Cookies Du Jour

I really like to make cookies.  I think it makes our house happier, but I don't love all the sugar, etc. that are in cookies.  SO, I have been alternating between regular ol' delicious cookies, with something a little healthier.  You might have heard me say it before but subsituting beans for butter was a HUGE concept for me... I thought it'd be gross.  Turns out, it's not bad.  It adds a ton of good protein and fiber into whatever you're making.

So, without further adieu, here are the cookies I'm making today:
Oatmeal Raisin Cookies (but instead of the 1 C of shortneining, I substitue 1 cup of cooked white beans).  Makes for a 2 point cookie and I actually think they're better for you then regular ol' granola bars.

Give it a try!

P.S.  These really are the cookies.  Don't you love have phones can upload pictures to picasa?

  1. Do you always use newspaper under your cookies? I see that in a lot of your pictures and it's just something that never occurred to me. If so, why?

    They look yummy. I may have to whip up a batch myself.
