TAKES 30 MINUTES MAKES 16 SQUARES
1 (400 grams) can red kidney beans, rinsed, drained, mashed 3 large eggs
3 Tbsp. oil
1 Tbsp. vanilla extract 2/3 c. brown sugar 1/2 c. cocoa powder 1/2 tsp. baking soda 1/4 tsp. salt
1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips 1/2 c. whole walnuts
1 Preheat oven to 350˚F. Line an 8”x8” baking pan with parchment paper. Lightly spray with oil. Set aside.
2 In a large bowl, using a whisk, mix beans, eggs, oil, vanilla extract, and sugar together until well combined. Sift cocoa powder and baking soda over the mixture then add salt. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet mixture using a spatula.
3 Add chocolate chips, and fold in until just blended. Pour mixture into the prepared baking pan. Arrange walnuts on top.
4 Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the middle emerges cleanly (discounting chocolate from the chocolate chips), about 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool completely on a cooling rack before removing parchment and cutting brownies into squares. Store in an airtight container.
