    1 oz 70% or greater Dark Chocolate
    1.5 cups Reduced/low sodium canned black beans- rinsed and drained

Combine black beans, oil, honey, applesauce & vanilla extract in a food processor and process until creamy smooth. Add cocoa powder, melted chocolate, eggs & baking powder and blend until smooth. Pour mixture into the prepared baking dish.
