Your mother always said never to eat raw chocolate chip cookie dough, but, this recipe is mother approved!

No eggs in this recipe – just beans!

It’s true, you don’t need eggs and flour to create a great, rich cookie dough. Instead, pureed great northern beans provide a neutral base for all the good stuff. Also, with no butter, the cookie dough base is much healthier and packed with protein from the beans.

Oh yeah, we can’t forget about the “good stuff!” We, of course, have to pack in lots of chocolate chips (otherwise it wouldn’t be chocolate chip cookie dough!) but they aren’t alone. We use sunflower seeds, oats and coconut for extra flavors and texture.

But you can make this recipe your own as well. Feel free to add other varieties of nuts, raisins, cranberries, dates or anything else that sounds good to you.

This is an awesome recipe for the holiday season. No baking required, so you can dish up some spoonfuls as soon as you are done prepping it. But, for best results, we recommend serving it chilled after some time spent in the fridge. Or, mix it with some vanilla ice cream for some cookie dough ice cream!

Also, with no eggs to worry about, this recipe has a decently long fridge life. Just make sure to keep it sealed tight in a container or wrapping and it will keep for several days without worry.

White Bean Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough


  • 1 1/2 cup Randall Great Northern Beans
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seed butter (a.k.a. sunbutter)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 5 Tbsp. old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds


  1. Add first 6 ingredients to a food processor and blend until very smooth. Then mix in the chocolate chips, seeds and coconut. Line a muffin pan with cupcake liners. Scoop dough out into liners using a cookie scoop. Put muffin pan into fridge for 30 minutes. Serve chilled.
  2. You can also serve this as a dip at room temperature using pretzels or graham cracker sticks or eat it by the spoonful. No one will ever guess there are beans in it! These store well in the freezer. Feel free to add less brown sugar or substitute it for honey.


Happy Holidays!
