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!

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 350°F Lightly coat two baking sheets with cooking spray.
  2. In blender, process oats until finely ground but not powdery. Combine with flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl.
  3. In 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.
  4. Vigorously by hand or with electric mixer on low speed, beat in oat and flour mixture. Stir in raisins (chocolate chips) by hand.
  5. Drop batter (by the tablespoon) onto baking sheets. Bake 15 to 17 minutes until centers are firm and edges are lightly browned. Transfer to wire rack to cool. Yum!
