"Oatmeal Raisin What? Cookies" from Chef Maki

I am sure you have heard of a lot of strange things in your life. I am sure most of you won't dare try this recipe. But, they are really, really yummmmmmmy. Seriously.

Oatmeal Raisin What? Cookies

Beat together until smooth:
¾ cup mashed beans (white or butter beans) Mash them in blender or little food processor.
¾ cup butter (half of this can be applesauce)
½ cup fructose
1 ¼-1 ½ cups dark brown sugar (I like the dark kind because it has more molasses left in it than the light kind & I hope that means a little less processed!)

Add:
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla (use the real stuff, not imitation)
(or more) This ingredient is a must have!

In a separate bowl, mix together:
2 cups whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking powder (Rumford aluminum free)
½ tsp baking soda
2 ½ -3 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp cloves

Add the two mixtures together thoroughly, then add a little at a time:
1 ½ cups white flour

Stir in half at a time:
4 cups regular rolled oats (not quick)
1-2 cups raisins.

Drop or roll into balls and lightly press cookie down on lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 10-12 minutes.
Here's the approximate size I make them.
This recipe makes about 8 dozen small cookies. Either cut the recipe in half, or freeze half for another time, or both!
Here is the little food processer I use for small jobs, in case you are interested. :)

Fit for 5 here!

This looks like such an excellent recipe for a yummy cookie. Love the more healthy ingredients - not quite so much GUILT for consuming the entire batch:)
