Preparation:

1.Preheat oven to 350 F.
2. Combine all ingredients, except choclate chips, in a food processor and blend until completely smooth. (A blender can work, but the texture – and even the taste – will be much better in a food processor.)
3. Stir choclate chips into the mixture, then pour into a greased 8" x 8" pan.
4. Optional: Sprinkle extra chocolate chips over the top.  
5. Bake brownies for 15 to 18 minutes, then let cool for at least 10 minutes before trying to cut.
