I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Secret Ingredient Bran Chocolate Muffins

No one will ever guess what the secret ingredient is. 
Trust me.

And these muffins don't rise a lot but are surprisingly light.

You'll need:

3 cups all bran cereal
2  1/2 cups water

1  - 19 oz can black beans, drained (really!)
2 large eggs
1/4 cup melted butter
1/4 cup cocoa
1 tsp vanilla
2/3 cup sugar

1/2 cup chocolate chips

Add the water to the bran cereal and set aside for 5 minutes.

Take the rest of the ingredients, except the chocolate chips, and process in a food processor until smooth.

Mix together with the bran.
Fill muffin papers 2/3 full.
Sprinkle chocolate chips on top

and bake in a 350F oven for 25 minutes.

Makes 24

Here's another recipe made with beans:
