  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F . Lightly grease an 8×8 square baking pan. Combine the black beans, eggs, oil, cocoa powder, salt, vanilla extract, and sugar in blender or use a hand blender to combine and blend thoroughly. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle the chocolate chips over the top of the mixture (I omitted this step) Bake in the preheated oven until the top is dry and the edges start to pull away from the sides of the pan, about 30 minutes.
