Chocolate Chocolate Chip Bean Cookies

cookies-contentIngredients:

1 can black beans

½ cup almond butter

¼ cup maple syrup (may also use organic agave syrup or raw honey)

2 tsp. vanilla extract

1 tsp. baking powder

2 tsp. raw cacao powder (adds iron, magnesium and antioxidants)

½ cup dark chocolate chips (dairy –free are a great option)


 

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 350. Combine all ingredients, except for the chocolate chips, in a food processor or a high-speed blender until very smooth.

Stir in chocolate chips by hand.

Use a melon ball scooper to scoop 1 ½ inch balls onto a piece of parchment paper.  You may push down on the cookies slightly to make them more like traditional cookies.

Bake for 10-15 minutes depending on how “done” you like your cookies.

They do not set like regular cookies, as they stay a little softer.

Store in an airtight container at room temperature or in the fridge for up to a week.
