    Default Lentil Cookies

    Lentil Cookies

    1 cup butter, softened
    1 cup sugar
    1 cup brown sugar
    1 1/2 cups lentil puree
    2 tsp. vanilla
    2 cups quick cooking oats
    3 cups flour
    1 tsp. salt
    1 tsp. baking soda
    1 tsp. baking powder
    2 cups chocolate chips or chunks
    Cream butter, sugars, lentil puree, and vanilla. Add dry ingredients and mix well. Add chocolate and drop by spoonfuls on a cookie sheet. Bake at 350* about 9 minutes.

    Nobody had any idea there were lentils in these. The kids loved them, licked the cookie dough beaters clean, and I didn’t have to worry about them eating raw cookie dough since the lentils replace the eggs. I imagine these are lower in fat too since they replace some of the butter and the eggs. I wonder about trying them with no butter next time? Will have to play around with this and let you know. I think they would be tasty with butterscotch chips, or white chocolate and dried cranberries. Yay for adding protein and fiber to cookies!

    Do you think you could replace some of the butter with applesauce and butter flavoring?

    I think I will try these tomorrow. THANKS!!

    You'll have to let us know how that worked out for you.

    I plan on tweaking it myself, that much sugar would send my blood sugar over the moon.

    I love lentils, but I never would've thought to use them in cookies. I'll have to try this recipe!

    I'm still pretty new to lentils and well which kind should be used for this recipe (i.e. which colour LOL). Also, does 1.5 cups of dry lentil cook up to 1.5 cups puree or do I need to start with more to walk away with the 1.5 cups of puree?

    ETA: I just did the numbers on these cookies but I wasn't sure how many cookies a batch makes so I have nutritional info for 24 and 48 cookies (made with milk chocolate chips).

    1 cookie= 1 serving

    24 cookies- 12.6g fat, 51.9g carb, 3.3g fiber, 4.6g protein
    48 cookies- 6.3g fat, 26g carb, 1.6g fiber, 2.3g protein
