These double chocolate fudge breakfast cookies are the perfect way to start your day! Who doesn’t love a cookie in the morning?? And you’ll never know what the surprise/unexpected ingredient is because they taste SO GOOD!
Here’s a few tips to make sure your double chocolate fudge breakfast cookies turn out just right every time:
I used quick oats to test these out each time. if you decide to sub a different type of oats, it should work fine, but I can’t confirm that.
Make sure to rinse and drain your black beans thoroughly before adding them to your food processor. I pour mine into a mesh strainer, run water over them and then let them drain for a few minutes.
If you decide to cut back on the maple syrup, make sure to adjust the vanilla and almond extracts (add more). The syrup and extracts are what mask the flavor of the black beans.
Let the batter process in your food processor for a good 3-4 minutes to make sure it’s nice and smooth.
You can make smaller cookies using a cookie scoop. Bake smaller cookies for only 10-12 minutes.
