Diet Cookies and Brownies

Here is a little recipe I whipped up so that my kids could make Santa a healthy treat for the big night.  This way, my kids can be a part of the baking tradition and lick and taste without guilt or a hardcore sugar crash.  Enjoy!  And a very Merry Christmas to all!

Flourless Cocoa Peppermint Cookies and Brownies


1 can drained black beans

1 can drained chickpeas

2 egg whites

1/3 cup Agave nectar (or Agave Maple syrup)

3 tbsp coconut sugar

2 tsp vanilla extract

3 tbsp coconut oil, melted

1/2 cup cocoa powder

2 tsp Stevia

1 tbsp ground chia seeds

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp seat salt

1/2 tsp peppermint extract (optional)

1/3 cup oats (add ONLY if you are making cookies- NOT for brownies)

1/3 cup chocolate chips

1/3 cup chopped peppermint bark

Reserve a few bits of chocolate and bark for topping.

rippedblogsanta (317x422)BROWNIES:

Preheat oven to 375.

Place all ingredients (except chocolate chips and peppermint bark) in a food processor.  Blend for 1-2 minutes or until your dough is smooth.  Stir in chocolate and bark.  Pour into a greased 9X11″ pan.  Sprinkle with reserved chocolate and bark. Bake for 22-25 minutes.  We like ours slightly gooey, so just watch your oven to get the consistency you like.  There is NO detectable bean flavor whatsoever!

COOKIES: If you make the cookie version, simply add the oats into the dough.  Drop by spoonfuls onto a silpat or greased pan and bake for 14 minutes.
