I’ve gone off the granola bar track but only temporarily as I try this fascinating recipe for chocolate chip bars. I am always interested in unusual recipes which have strange ingredients like the chocolate cupcakes I made with cooked rice as the starch. These chocolate chip bars include an ingredient that I would never have thought of for a sweet product – white beans. The bars turned out well and they are moist but they do have a distinctive flavour and you have to be okay with that. What I loved was that it was the simplest recipe to make. Every ingredient except the chocolate chips went into the food processor and got blended to a smooth paste. I love the simplicity of that. I found this recipe at Chocolate-Covered Katie. She is in the process of writing a cookbook on low-calorie baking and will probably be including this great recipe. For the full recipe, please visit her website.
