Whole Grain Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Tyffanie Perez


I created this recipe for those busy mornings when the kids only have a few minutes to eat breakfast, and also for a healthy snack. I added pureed beans for extra protein and as a fat-replacement. I usually use canned beans that I drain and rinse a couple of times in the can and fill back up with water. The powdered milk also adds extra protein and calcium. You can replace the chocolate chips with raisins--my kids don't let me though. Also,I find that using ground white wheat bakes up lighter than standard red wheat.
