15oz can Black Beans, rinsed and drained
2 Tbsp Olive or melted Coconut Oil
2 Tbsp Brown Rice flour
1/2 tsp Baking Powder or Baking Soda.
1/2 tsp Sea Salt
6 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
4 Tbsp Coconut Sugar
2 Tbsp Maple Syrup or Honey
1 Tbsp Coconut Milk
1/4 tsp Powdered Stevia
2 tsp Vanilla
1/4 Cup chopped Dark Chocolate
1 Scoop Chocolate Antioxidant Vegan Protein Powder
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Put all of the ingredients into a food processor in the order listed (except for the chopped chocolate).
Process until smooth and well combined (2-3 minutes), scraping down the sides as needed.
Using a spoon, scoop the dough out onto a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet (I get 12 decent-sized cookies).
Top each cookie with a sprinkle of the chopped dark chocolate.
Bake the cookies for 19-21 minutes.
Cool completely. This is VERY important, as it allows the cookies to set and hold together upon being picked up, as they have no binder or gluten.
