2. White Bean Blondies

Red bean paste is a staple in Japanese sweets. Pureed beans add moisture and structure to cookies and bars, they replace much of the butter and flour, and when accompanied by sweet components (rather than onions and jalapeƱos) their mild flavor fades away and lets the other ingredients sing.

This recipe for White Bean Blondies uses a cup and a half of beans and 3/4 cup of oat bran resulting in a treat that is as nutritious as it is delicious.

Next: Black bean brownies.
