Sweet Potato Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cookies without any butter or refined sugar, and instead filled with fibre, protein, and vitamins A & C? Now there is a dessert you can feel good about! These cookies were gobbled up by my wee ones for a treat after school, and my husband and I ate a few more as a late night snack. 

1 C canned white beans, drained and rinsed
2 Tblsp water
1 C baked/mashed sweet potato
2 eggs
1/4 C honey
1 tsp vanilla
1 C flour
1/3 C oatmeal
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 C chocolate chips

Using a food processor or immersion blender, puree beans with 2 Tblsp water to yielf 1/2 C bean puree. Combine bean puree with sweet potato, eggs, honey and vanilla. Stir until smooth. In a separate bowl, combine flour, oatmeal, cinnamon, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Combine wet and dry ingredient until moistened. Stir in chocolate chips. 

Drop by spoonfuls onto cookie sheet and flatten slightly. Bake at 350` for about 12-15 minutes, until done. These cookies are best served the same day.
