Heat the oven at 160 degrees Celsius. Melt the 70% cocoa vegan dark chocolate. Place the drained beans in a food processor until you get a cream. 

Weigh the dry and wet ingredients in two separate bowls except the chocolate drops and the pistachios. Then whisk together in a larger bowl, add the melted dark chocolate and combine the vegan chocolate drops and the whole pistachios.


Pour the mixture into a 20X20 cm baking pan lined with parchment paper. Use a spatula to spread it to all four sides and to smooth the top. 

Bake for 30-35 minutes. 

The brownie has to be hard outside but soft inside. Don't overcook it. Allow it to cool until the next day before slicing.
