Do your kids love chocolate chip cookies? Do you want to add more fiber and protein to their diet? Try these white bean cookies and your kids will eat them up and get fiber and protein at the same time. These cookies are sweet, soft and “cakey”.
Why combine beans in cookies? Well, I like to challenge myself with sneaking in some fun and nutritional ingredients into my baked goods. Don’t have a food processor? The recipe can easily be made by hand but you will need something to puree the beans (such as a blender). The key to the cookies is having them chill in the fridge for at least 3-4 hours…..Don’t feel like making cookies? No problem! Make these into cookie bars (just pour the batter into a greased 8 X 8 pan instead with no need to stick the batter in the fridge).
