  • 1 15 oz can black beans , rinsed and drained
  • 2 T . olive or melted coconut oil
  • 2 T . brown rice flour
  • 1/2 t . baking powder or baking soda (baking powder helps to hold the cookies together better, but baking soda gives a better taste to the cookie)
  • 1/2 t . sea salt
  • 6 T . cocoa powder
  • 4 T . coconut sugar (or another natural granulated sweetener)
  • 2 T . maple syrup or honey
  • 1 T . milk (I like using light coconut milk for its richness and flavor, but any will work)
  • 1/4 t . (scant) powdered stevia extract
  • 2 t . vanilla
  • 1/4 c . chopped dark chocolate


  • 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.
  • Enjoy!
