Lots of people have requested the brownie recipe I made on Anderson’s show last Friday. Here it is…spinach and all.
Prep time: 15 minutes
Total time: 55 minutes
Makes: 12 brownies
Nonstick cooking spray
3 ounces semi-sweet or bittersweet chocolate
1/2 cup carrot puree
1/2 cup spinach puree
1/2 cup firmly packed light or dark brown sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tablespoons trans-fat-free soft tub margarine spread
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 large egg whites
3/4 cup oat flour, or all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Coat an 8x8-inch baking pan with cooking spray.
Melt the chocolate in a double boiler or over a very low flame. In a large bowl, combine the melted chocolate, vegetable purees, sugar, cocoa powder, margarine, and vanilla, and whisk until smooth and creamy, 1 to 2 minutes. Whisk in egg whites.
Stir in the flour, baking powder, and salt with a wooden spoon. Pour the batter into the pan and bake 35 to 40 minutes. Cool completely in the pan before cutting into 12 bars.
For the carrots: Peel, trim the ends, and cut into 3-inch chunks. Steam for 10 to 12 minutes until very tender. Puree in a food processor or blender for about 2 minutes until smooth, adding a few teaspoons of water, if needed, for a smooth texture.
For the spinach, remove any tough stems. Steam for 30 or 40 seconds, or cook in a skillet with 1 tablespoon water for about 90 seconds until wilted. Puree in a food processor or blender for about 2 minutes until smooth and creamy.
