  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a 8″ square dish by lightly oiling it, and placing parchment paper in to prevent sticking.
  • Prepare the flax eggs by whisking the water and flax meal together. Let it sit for 5 minutes to gel.
  • Into a blender add the maple syrup, oil, vanilla extract, black beans, cocoa powder, almond flour, baking powder, and sea salt. Blend until smooth. Scrape the sides down as needed.
  • When the brownie batter is smooth, mix in the chocolate chips.
  • Pour into the prepared dish. Sprinkle extra chocolate chips on top if you’d like!
  • Bake for 28-30 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out nearly clean.
  • Allow cooling before slicing into. Enjoy!
