Not all my baking attempts turn out. Particularly since I have been trying for vegan AND gluten free recently. There have been some winners, but there have been lots of losers. I just don’t talk about those as much.
Last weekend I attempted a garbanzo bean brownie based on the popular black bean brownie recipes out in the blogosphere. I used bananas as some of the sweetener to cut down on the added sugars and basically they turned into banana brownies with a slightly funny consistency.
I cut a brownie into little pieces and layered it with vanilla soy ice cream. A spritz of rice whip on top and I had a fabulous brownie sundae! E and I both enjoyed it. Mark still thought the texture was off putting, but I was glad to have found a way to not throw out a pan of brownies!
And for the record E and I did eat a few just as brownies. They were better having sat for a day or so in the fridge. Still not a recipe worthy of posting but one I might tinker with.
Have you ever had a kitchen fail turn into something pretty good? I’d love to hear about it!
