  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. In a medium saucepan set over low heat, melt the butter with 1/3 cup of the chocolate chips, stirring often to keep it from burning. Set aside to cool for a few minutes.
  2. Spread the rinsed lentils out on a double thickness of paper towel and blot them gently to remove as much moisture as possible. Pick up the paper towel and pour the lentils into the bowl of a food processor. Add the eggs, sugar, vanilla, and slightly cooled butter-chocolate mixture, and pulse until the mixture is as smooth as possible.
  3. Pour back into the chocolatey saucepan (off the heat), add the flour, cocoa, and salt, and stir until just combined. Stir in the remaining chocolate chips.
  4. Pour the batter into an 8x8-inch pan that has been buttered or sprayed with nonstick spray. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until the edges are pulling away from the sides of the pan but the middle is still soft. Cool completely in the pan on a wire rack before cutting.


1/2 cup (125 mL) butter
