Preheat oven to 175 degrees C / gas mark 4. Lightly grease a 20cm square baking tin.
Combine the black beans, eggs, oil, cocoa powder, salt, vanilla extract, sugar and instant coffee in a blender; blend until smooth; pour the mixture into the prepared tin. Sprinkle the chocolate chips over the top of the mixture.
Bake in the preheated oven until the top is dry and the edges start to pull away from the sides of the pan, about 30 minutes.
I bought a packet of dried black turtle beans as I am trying to be more healthy and they have a high fibre content. After looking up many recipes I found this one and was very keen to try it. I was more than suprised at the taste and texture of the brownies, incredible. I will be passing this recipe onto family and friends. Thankyou - 01 Dec 2011
