It's Monday, so it must be game 3 of the Canuck's run to the cup! Ok, that's out of my system. Won't mention it again today.
I baked these over the weekend, and I didn't feel half as bad eating almost a dozen since. They're made with white bean puree instead of heaps of butter. Believe it or not, they're not dry and you don't taste bean either!
Oatmeal, Chocolate Chip and Walnut Cookies - makes about 36-40
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cup ground quick oats
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup drained white beans (save liquid) - any white bean will do. I used white kidney.
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 350f/180c. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. In a food processor, or blender, grind oats until finely ground but not "dusty".
Mix oats, flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl. Puree the beans with 2 tablespoons of the saved liquid, until smooth. Combine puree, butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla in a separate bowl and beat well. On low speed, mix in the oat and flour mixture. Stir in the chocolate chips and walnuts by hand. Drop batter by the tablespoons, on the parchment paper lined baking sheets.
Bake for about 13-15 minutes, or until edges are lightly browned. Allow to cool on wire racks. Enjoy!
These are really tasty. Hope you give them a go!
