Recipe

After making and loving the black bean brownies – I knew there must be some more sweet treats out there that I could by secretly adding beans. After some digging, I found a recipe on The Happy Herbivore for oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, my absolute favorite cookie, that uses blended butter beans. I was skeptical, but gave it a try anyway and they turned out really well. They are sweet enough that they work great with milk as a treat but also are hearty enough that they work great for a quick breakfast with some fruit or an afternoon snack. Even better sandwich some vanilla ice cream between delicious.
