  1. Preheat an oven to 180 degrees celsius (350F).
  2. Grease a 7 x 11 inch (18 x 28 centimetres, roughly) brownie pan and then line it with parchment paper. It doesn't hurt to grease the parchment paper, too.

  4. Add the rest of the ingredients, except for the chocolate, to the food processor. Blend well.
  5. Pour the batter into a bowl and fold in the chocolate.
  6. Bake at 180 degrees for 18 to 20 minutes, or until slightly golden brown on the top.
  7. Allow the bars to cool before cutting.
