Steps

  • In a small saucepan, combine lentils and 1 cup of water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until lentils are soft.
  • Transfer lentils to a food processor, add a few tablespoons of water, then process until lentils are a smooth puree; set aside.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray 9x9 inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Place oats in blender or food processor and process until finely ground and smooth like flour. Dont worry, it doesn't need to be perfect but it should take a few minutes.
  • Transfer to a large bowl and whisk in baking soda and salt; set aside.In a large bowl of electric mixer, mix together peanut butter, maple syrup, and vanilla until smooth.
  • Add in lentil puree and mix until well combined.Fold in oat mixture then gently fold in 1/3 cup of chocolate chips.
  • Pour batter into prepared baking pan and sprinkle remaining chocolate chips over the top.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes. Remember that you don't have to bake these completely as they are vegan, so if you like a fudgy bar don't keep them in the oven for much longer than 20 minutes! Cool brownies completely on wire rack then cut into 16 squares.
