So my husband and I are connoisseurs of health chips. They could be made of seaweed, veggies, rice, you name it.
We became obsessed with reading the ingredients on the back of the bags, convincing each other we could make them ourselves!
SO! Like any curious couple would, we decided to experiment!
Beanitos. Crunchy, full of flavor and usually BOGO at your local supermarket!
Here is our spin on this delectable chip! With a few trial and errors of course!
It’s rather easy. Blend your beans to a fine flour consistency then add the other ingredients. Form a big dough ball and roll it out onto a lightly sprayed baking sheet (or try what we used, a Slipat! These are badass! A nonstick baking sheet? Yes! It’s so easy to clean and can be stored in the smallest of places!). The thinner your dough the crispier the chips will be.
We made this recipe twice. If you want a flatter chip make sure you blend your beans raw!
The second version of this recipe we used cooked beans to use up the ones we had in the fridge. The outcome of these were rather interesting! They puffed up and became very airy! Kinda cool!
2 cups black bean flour
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp baking powder
¼ cup melted coconut oil
water as needed
Blend your black beans into a flour. Or purchase black bean flour, whichever is easiest!. In a large bowl mix together your bean flour, salt, pepper and baking powder. Add your melted coconut oil and incorporate all ingredients into a dough. If it is too crumbly add small amounts of water at a time.
Put your dough on a baking sheet. Place wax paper over top and roll out your dough as thin as possible. Slice your dough into little triangles or desired shape of chips.
Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes until your chips are golden or your desired crispiness.
