Black Bean Brownies
1 and ¼ cup whole wheat pastry flour
½ cup cocoa powder

2 eggs and 2 egg whites
1 cup black beans--pureed (cooked dried beans or canned beans--no salt added, rinsed & drained)
3 tbsp canola (or other vegetable oil)
3 tbsp butter
½ cup dark chocolate chips (optional)
In medium size bowl or food processor, mix together pureed black bean, cocoa, butter, oil, agave and eggs. In a large bowl, sift together dry ingredients then mix into wet ingredients.
Pour batter into greased pan. Bake at 350 for 35 minutes or until done (toothpick inserted in middle comes out dry).
