  1. 1 1/2 cups black beans (1 15-oz can, drained and rinsed very well)
  2. 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  3. 1/2 cup quick oats
  4. 1/4 tsp salt
  5. 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  6. 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  7. 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  8. 1/2 tsp baking powder
  9. 1/2 cup to 2/3 cup chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Combine all ingredients except chips in a good food processor, and blend until completely smooth. Really blend well. (A blender can work if you absolutely must, but the texture-and even the taste-will be much better in a food processor.)
  3. Stir in the chips, then pour into a greased 8×8 pan. Optional: sprinkle extra chocolate chips over the top.
  4. Bake the black bean brownies 15-18 minutes, then let cool at least 10 minutes before trying to cut.
