I haven't tried these yet, I'm posting as a request. The recipe comes from a cookbook called "Wholly Frijoles! - The Whole Bean Cookbook" by Shayne Fisher. note The yield amount was estimated!

I have made this recipe. and they are very easy..the dough is a little bland in tase..I would add a tsp of cinnamon..made about 48 cookies...added just a bit of walnuts, and more chipits.. But as far as rating the initial recipe, its not too bad, so I will give it a five star, becasue of the protien and nutrients..easiness, and no trouble with baking size and texture is all fine.
