Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ooey goey chocolate chip cookie!

black bean cookies

I love to experiment with baking and using recipes that use little flour and no butter. But when you use little flour and no butter it can be hard to get a soft and goey cookie, like these. There is another secret ingredient in these chewy chocolate chip cookies… black beans again! They are very similar to the black bean brownies I made but I think I like these a tiny bit better.

If you still haven’t black bean cookies tried baking cookies with black beans yet, give it a try! Don’t worry they do not taste like black beans. If they did, I probably wouldn’t like them very much! You are basically tricking your mind and you get to skip the heavy flour and butter! Some cookies have a whole stick of butter, which is fine, but these are low-carb! The texture of these cookies is similar to brownies.

I love to bake! So I need to find substitute as often as possible. I have been wanting to try using avocados in a chocolate mouse! Stay tuned.

  • 15 12ounces canned black beans, rinsed and drained

What to do:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper, silicon sheets, or foil and baking spray.
  2. In a food processor combine: black beans, olive oil, peanut butter, vanilla extract, milk, sugar, flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and cinnamon. Blend until very smooth. Stir in the dark chocolate chips by hand with a spatula.
  3. Using a cookie scoop or a heaping tablespoon make cookies and place on cookie tray. Bake for 12-15 minutes (they will still be a little soft when you take them out). Let cool 5-10 minutes before removing from tray. I tried a bit too early an they were still to warm to move.
