Grain-Free Black Bean Chocolate Chip Cookies

I think I almost died.

Ummm…k.  Maybe not.  But these black bean chocolate chip cookies are amazing!

I dished them out to every member of my family (except Pepper – dogs should NOT have xylitol or chocolate) and EVEN the skeptical husband LOVED them.  He did!

In fact, everyone loved them.

They don’t taste healthy…but they are.  Win-win!

Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Taco Recipe

These crockpot buffalo chicken tacos have been a regular on our menu for quite a few years now. Long before we were in the RV, I made them.  The crockpot aspect makes these tacos one recipe I make several times a month.  This recipe feeds a crowd and is great for leftovers.

  2. We’ve made these a couple times now. Ours turn out pretty gooey too, but still delicious! Thanks for sharing!

    • To stay with the Trim Healthy Mama eating plan, I’d say either Truvia or Erythritol (though this one is not as sweet so you may need to add more or make your own Truvia). If you are not concerned with sugar, you can use regular white granulated sugar or coconut sugar. (I have not tested it with either though)

  3. I’ve made these a few times and they are very good – you would hardly know they have black beans in them! However, I did have a question-Today I calculated the nutritional info and without the SF chocolate chips mine came out as 3g fat, 3g net carbs, and 2.7 protein per cookie. The chocolate chips have more carbs per TBsp than fat so I was curious as to how it came out as an S dessert? Thanks!

    • I’m so glad you like them Katie! 🙂 The fiber in the beans makes the carb count less and keeps it in S territory.

  4. Is the nut butter necessary for them to come out properly? I’m not a fan of peanut butter at all and don’t have any almond butter on hand.

    • I’ve never made them without peanut butter Shyla. Sorry I can’t help but you can try it without.
