How many people get a Disney Princess as an assistant in the kitchen? (actually probably most parents of young girls especially post Frozen craze) I however am very lucky to have a talented little chef to help me create and perfect recipes. We tried out a few different batches and settled on what tasted amazing to us. However, you and whomever you are cooking for or with may want it sweeter or a different consistency. So as usual, my measurements are not exact and I encourage you to take this base recipe and make it your own. I will be coming out with different variations as well. I have now eaten just about the entire batch as I write this and watching my Continuous Glucose Monitor, I can vouch that it has a great combo of fiber/protein/fat and carb and at least for me, does not spike my blood sugar! And that makes this type 1 diabetic very happy!
Watch Vivi demonstrate how to make it on her latest episode of Vivi’s Vittles here.
- 1 can or just over 1 cup of white beans (drained and rinsed)
- 2 1/2 cap fulls of vanilla extract
- pinch of unrefined sea salt
- pinch of baking soda
- Cream or whole milk from grass fed cows if needed
- 2T coconut flour or almond flour
- 1/2 cups pecans
- 2 big spoonfuls of organic raw honey
- 1/4 cup sucanat or add more honey
- 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (I prefer the Enjoy Life brand)
- In a food processor combine all of the ingredients except the chocolate chips. Blend until completely smooth and sweeten to taste.
- Add in a few chocolate chips and pulse a few times. Remove from the processor and spoon into a bowl, mix in remaining chocolate chips.
- If you are making this to take to a party or for someone else, double the batch because you will eat at least half while spooning in the chocolate chips.
- If you want to substitute pure stevia leaf or liquid stevia for part of the sweetener go right ahead! Just please don't use an artificial sugar free sweetener.
- Make the cookie dough recipe found in the recipe index.
- Freeze for 10-15 minutes until the dough becomes workable. Roll into balls and place on parchment paper. Freeze completely and then store in a bag in the freezer for the perfect snack.
