Happy Herbivore Butter Bean Cookies
I tried Black Bean Brownies so wanted to try these chocolate chip cookies made with white beans. For what's in these (no oil, no refined sugar, no fat of any kind), they were great. I was pleasantly surprised at the texture. You could definitely tell there was something different going on with the Black Bean Brownies, but no one would guess there were beans in these cookies. Of course, they taste different from a regular chocolate chip cookie with all the oil and sugar, but these are pretty good for a low-fat cookie. Bonus: they have 1.3 grams of protein a piece! The recipe is on the Happy Herbivore website.
