Salted Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

5 from 1 reviews

These are not your everyday cookies, but you’d never guess how healthy they are.  Made without flour, refined sugar, or butter, these vegan cookies have a secret ingredient:  black beans!  Rich and fudge-like, the salted tops compliment the flavors perfectly.  A healthy way to indulge!  




  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly oil a cookie sheet and set it aside.
  2. Put all ingredients except chocolate chips and salt into your food processor and process until very smooth.  Your dough will be thick.  Stir in the chocolate chips.  Use a rounded tablespoon to scoop out the dough and then form it into a ball and flatten it to a cookie shape and place it on the cookie sheet.  {You can definitely just plop it down, but know they won’t flatten or spread at all and will keep that same plopped-down shape.}  Sprinkle each cookie with a pinch of salt.  Bake in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes.  Enjoy!


  1. Drain and rinse your black beans very well. This will minimize any bean flavor in your cookies.
  2. You can use a food processor or professional blender to break down the black beans, almonds, and dates for this recipe. I prefer Vitamix if you use a blender.
  3. Using stevia-sweetened chocolate chips will reduce the overall sugar content of this recipe. (The nutritional information is for regular chocolate chips.)
