"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!"
Serving Size: 1 (1154 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 1
"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."
"delicious! I also substituted in some brown flour and used 3/4 cup lightly packed brown sugar. I also substituted half the chocolate chips for chopped pecans. They turned out nice and springy. You'd never guess there's beans in them! Baked at 175C for 14 minutes."
"These cookies are great on so many levels! I used 1 cup all-purpose flour, 3/4 whole wheat, and added about 1/4 tsp cinnamon based on andypandy's suggestion. Hubby and niece love these!
I love sending these to school with my niece, I know how important protein and healthy foods are for learning!"
"Oh my gosh, these cookies were surprisingly good. Don't laugh I had 1 cup of navy beans left over from recipe #55796 Healthy Bean & Kale Soup and I went on a hunt to find a recipe that wasn't soup or baked beans. This was the winner! I followed the recipe as stated substituting with Splenda Brown Sugar, 1/2 carob chips and 1/2 raisins. Super easy to make, baked them for 12 minutes at 375 for golden brown cookies."
"If you're looking for a healthy snack, these are really good. I made them for my 1 year old baby who is refusing to eat protein. These cookies did the trick. I made some changes so that they would be even healthier for a baby- 1/2c sugar, 3/4c whole wheat flour, 1c all-purpose flour, and deleted the chocolate chips. Thanks for sharing!"
