This recipe is from Calouste over at See her recipe or follow the recipe here (with my additions and improvements in red):
I've put the recipe below, but, truly, save yourself the trouble and DON'T MAKE THIS! It tastes nothing like chocolate. It tastes like black bean cake. It is grosser then gross. I couldn't wash my mouth out fast enough. Never again.
Gluten-Free Black Bean Brownies
1 (15 1/2 ounce) can black beans (rinsed and drained)
3 eggs
3 Tbsps oil
4 Tbsps cocoa powder
1 pinch salt
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup sugar
1) Mix ingredients together in a blender/food processor until pureed.
2) Pour into a greased 8 x 8 cake pan.
3) Stir in some chocolate chips and nuts, or leave plain. (I left mine plain to see what kind of canvas I was working with.)
4) Bake at 350F for approximately 30 minutes.
5) Let cool completely before cutting.

Thoughts: Only make this is you really LOVE black beans in cake form, because that is exactly what it tastes like. Since my lowest rating is 1 pin, I will, indeed, give it 1 pin. If I could go lower, I so totally would.
