In a large bowl, place the cocoa powder, baking Powder, salt and sweenter of choice, and whisk to combine well. Create a well in the center of the cocoa powder mixture and add the pureed bean mixture. Mix until well-combined. Add about half of the (optional) chocolate chips and nuts to the batter and mix to combine. The mixture will be thickly pourable.
♥Pour the mixture baking pan and spread into an even layer. add the remaining (optional) chocolate chips and nuts evenly on top of the batter, and press down gently to help the chips adhere.
♥Bake in the center of the preheated oven and bake until the top springs back when pressed gently with a finger (about 25 minutes). Remove the pan from the oven, place it on a wire rack (still in the pan) and allow to cool until no longer hot to the touch. Remove from the pan and slice into squares with a sharp knife.
