Ingredients

  • Almond Meal– 1 cup.
  • Baking Soda– 1 teaspoon.
  • Baking Powder– 1 teaspoon.
  • Salt- ÂĽ teaspoon.
  • Black Beans– 1 ½ cups cooked and cooled.
  • Canola Oil– ÂĽ cup.
  • Agave Nectar– ½ cup. You can use maple syrup instead. Unsweetened Cocoa Powder– ½ cup
  • Lemon Juice- 1 teaspoon.
  • Dark Chocolate Chips– ½ cup.

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 and prep a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, use a whisk or a fork to blend together the almond meal, baking soda, baking powder, and the salt.
  • Next, use a food processor or strong blender to blend together the black beans, canola oil, agave, unsweetened cocoa powder, and lemon juice.
  • Transfer the contents from the food processor to a mixing bowl and stir in the dry ingredients from the first bowl. Then fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Use a scoop to scoop the batter into small balls to place on to the prepped cookie sheet. Add additional chocolate chips if desired.
  • Bake these cookies for 15 minutes or until they are done baking. When they are done they will still be soft. If unsure, try moving a cookie and if it feels like it is holding its shape then they are done. Allow the cookies to sit on the baking sheet for a few minutes before removing.

Recipe Notes

I mentioned that these cookies are made with canola oil, which is both vegan and friendly to the Mediterranean diet. Vegan only folks can use melted coconut oil instead.
Also mentioned was that these cookies are not sweetened with sugar.
This recipe is sweetened with agave nectar. Feel free to substitute this with maple syrup or your favorite liquid sweetener. Read the label to make sure that it will measure 1:1 with maple syrup or agave.
