Black Bean & Sweet Potato High Protein Cookies (Vegan & Gluten Free)

Hello! Welcome all to my blog! This is my first post here and I chose a very easy recipe for you guys. I had left over black beans and sweet potatoes from dinner so instead of throwing them out I made some very easy chocolate cookies. I love these because they’re not too sweet and they have plenty of protein. Feel free to modify them slightly by adding more chocolate chips and more maple syrup if you like things a little sweeter. Also you can throw all the ingredients (besides the chocolate chips in a food processor and get a smoother texture!


  • half cup steamed sweet potato
  • one cup cooked black beans
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup and 1 tbsp soy milk (I used sweetened)1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup gf quick cook oats
  • 1 scoop plain pea protein
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • pinch of salt


  • Preheat oven at 370 degrees
  • Mash together the black beans and sweet potato with a fork or potato masher
  • Add milk and maple syrup and mix well
  • In a separate bowl mix oats, protein powder, baking powder, cocoa powder, salt and cinnamon
  • Add the dry ingredients into the the black bean and sweet potato mix and mix well until everything forms a nice soft batter
  • Fold in the chocolate chips
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (if you don’t have parchment paper , spray the pan with some oil) and spoon 8 cookies
  • Bake for around 20 minutes (the cookies should still be a little soft when you remove them from the over
  • Let them cool for a couple minutes and enjoy!
