Using Beans in Desserts & Aquafaba Whipped Cream - Allergy friendly recipes with Black Beans and Chickpeas (aka Garbanzo Beans)
There was a strong, strange trend on foodie blogs a few years ago of using canned chickpeas in dessert recipes as a complete or partial replacement for the flour. Surely you've heard of Black Bean Brownies (Chocolate Covered Katie's are my favorite). But have you tried them? Or maybe you've tried the delicious Chickpea Cookie Bars pictured below (recipe found here at The Honor System):

I am not much of a blog reader. There's only a couple I check on occasion:
Love this girl's writing... feels like she's a long distance friend. Well, her sister is my long-distance friend, so that probably helps. Either way, what an inspiration and encouragement- you just need to check out some of the places life has taken Leah and be strengthened and inspired by the love that oozes (yes, oooozes) from her heart for Jesus, His people and His creation!
If you like nummy recipes, or have special dietary needs (or both!) check it out. ALL of her recipes are Vegan, and many can be made gluten-free. I stumbled upon it when searching for dairy/egg free treats to make for my kiddo and have gotten hooked on several recipes. Okay, "hooked on" doesn't portray it well enough. How about "addicted to"? That's more fitting. Will definitely be going back for more!
