Need brownies? No flour? No problem! We have a substitution. If you don’t tell anyone, they won’t know! These brownies are moist and oh-so-chocolatey!

This recipe was featured in the 2016 edition of The Old Farmer’s Almanac.

1 can (15 ounces) black beans, drained and rinsed, or 2 cups cooked
3 eggs
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 cup sugar
3 tablespoons vegetable oil, or 1-1/2 tablespoons olive oil and 1-1/2 tablespoons butter
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
pinch of salt
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and grease an 8x8-inch baking pan.

Put the first seven ingredients into a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.

Transfer to a bowl and stir in the chocolate chips and walnuts. Pour into the prepared pan.

Bake for 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
