So I had been eyeing this recipe (this is adapted from there) and others that similarly used a sneaky, secretly healthy ingredient in cakes… How excellent! A cookie-cake with extra protein!! Love the extra protein.
Made it this morning as Danielle came over and we chowed down after a run around downtown. Best served warm and with a dollop of Cool Whip on top.
- 1 can white kidney beans (15 oz)
- 3 tbsp apple sauce
- 3/4 c quick oats
- 1.5 tbsp canola oil
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- dash salt
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 c brown sugar
- 1/2 c choco chips
- Preheat to 350
- Blend everything (but choco chips) in food processor, very well. Stir in choco chips afterwards.
- Pour into nonstick or PAM-ed baking pan. Bake for ~20 min.
This could definitely also work with raisins… I was thinking about making this with raisins and choco chips together. Mmmm.
