Chocolate Protein Cookies (a.k.a. The Healthiest Cookies Anyone Has Ever Made)
So Shawn and I are trying to eat healthier. It seems the whole world thinks we should cut back on sugar and wheat. Shawn is doing quite well with this, but I am a miserable sugar addict. I am working on it, and while I do these cookies are a huge help. They are low on sugar, diary-free, gluten-free, and high in protein. They are healthy enough that you could probably eat them for breakfast with little guilt. Translated: I've eaten them for breakfast without too much guilt.
The Healthiest Cookies Anyone Has Ever Made
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 Tbsp milk or water
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup assorted nuts or seeds
1. In a food processor fitted with the S blade, combine the first three ingredients on high until smooth. There may still be some small chunks of black bean skin and that is okay.
2. In a large bowl, mix the brown sugar, cocoa powder and baking powder. Add the ingredients from the food processor into the bowl and stir to combine. Add the nuts or seeds.
3. Bake at 350*F for about 20 minutes.
