I saw a similar recipe to these in The Toddler Cookbook, by Jennifer Garden. Since I had the main ingredients on hand, I thought I would go ahead and give it a try. Turns out my son really enjoyed
- 1/2 Can of Black Beans, drained (15oz Cans, used 1/2)
- 1/4 Cup of Sugar
- 1/4 Cup of Brown Sugar
- 2 Tbsp of Butter
- 1/4 Tsp of Baking Powder
- 1 Egg
- 1 Tsp of Vanilla
- Crushed Graham Crackers or Powdered Sugar to dust on the truffles
Mix together the beans, sugar, brown sugar, butter, baking powder, and vanilla. Use a mixer or food processor to mix these ingredients, then mix in the egg. Pour each one into a greased pan, the book calls for an 8×8 pan. I actually used a cupcake pan.
Bake it in the oven for 30 minutes. Let it cool for about 15 minutes. Then, I sprinkled crushed graham cracker on the top. You can cut the truffles out almost like brownies, or you can use a spoon or ice cream scooper to make balls out of them.
I did not have powdered sugar on hand; however, that’s a good item to sprinkle on them.
I was really skeptical of these; however, my son was not. He was ready for more!
