GrtNorthernLgWe feel fortunate to have friends who love our beans as much as we do. This cookie recipe was made by Margo Knapp and it was used during the 2012 Annual Labor Day Garage Sale in Tekonsha, Michigan.

These cookies are all chocolate gooey with some crunch. Baking with beans eliminates the need to use flour and therefore makes this one of our favorite gluten-free cookie recipes. We use an ice cream scoop to measure out cookie dough because we like them big and beautiful. If you want daintier cookies, use a tablespoon and reduce the cooking time to 8 minutes.
