While Liv is napping and M is at "school" I thought I would post this fun recipe.
Thanks to my lovely mother-in-law for the recipe and the already pureed beans!
Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
The Daily Bean by Suzanne Caciola White
1-15.5 oz can great northern beans, drained and rinsed
2 Tbs water
1 Tbs plus 2 tsp vanilla, divided
1 ¾ cups flour
¾ tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp baking powder
2 sticks butter (I used one stick and then 1/2 cup oil/applesauce mixture)
1 ½ cups brown sugar
2 large eggs
3 ½ cups old fashioned rolled oats
6 oz bag chocolate chips (1 cup)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place beans, water, and 1 Tbs vanilla into food processor and process until smooth. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and baking powder. In a separate bowl, cream together the butter and brown sugar. Add eggs and vanilla and blend until creamy. Mix in the bean mixture. Add butter and bean mix to the flour and stir until well mixed. Add the oatmeal and chocolate chips. Drop the dough by heaping Tbs onto a greased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake for 6-9 minutes or until light golden brown.
This makes a huge batch! And they are very filling with all that fiber/protein so you might not eat as many as you would with other cookies;)
