1 (15 oz) can of black beans, drained and rinsed
1 Large egg
2 Large egg whites
2 extra ripe avocado
1 tsp olive oil or canola oil
2/3 c. unsweetened cocoa powder (Use high quality cocoa powder!)
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp sea salt
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 c. brown sugar (I didn’t use )
1/3 c. chocolate chips of choice, plus 2 tbsp for topping (I didn’t use)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8×8 inch baking pan.
Place all of the ingredients except for the chocolate chips in a high powered blender or food processor. Process until a smooth batter is formed. If the mixture is too thick, add in a teaspoon or two of water.
Add in the 1/3 cup of chocolate chips and fold into the batter. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and sprinkle the remaining 2 tbsp of chocolate chips on top (or other topping of choice!).
Bake for 25-35 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out mostly clean and the top of the brownies begin to crack.
Let the brownies cool completely and cut into 12 bars.
