This recipe is one of my favorite to makes, partially because it’s delicious, and partially because I get to say “it’s made of BEANS!” after everyone tells me how wonderful it tastes.
It’s important that your beans are well cooked so they will blend smoothly. I soaked them and then cooked them overnight in my slow cooker but canned beans work wonderfully for this.
I need to do a couple more test runs to figure out what substitutions would work. (You can substitute butter for the coconut oil, avocado or vegetable oil for the sunflower oil, or substitute honey/agave for each other.) As of yet, I don’t know if a “chia egg” would work as a substitute for all of the eggs in this recipe.
