Double Chocolate Cookies (with black beans!)

Prep

Total

Yield 12 cookies

Most of the women I meet are not getting enough good quality protein in their diet each day.Ā 

Not enough protein = unhappy hormones, so it is essential that you find some delicious ways to get it in more often.

What is more delicious than chocolate cookies?! Maybe it's just me, but I can't think of many šŸ™‚

Black beans are one of my top 10 weight loss foods since they are high in both protein & fibre - and relatively low in calories.

Give these a try, even my 2-year-old loves them!

Ingredients

  • 2 cupsĀ Black Beans (cooked, drained and rinsed)
  • 2 tbspsĀ Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • 2 tbspsĀ Natural Peanut Butter
  • 2 tbspsĀ Coconut Oil (melted)
  • 1/4 cupĀ Coconut Flour
  • 1/4 cupĀ Cacao Powder
  • 1/4 cupĀ Raw Honey
  • 1/2 tspĀ Cinnamon
  • 1/8 tspĀ Sea Salt
  • 1/4 cupĀ Organic Dark Chocolate Chips

Instructions

1.Preheat oven to 375. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2.Measure out 1.5 cups black beans (or 3 cups if you are doubling the recipe). Combine black beans, almond milk, peanut butter and coconut oil together in a food processor. Blend until smooth.

3.Add in flour, cacao, honey, cinnamon and sea salt. Process again until creamy. Use a rubber spatula to gently stir in the chocolate chips.

4.Measure out even amounts of dough onto the cookie sheet (we use 2 tbsp per cookie) and use your hands to form into cookies. Sprinkle a few chocolate chips on each cookie and press down gently for good measure. Bake in the oven for 15 (chewy) to 20 minutes (crispy).

5.Remove from oven. Let cool and enjoy!
