
1 cup black beans, cooked and drained
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 +1/8 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup applesauce
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp baking soda
2 tbsp oil
1-2 tsp vanilla extract
1-2 tsp orange extract or a few drops of orange essential oil (which is what I used)
Place everything in a blender or food processor and process until everything is well blended.
Place in baking pan and cook for at 350 F for 30 minutes, or until tooth-pick comes out clean.
The result is a dense and moist brownie with a hint of orange. Not too bad!
Question of the day:
Do you like chocolate covered fruit? which one is your favourite?
As I said before, my favourite are chocolate covered orange peels!
