Finding a good, soft cookie that is safe for my monkeys has not been easy. Making it Milk-Free posted a recipe for a delicious looking Chocolate Brownie Cookie that sounded delicious. So with a few slight modifications, I whipped up a batch.
Black beans, drained and rinsed well
2 Tbsp rice milk
1 1/2 Tbsp peanut-free almond butter (I used Barney Butter)
2 Tbsp canola oil
3 Tbsp gluten-free flour (I used King Arthur Flour Gluten Free Multi-purpose Flour)
1/4 c cocoa
1/2 c honey
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
Dash of cinnamon
Dash of salt
1/3 c allergen-free chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life)

The first time I made these, I used my manual food processor. It took a long time to puree the black beans, and my hand got tired. This time I blended them in my Magic Bullet, and the cookies turned out with a much smoother texture (and it was easier on me).
