I love cookies, but then, who doesn’t? The other day I brought these peanut butter chocolate chip cookies made with white beans into work. I didn’t tell my colleagues at first and when I did, they were surprised to find out that there were white beans in them. I am not claiming that they are “good” for you or they taste exactly like a bakery cookie, but it does add some good nutrition to a cookie.
You can also omit the peanut butter and peanut butter chips to have chocolate chip cookies with white beans. For some other healthier cookie recipes check out these 10 cookie recipes to reduce your sweet tooth guilt.
