2 large eggs
1/3 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup cocoa
2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/3 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350°F. Place the black beans, sugar, eggs, melted butter, cocoa, vanilla and salt in the bowl of a food processor and blend until smooth, pulsing and scraping down the sides of the bowl to ensure all the beans are completely pureed. Remove the blade and gently stir in the chocolate chips and walnuts. Pour into an 8″x8″ pan that has been sprayed with non-stick spray. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until slightly puffed and set. Cool before cutting into squares. less

Cookies are not always round. In fact, just as many cookies come in bar shapes as they do circles. I happen to love serving bar cookies because they look a little neater and are always easy to eat. Plus, if you want to serve them for a fancy meal you can just cut them into smaller pieces and dust them with confectioners' sugar to make them look extra fancy! There are almost an infinite number of bar cookies that can be made at home. Here are twenty five of our absolute favorite for indulging! - By Kelsey Banfield
