My son said these are the best Brownies he ever ate without knowing that they are made with cooked beans. When i told him about the secret ingredient, he replied it doesn't even taste like beans, well that's exactly we all felt. Million thanks to Melissa of Foodnetwork for this awesome recipe.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Whisk the flour , baking powder and salt in a bowl and set aside.Melt half of the chocolate chips, set aside. In a blender puree the beans with oil.
