Optional: additional chocolate chips for presentation
Preheat oven to 350 F. Line an 8x8 pan with parchment paper.
Combine all ingredients, except for the chocolate chips, in a blender or food processor. Blend until completely smooth. The batter may contain a few bits of oats, but that’s okay. They will soften while baking.
Stir in the chocolate chips, then pour into the 8×8 pan. Sprinkle extra chocolate chips over the top, if desired. Cook the black bean brownies for approximately 17-20 minutes, or until a fork comes out clean.
Let cool at least 10 minutes before cutting them into squares.
