Black Bean Brownies {Gluten Free}

Are you ready for the best chocolaty, delectable, light and cakey gluten free brownies ever?  My amazing hubby came up with this "from scratch" recipe and these are delicious!  Have you ever tried adding black beans to brownies?  We've tried it a few times before and I was never a big fan of the beanie taste.  By blending the beans with the wet ingredients in a blender and using good quality chocolate the "bean" flavor is really undetectable.  I'm sure if you don't reveal the secret ingredient no one would ever guess they were enjoying the added fiber and protein of black beans in their dessert.  If you are wanting a sweet chocolaty treat these should be next on your list to try.  Enjoy!

Recipe: (makes about 9 brownies)
3 Tablespoons butter, melted
3 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons good quality vanilla extract
1/4 cup chocolate flavored Rice Dream rice milk, may also substitute milk or any other milk substitute
1 (14oz) can black beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup Ghirardelli premium unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup Gluten Free flour (we used the Gluten Free Pantry brand all purpose Gluten Free flour)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup good quality semi sweet chocolate chips (we used Guittard)
1. In a blender add melted butter, 3 eggs, vanilla extract, rice milk and black beans (drained and rinsed), blend until well combined and smooth.
2. In a large bowl whisk together the dry ingredients; cocoa powder, GF flour, baking powder, sugar and salt until combined.
3. Add the liquids from the blender to the dry ingredients in the bowl and stir until well combined.
4. Spray an 8x8 glass baking dish with cooking spray and pour batter in evenly. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top and bake in a 350'F oven for 24-28 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
