  • 2/3 cup (150 mL) all-purpose flour
  • Pinch salt
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) baking powder
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) cocoa

Preheat oven to 175 C (350 F). Lightly oil a 13x9x2 inch (33x 23×5 cm) pan.

Sift dry ingredients together in a bowl. In a food processor, combine cocoa, margarine, sugar, black bean, eggs and vanilla. Blend until well mixed with little or no bean texture left. Stir wet mixture into dry ingredients until moist. Pour the batter into the pan.

Bake for 30 minutes or until a knife comes out cleanly. Store these moist brownies in the fridge.
