Black Bean Brownies (school safe and protein packed)!

1 can black beans (drained and rinsed)
2 Tbsp cocoa (or carob)
1/2 cup quick oats
1/3 cup maple syrup
1 package stevia
1/4 coconut oil
2 tsp vanilla (or 1/8 tsp vanilla powder)

* 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Place all ingredients  in a food processor except chocolate chips.  Blend thoroughly (for 2-3 minutes) remembering to scrape the sides in between processing.

Pour into an 8" square pan that has been lined with parchment paper.  Sprinkle chocolate chips on top.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes (until toothpick comes out clean).

Kudos to Katie for the recipe
