Cleanse or no cleanse I will always find a way to make and eat cookies. These cookies were awesome (yes I said WERE). But please be forewarned that they’re not too sweet as I am not really allowed to have sugar. You may want to add additional sugar and chocolate if that is what you’re looking for. These are just a healthy version of cookies. Great for kids, and people on cleanses…hehe!

Want a sweeter bean cookie? Try these Black Bean Chickpea Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Please check out the Purple Bird Blog, which is where I originally got the idea for my black bean cookies which also inspired these!


Makes 48 small cookies

2 CUPS Dry Shredded Coconut

2 (15 oz) Cans of Chickpeas

1/2 CUP Almond Butter (or peanut butter)

3 TBSP Coconut Flour (Any flour)

2 TBSP Agave (or Maple Syrup)

1 TBSP Vanilla Powder (or Extract)

2 1/2 TSP Krisda (Powdered Stevia) or you could use a Liquid Stevia or 1/2 CUP Sugar

3-5 TBSP Coconut Milk (Any milk of choice)

1/2 CUP -3/4 CUP Chocolate Chips

Pre-heat oven to 375 Degrees. Rinse and drain your beans. Place all ingredients in food processor 1 at a time, except Chocolate chips. I would place in an ingredient blend for 15-60 seconds and continue, scraping the sides occasionally with a spatula. Once all ingredients are blended, place them in a bowl and fold in the chocolate chips. Use a spoon or scoop to drop your batter on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. These cookies do not bake down, so choose your exact desired size and shape. I scoop them all on to the cookie sheets and then flatten them with a spoon. (Make sure you do not mistake parchment paper for wax paper- black smoke WILL come out of your oven). Bake 13-15 minutes.

REMEMBER: I tailored this recipe so that I could have it on my cleanse. These cookies are not super sweet, and I put chocolate chips only in half of them.



    1. Try it try it try it!! You should make the black bean and chickpea ones that I made last month. They are much sweeter than these. You would never know there are beans in it!! I will add the link to this post!

  1. I love beans in baked goods, though I’ve never put them in cookies. These look great, and since they’re not too sweet, you (I) could totally justify having them as a meal. Right?

    1. You got it sista! I am really working hard to at least drink a glass of water before I jam 5 of them in my mouth. At this point, I am not sure that making them bite size was beneficial.

  2. I made these this morning.

    Very easy to make and delicious, but quite different to your average cookie!

    The variations I used:
    Peanut butter instead of Almond.
    No sugar
    A whole cup of Dark Good Quality Chocolate
    Rice Milk instead of Coconut milk.
