Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Cups (White Bean Cookies)
 
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
 
These cookie cups taste best when warm. I recommend warming them up in the microwave for 10-25 seconds before munching on them for maximum ooey, gooey chocolate chip cookie goodness. Adjust cinnamon or vanilla to taste. Adjust honey/syrup by the tablespoon if you prefer a very sweet cookie (these cookies are moderately sweet). Make sure to rinse your bean before adding them to the food processor to achieve maximum cookie taste!

Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Serves: 12 cookie cups
Ingredients
  • 2½ cups rinsed white beans (or chick peas)
  • ⅓ cup honey, agave, or maple syrup (honey not for strict vegans)
  • ½ cup all natural peanut butter (or peanut butter substitute)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 2½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1½ tsp cinnamon
  • ⅓ cup plus 2-3 tbsp chocolate chips (extra tbsp for sprinkling on top)
Directions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350f / 180c.
  2. Add all the ingredients (except for the chocolate chips) to a food processor in order and blend away until you get a very smooth batter. Carefully scrape sides when necessary. Batter should be thick like cookie dough. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  3. Grease a muffin tan with a non-sticking cooking spray or coconut oil. Scoop approximately 2 tablespoons of batter into each muffin tin. Use the back of a spoon to smooth out the tops. Sprinkle a few of the remaining chocolate chips on each cookie cup.
  4. Bake for 10 - 15 minutes until the tops are turning a slight golden brown.
  5. Take out of the oven and leave to cool in tin slightly for about 3 -5 minutes. Scrape around the cookie cups with a knife to loosen up any edges that are sticking to the pan. Once the cookie cups have cooled, carefully lift each one out of the muffin tin, propping them up with a knife, onto a plate.
  6. Devour, Share and Enjoy :)
