White Bean Cookie Dough (The Vegan Bean Cookbook Review)

I’m so excited to share with you about The Vegan Bean Cookbook by Andrea Soranidis!

I received a complimentary copy of her cookbook to share with you about it, but how great is that; a whole cookbook around beans!

I don’t know about you, but growing up I didn’t eat beans (or veggies, except for potatoes & corn), so I’ve spent the past ten years learning how to eat right.

Beans are super important for your health! And I feel like I’ve been almost obsessed with trying to find new ways to get them into mine and my kids diets; this book is a tremendous help with that! You will not regret it if you decide to order it.

For now, let’s get to the white bean cookie dough recipe…

This is my picky eaters NEW FAVORITE cookie dough recipe!!

To be honest, I was quite impressed myself. I’ve made cookies with chickpeas before, but using beans in desserts is a bit new for my family.

Luckily, this recipe was delicious…even though I couldn’t find all of the exact ingredients I needed for it.

First, find all of the ingredients (or use the substitutes I did or use your own substitutes) & make sure you have a food processor; you absolutely NEED a food processor for this recipe, no getting around it. This is the one I have and have been using for the past 6 years.

You’ll need:

  • oats (I use old fashioned)
  • almond flour
  • non-diary milk (the recipe calls for almond, I only ever have soy on hand)
  • almond butter
  • coconut sugar (I only had white sugar on hand)
  • maple syrup
  • vanilla
  • sea salt flakes (I didn’t use these, as I didn’t have them)
  • butter beans (which I went to 3 different stores and still could not find them– I used cannellini beans instead)
  • dark chocolate chips (we love the Enjoy Life brand)

Once you have all the ingredients, you’ll need to grind the oats into a flour, add in the rest of the ingredients into the food processor (with the oats that you ground in it), process for about a minute.

Then separate into tiny serving bowls, add in chocolate chips, stir, and enjoy!

It’s really not that hard, and it’s quite delicious

Why you’ll love this white bean dessert recipe…

Well, you already know it’s easy and you can make it in just about 5 to 10 minutes.

It’s also a great way to get your kids eating more beans.

Beans are super important for our health (read more on that here) and if you have kids I’m sure you know that it isn’t always easy to get them to eat what’s good for them. This is.

This recipe will help you get some important nutrients into your kids without complaints.

Look at the ingredients in the steps below;

You see beans- something we should all be eating more of.

Oats- which is also great for your health!

Almond butter, non-dairy milk, and more!

The sweeteners may not be so great, but sometimes you need to add a little bit of the more processed foods to eat the super healthy ones, and that’s ok.

Flipping through the beautifully photographed pictures in The Vegan Bean Cookbook, I can’t tell you how excited I am to try another recipe; they all look so delicious! You can grab your own copy on Amazon.
