Wholefood Gluten Free Aduki Bean Chocolate Brownies Recipe

What I love about these brownies is that although they are as rich and dense as the traditional variety, these are chock-full of goodness : the nutrition deprived ingredients in a typical brownie recipe are replaced by highly nutritious whole foods. Protein, Fibre, Folate, Manganese, Phosphorus, Potassium and Copper - rich Aduki (or Adzuki, or Azuki) beans instead of white floor. Fibre, Vitamin E, Manganese and Copper - rich hazelnuts, instead of extracted vegetable oil or butter. And finally, they are sweetened with whole dates, instead of white sugar or other extracted sweeteners. Grain free, gluten free, can be made vegan ... Yet, as good as chocolate brownies get. But you don't have to take my word for it, try this recipe for yourself !
