1 15-ounce can of black beans
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
½ cup cocoa powder
½ teaspoon baking powder
Pinch of salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup mini chocolate chips


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Grease an 8-by-8-inch baking dish.

Drain and rinse black beans.

Process beans in a food processor until smooth and creamy.

Pour in oil and eggs and blend.

Blend in sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt and vanilla until all ingredients are mixed well.

Add ½ cup chocolate chips and pulse a few times until incorporated.

Spread the batter into the baking dish and smooth the top with a rubber spatula.

Sprinkle with ½ cup chocolate chips.

Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Do not over bake.
