This recipe comes from the USU Extension Food Sense program. Since I will be working
at the extension for the summer, I will share canning tips as I learn more.
Awesome Heart-Healthy Oatmeal Cookies
3/4 c mashed white beans
3 TB canola oil
3/4 c brown sugar
1/2 c granulated sugar
1/4 c egg substitute or 1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
3 c oats (I used rolled quick oats)
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp soda
1 tsp cinnamon
Optional: Nuts, coconut, raisins, and/or chocolate chips with dry ingredients.
Beat mashed white beans, oil, brown and granulated sugar, egg and vanilla until smooth and creamy.
Combine remaining dry ingredients in a separate bowl and mix together. Add to bean and sugar mixture: mix well.
Drop onto greased cookie sheet and bake at 350*F for 8-12 minutes. Cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes then transfer to wire rack and cool completely.
Makes about 36 cookies.
Caution about this recipe--mine didn't turn out very well. I used white kidney beans and I am pretty sure these are not the right ones. My other option at the store was white beans with seasoning; pretty sure those wouldn't have been very good either. If you have tried this recipe before, please let me know how to make it work!
I didn't get a picture because my camera is broken. Sorry guys, I haven't done very well this week, but this recipe does have good reviews and I have eaten them before and you can't even taste the beans.
