Irresistible Double Chocolate Cookies

Double Chocolate Cookies
Black beans are the secret ingredient in these moist, cake-like cookies. Butter-free, sugar-free, and easy, these cookies are what my mom calls “irresistible!” I heartily agree.

1 (15 oz) can organic black beans, drained and rinsed
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
1 cup honey
2 eggs
1 Tbs vanilla
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
2 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt (or 1/2 tsp if not using organic beans)
3/4 cup semi-sweet mini chocolate chips

In a food processor, blend the black beans, coconut oil, honey, eggs, and vanilla until smooth (There will still be specks of beans). Add the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt; process until combined. Add the chocolate chips and pulse until distributed. Spoon cookie dough by heaping tablespoons onto baking trays. Bake at 350 for 9-10 minutes, or until cracked and beginning to set. Let cool on the tray for a couple minutes before transferring cookies to wire racks to cool.
