Double Chocolate Cookies (with black beans!)
Yield 12 cookies
Most of the women I meet are not getting enough good quality protein in their diet each day.
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 🙂
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!
- 2 cups Black Beans (cooked, drained and rinsed)
- 2 tbsps Unsweetened Almond Milk
- 2 tbsps Natural Peanut Butter
- 2 tbsps Coconut Oil (melted)
- 1/4 cup Coconut Flour
- 1/4 cup Cacao Powder
- 1/4 cup Raw Honey
- 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp Sea Salt
- 1/4 cup Organic Dark Chocolate Chips
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!
No Cacao? Use Cocoa powder instead!
