Black Beans Choco-Coco Cookies
Updated: Jan 29, 2021
If you're trying to eat healthy, but you're always craving something sweet (like me hahah), here's the perfect recipe for you! These cookies are extra moist, chocolatey, and not too sweet, sooooo definitely perfect to help with that little sugar craving!
Last month when I was selling my Lindt cookies, I'm not gonna lie, I ate about 2-3 cookies per day hahah, sooo now my main craving is Lindt cookies. However, with these beauties, I can satisfy my cookie need whilst still staying on track with my diet!
For those wondering, it's 82 calories per cookie or 2 smart points in the blue plan for my WW family! And don't worry, for those who think this might be weird, the taste of the black bean is not extreme, you really feel as if you were eating a "normal" cookie.
Let's get into it! Hope you enjoy!
380g Black beans (cooked or canned)
40g Coconut oil (melted)
25g Cocoa powder
20g Almond Flour
1 ½tsp Baking powder
100g Milk chocolate chips (+ extra for garnish)
50g Shredded coconut (unsweetened) (+ extra for garnish)
-Preheat the oven at 350F.
-In the food processor, blend the black beans, the honey and the melted coconut oil.
-Add the eggs and blend again until homogeneous.
-Add the cocoa powder, almond flour and baking powder, then blend again.
-Transfer the mix in a bowl, then fold in the chocolate chips and shredded coconut.
-With an ice-cream scoop, scoop the portions onto a baking sheet covered with a silicone mat or parchment paper.
-Tap the baking sheet on a flat surface to flatten the raw cookies.
-Top each cookie with chocolate chips and shredded coconut.
-Put in the oven for 10 minutes.
-Take them out of the oven and transfer to a cooling rack.
-Now go ahead and have a taste!
-The black beans will be wayyy easier to crush in the food processor if they are warm.
-Also, if you're using canned black beans, make sure to rinse them.
-And if you're cooking them, it should take about 1h15 to cook!
-If your using parchment paper, make sure to put some type of sprayed fat so it doesn't stick.
-This recipe gives 29 medium sized cookies, to get this yield, I used an 1.5 inches scoop.
-In the pictures, the cookies are slightly bigger (2 inches scoop),took 18 minutes to cook.
-I retried my recipe, and for those who would like to have much more of a chocolate taste to the cookie, you can put a total of 200g of chocolate chips instead of 100g! However, the cookie becomes higher in calories and WW points.
That's it for this recipe! If you have any questions, feel free to DM me on instagram!
Hope you enjoyed!
