Black Bean Fudge Cookies




Yes I am on a roll with these black beans: burgers, brownies, bites...
 and why not, they are awesome!

I feel so adventures and somewhat edgy when I pour beans into baked-goods batter;
So let's just say its the foodie adrenaline rush that keeps me going.

And a good thing, eh?
 Fudgy, Chocolate, Healthy, Cookies.
 Nothing more needs to be said. 


Ingredients: 
makes 24 cookies
 
1 can black beans
1/4 cup apple sauce
1/4 cup honey or agave
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
3 packets truvia (or 1/4 cup sugar or agave/honey)
1/2 tsp baking powder

Directions: 
Preheat oven 350 F. 
Line a 2 baking sheets with parchment paper
Pour everything into a food processor and and blend until smooth and creamy.
Spoon ~1tbs of wet mixture onto parchment paper and smooth out into a cookie shape. Repeat until pans are full.

Bake for 8-10 min.
Let cook on pan for 3 min--helps firm up.

The recipe is gluten and dairy free but if you don't have those dietary restrictions I encourage you to melt some chocolate on top  of them to experience ultimate chocolate bliss.


ENJOY!!!!
