Black Bean Brownies

The reaction to these brownies at school is priceless...jaws dropped in disgust. But then I catch them licking the bowl - proud teaching moment:) These are delicious and changing the sugar and flour would help too

Black Bean Brownies
½ can black beans
½ c. vegetable oil
2 eggs
¼ c. cocoa powder
2/3 c. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
½ c. chocolate chips
1/3 c. flour
½ tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. salt

1. Preheat oven to 350*, grease a 9x9 pan
2. In a blender, puree beans with the oil. Add the eggs, cocoa, sugar, and vanilla
3. Melt HALF the chocolate chips, add chocolate to blender. Blend on medium high until smooth
4. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Add to the blender and pulse until just incorporated
5. Stir in the remaining chocolate chips.
6. Pour into the pan, bake until an inserted fork comes out clean, about 25 minutes
7. Serve a la mode – with ice cream
