13 Unusual Bean Recipes ~ Desserts?!

I had a lot of fun finding this week's 13: Baked Bean Desserts! Betcha didn't know there were actually that many. I have linked each one to the recipe. I have only tried one or two, so I am not endorsing, just informing.
1. Spicy Bean Cake
2. Citrus Bean Cake (1 & 2 are variations of the same recipe and are found at the same site)
3. Pinto Bean Pie (like a mock pecan pie)
4. Pinto Bean Fudge
5. Black Bean Brownies
6. Pork & Beans Cake (I am not sure this sounds very good)
7. Garbanzo Bean Chocolate Cake (GF)
8. Butter Bean Custard Pie (mock pumpkin pie)
9. Cherokee Bean Bread (a quick bread)
10. Pinto Bean Bread (a yeast bread)
11. Oatmeal and Bean Raisin Cookies
12. Breakfast Bean Cookies
13. Bean Maple-nut Candy

If you decide to try any of these, be sure to come back and tell me about it. I am very curious!

Enjoy more thirteens here.

I'm thinking that if we try these recipes, we had better have some beano on hand! I have tried the black bean brownies, and they are very good!

I thought it was going to be all Japanese stuff. They get into a lot of sweet bean foods.

I never thought of beans and dessert together. The picture of the brownies looks good. Others here said they were. Maybe I'll try them sometime.

Karen said...

What an unusual and fascinating list. I love the uniqueness but just not sure if bean desserts appeal to my senses. Hubby would love them though so maybe I might try one or two.

Thanks for visiting my blog!

I found your blog through "It Must Have Been Something I Ate." Even though it's very late, I thought I'd comment.

I made the breakfast bean cookies, and they are amazing. Much better than plain oatmeal cookies. There were some tweaks, but the bean part stayed the same.

I think I'll have to try some more of these!
