Absurdly Healthy Black-Bean Brownies

I've been playing around lately with a lot of variations of Chocolate Covered Katie's Chocolate-Chip Blondie recipe.  This black-bean and chocolate version is perhaps my favorite so far.

The Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups cooked black beans (rinsed well if canned)
1/2 cup + 1 T sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup applesauce
1/4 cup flour (I used rice flour)
1/4 cup ground flax
1 t baking powder
1 1/2 t vanilla extract
1/4 t salt
1/2 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped
1 handful chocolate chips

The Process:
  1.  Preheat oven to 350°, and spray an 8x8 square pan with oil.
  2. Combine everything except the walnuts and chocolate chips in a food processor and process until smooth, about 1-2 minutes.
  3. Add walnuts and pulse a few times to mix them in.
  4. Spread batter in pan, and bake 35-38 minutes, until the edges start to pull away from the sides of the pan.
  5. Sprinkle the brownies with chocolate chips, and try to let them cool before you gobble them up.
