    That’s so cool. I love brownies (I too grew up on the box kind, and I still think they’re pretty damn good). I’ve eaten a lot of red bean mochis before, but I never considered beans as a substitute for butter. Woo hoo!! I’m hungry now.

    That’s a brilliant idea! I must try that. I might try it with red beans. I had a red bean brownie once in Japan that was delicious. Thanks for the tip.

    Thanks for this fantastic idea! I baked the most delicious brownies adapted from Nigella using only 2 tbsp oil and bean purée! Delicious!

    Thanks for the inspiration! These were fantastic– I can’t believe it’s not butter! What other recipes have you tried with bean puree?

    Pumpkinpie, this black-eyed pea cake is delicious. I’ve been meaning to make it again with different beans and fruit.

    Hi Jessica, have you tried these cookies? They were pretty popular with my husband and his colleagues. http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/230170

      Rachael, thanks for the recipe! I haven’t tried putting bean puree in cookies, but it’s on my list.

    Wow, these do sound really good. Get some good old nutrition in there, I like it! I’ve always liked the idea of using bean puree as a fat substitute but never really got around to experimenting with it.

    Actually, I’ve been trying to figure out good recipe for cookies containing adzuki or mung bean. My project is based on a TCM. Do you have any idea? Thanks in advance.

    Hi Jessica,

    Thanks for the bean brownie comment. I think your friend would like Heidie’s (no wheat) version. This one looks good too. I’m going to add it to the collection.
