Chocolate Cherry Walnut Protein Cookies

Talk about Experimenting....You have No Clue how many times I try new versions of stuff in my kitchen to only taste it and chuck it! tehehe! Today I got lucky! Not only did I make a brownie but I made a cookie today too!
I think you'll really enjoy these!

Vegan, Gluten Free

  • Can of rinsed Organic Black Beans minced with 2 tblsp of Almond Milk
  • 1/2 cup of Agave
  • 2 tblsp of flaxseed meal
  • 2 tblsp of special dark cocoa
  • 3 scoops of the Raw Protein from Garden of Life
  • Maracherino Cherries
  • 1/2 Cup of Walnuts  
  • 1 tblsp of vanilla

Rinse and fully mince the Black Beans and I mince with the almond milk, agave, vanilla to help it liquify.

Then I mince up the walnuts and leaving just a few in small solid form to taste while eating. This provides extra texture and protein and a great nutty flavor.

Now Toss in the walnuts, flaxseed meal, cocoa, protein powder and blend together. Now Toss in some quartered cherries and gently stir. Now I'll use the cherry juice from the jar if needed to add liquid to the mix- it should not be too thick but not too runny either- a middle consistency - firm enough to round some cookie in the palm of your hand and then flat and lay on a  greased pan. Bake at 350 till firm - these don't rise but they can burn so watch them!
