  • 1/2 c. cooked black beans (drained and rinsed, if from a can)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 c. water
  • 1/2 c. vegetable oil
  • 1 19 1/2 oz. package chocolate fudge brownie mix
  • 1/2 c. mini chocolate chips, divided


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Spray a 9 x 9 inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  • Place the black beans in the bowl of a food processor; process until smooth and creamy. Add the eggs, water, oil, and brownie mix; process until just smooth. Stir in 1/4 c. of the chips.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish and sprinkle the top with the remaining chocolate chips.
  • Bake 30-35 minutes, or until the edges start to pull away from the sides and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in the pan before slicing.
