Using Pureed Beans As A Fat Replacer
Prep time: 
Total time: 
This recipe makes a 50% bean to butter replacement for your baked goods. This mixture is used to replace butter or oil in a recipe. If the recipe calls for 1 cup then use 1 cup of the mixture. If it calls for ½ cup butter than use ½ cup of this mixture. You get the idea :)
  • 1 - 16 ounce can of beans (cannellini, chickpea, pinto or black beans) drained and rinsed
  • 1 stick of butter at room temperature
  1. Drain and rinse the beans. Place in a colander and allow the extra water to drain off.
  2. Place the beans in a food processor and puree.
  3. Add the stick of butter and process until smooth.
  4. Since my muffin recipe calls for ½ cup of butter I simply scoop out ½ cup of the bean/butter mixture and place it in small plastic bags. Seal the bags and store in the freezer.
  5. If your making a recipe simply measure out the corrent amount of bean/butter mixture to use in place of the butter in the recipe. Pretend that the mixture is 100% butter and follow your recipe's directions.
