This recipe is nothing short of sensational! These protein cookies (which by the way are gluten free) rank a solid ten out of ten in all aspects – taste, texture and simplicity!
Don’t believe us? Try this recipe:
1 can black beans
1/2 cup chocolate whey protein powder
1/2 cup liquid egg whites
1/2 cup buckwheat flakes
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 tablespoon fennel seeds
1/2 bar 100% chocolate
1. Blend ingredients together and bake as four giant muffins (using a big muffin tray) for about 15-20 minutes (or until fully cooked) at 170 degrees C (332 F).
2. Let them cool and slice horizontally into rounds.
3. Melt half a bar of 100% chocolate and spoon some between all the cookies before moving them to the freezer.
4. Let sit in freezer for 30 minutes.

The fennel seeds are optional; you don’t have to use them but they add a wonderful flavour dimension to the whole thing and an extra element of crunch!

Do you blend all the ingredients together and then bake?
yuhoo! sorry, i should have specified!
Hi Anna, 2 questions….
One, where do you source the buckwheat flakes, toffee flavdrops… Or are these just standard baking favouring essences, and the Black Beans?
Two, assuming you pulsed all the ingredients to a coarse grain consistency, does the Black Beans pulp act as enough of a binding element??
Cheers me dear!
I get the toffee flavdrops from myprotein.co.uk; buckwheat either on amazon.co.uk or a local health food shop. Black beans at waitrose but they’re sold pretty much everywhere (canned and unsalted). I blend it all together and the beans aid with volume really more than binding 🙂
Oh gosh!! I want to eat this now. LOL. Better make me some then! 😀 Thank you for sharing!
I just made these and I will be making them again and again!!! I may have overcooked them as they were a little dry. I also used 1/2 cup of Splenda, and it made it good, but just a bit bland. A full cup would probably have been perfect. I need to find if the US has anything like your flavdrops!!
Thank you for what you do.
Awesome, Eric! Happy to hear 😀 Let me know how you get on!
