Peanut-free “peanut butter” chip chocolate cookies may sound a bit confusing. But if you know me well and follow me on Instagram, you should know I stay away from peanuts for GUT HEALTH REASONS. So whether you have a peanut allergy, nut allergy, or just want to bake some GUT HEALTHY VEGAN COOKIES…..these are your answer!

1, 15 oz. can of organic beans, drained and rinsed (I used kidney beans but black beans or chickpeas will also work)
3/4 cup Santa Barbara Chocolate Red Cocoa Powder (much richer in taste than typical cocoa powder), 15% off: LILSIPPER15
2 heaping Tbsp of organic Sunbutter (almond butter may also be used)
1/3 cup date syrup (or honey if not vegan)
1/2 cup carbonated mineral water (helps it fluff!)
1 or 2 handfuls of my homemade Sunbutter Chips
1. Add all ingredients (except Sunbutter chips) to a blender (I used my Vitamix) and blend until a thick batter forms.
*If batter is too runny, add more cocoa powder. *If batter is too thick, add more carbonated water. Batter should be thick but not dry (play around with the consistency)
Mix in desired amount of Sunbutter chips with a spoon and scoop out balls onto a lined baking sheet.
Bake at 350 F for about 15 minutes. Allow to cool before removing from pan.
