Flourless Brownies

We love the chocolate-chocolate desserts at our house.
I mean LOVE them.
The more chocolate-y the better.
So I found this recipe for flourless brownies. They are rich and delicious. This was our Father's Day treat.
It's also a great recipe to give to people who would like to make a GF dessert because it doesn't call for any "weird" flours or ingredients.
I topped our brownies with hot fudge icecream topping, Cool Whip, Strawberries and Raspberries. Good thing I run...
Enjoy! It's fabulous!

Flourless Brownies

1 1/4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 can (15 oz) garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
3 egg whites
1 egg
2 T. canola oil
1 1/2 t. vanilla
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 t. baking powder
Dash of salt
1/2 cup chopped walnuts, optional

In the microwave, melt chocolate chips; stir until smooth.
Place, beans, egg whites, egg, oil and vanilla in a food processor. Cover and process until smooth.
In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, baking powder and salt; add to bean mixture. Cover and process until combined. Gradually add the chocolate. Process until blended.
Pour batter into a 9 inch square pan coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle with walnuts if desired. Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out with moist crumbs. (Do not overbake!) Cool completely on a wire rack.
I found these taste better if refrigerated for a few hours. Enjoy!
