Don't knock these until you try them! Being a vegetarian, I try to find as many ways as possible to get extra protein in my diet--the beans add a savory texture to these cookies, and you won't miss the fat from the missing butter!

- 1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats

- 2In blender, process oats until finely ground but not powdery. Combine with flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl.
- 3In cleaned blender, puree beans (adding bean liquid if needed) until smooth. Combine bean puree, butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla in a separate bowl and mix very thoroughly.
