Secret Ingredient Double Chocolate Fudge Cookies (Kid-Approved)

Happy Cookie Friday, friends! I have quite the awesome cookie recipe for you. Listen to this: Secret Ingredient Double Chocolate Fudge Cookies? Oooooh, yes, and they’re delicious.

These cookies are chocolatey, rich, not overly sweet, and a tad undercooked, like a fudge-y brownie… AND our picky eater loved them! Little did Quinn know, there were kidney beans inside! Mwhahaha!

I know some parents aren’t fans of “hiding” healthy foods inside more kid-friendly ones, but we’re ALL about it. #realife Quinn’s diet is far from perfect, so getting extra nutrients into it anyway possible is a win for us! These cookies are also gluten- and egg-free for anyone with food sensitivities.

Even though these are “healthy” cookies, they don’t taste that way at all. Mal actually brought a batch into school for his co-workers to try, and they were a hit – noting that they especially loved the fudge-y undercookedness (obviously, that’s a word), almost like brownies! Of course, you can bake these cookies a bit longer for a firmer cookie, but I highly suggest the undercooked method! 🙂

Scale

Ingredients

1 can (15 ounces) kidney beans, rinsed and drained

1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

1/2 cup honey

2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

1 tsp baking powder

2/3 cup dark chocolate chips

1 tsp vanilla extract

pinch of sea salt


Instructions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

In a food processor, add kidney beans, peanut butter, honey, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, baking powder, and salt. Process until smooth. Scrape down the sides with a spatula and process again until a thick dough-like consistency forms and no more bean pieces remain.

Stir in dark chocolate chips. Use a spoon to portion batter into 1 1/2-inch disks on a baking sheet covered in parchment paper or a silicone mat.

Bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool slightly before serving. They might seem a little undercooked, but give me a little time to firm up before serving.
