White Bean (YES!) Oatmeal Chocolate-Chip Cookies

  • Yield: 3 dozen 1x


  • 1 1/2 cups old-fashioned gf oats
  • 1 1/2 cups oat flour (grind gf oats until smooth like flour)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup drained great Northern, cannellini or any white beans
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar or coconut sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Lightly grease 2 baking sheets.
  3. In a food processor or grinder, grind 1 1/2 cups old-fashion oats until ground but not powdery (this is NOT your flour). Combine with oat flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. In a clean blender or food processor, puree beans and 2 Tbsp of water. Combine bean puree, butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla in a separate bowl and beat well. With the mixer on low speed, beat in oat and flour mixture. Stir in chocolate chips by hand. Drop batter (by the tablespoon) onto baking sheets. Bake 15 to 17 minutes until centers are firm and edges are lightly browned. Transfer to wire rack to cool.
