Preheat oven to 200deg. Line an 8×8 tin with baking paper and spray lightly with coconut oil. Set aside.

Once your beans have been rinsed and drained, process in food processor and add remaining ingredients except for the chocolate. Ensure you keep pulsing mixture in food processor until it’s all evenly combined. Scrape out into a bowl and set aside.

Chop up chocolate into ‘choc chip’ sizes or alternatively you can grate finely. Add to brownie mixture and stir.

Scoop and spread mixture evenly into pan and place in oven for approx. 20min. Use the ‘knife’ test to tell when brownies are ready. Slice into 6 brownie pieces or 9 squares.
