Chocolate and Black Lentil Cookies


Black "Beluga" lentils look like chocolate chips in these cookies.

1/2 cup soft butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup cooked black lentils
1 egg
1 cup flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup quick oats
1 tsp vanilla
1 tbsp milk

Cream the butter, sugar and lentils. Some of the lentils will puree and some will remain whole. 

Mix in the egg. Add the remaining ingredients and mix until well blended. 

Spoon the cookie batter onto baking sheets by the heaping teaspoon. Bake at 350F for about 15 min. 

Allow cookies to cool slightly then remove them to a cooling rack. Makes about 34 cookies.
