I gotta admit, I’m pretty excited to write this post.

I’ve made this healthy chocolate chip cookie recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie a few times, and as I’ve done so, I’ve made a few tweaks and changes to get it just the way we like it. I figured it was time to share the love. This is too good not to share. My husband is obsessed with this recipe. Literally obsessed. I can’t even tell you how quickly this thing disappears when I make it.

That’s right – beans. Magically, versatile, white beans. This isn’t my first time baking with beans – I’ve used black beans to make fudgy, decadent black bean brownies and this deep dish cookie is just as fabulous. If you’re getting ready to click away from my site, please don’t! You have to give these a try. You are not going to be disappointed. You can’t taste the beans and they give this healthy chocolate chip cookie recipe such a great texture. You’re going to loveeeeee them. I feel like I keep saying that, but it’s true.

I’m sure I’ll get some pushback about the word “healthy.” I know there are many interpretations of it, but if you were to compare this recipe to a traditional deep dish chocolate cookie, I’m sure we’d be winning over here with the beans. Of course, it is still a dessert but the good news is that making small changes can really add up over time. This healthy chocolate chip cookie recipe will satisfy your sweet tooth in the best possible way.

If you’re loving this – you might also love my healthy breakfast cookies. I have three varieties – gingerbread breakfast cookies, apple crisp breakfast cookies, and chocolate banana breakfast cookies. If you made me choose a favorite, I wouldn’t be able to. Okay, maybe it would be the chocolate banana variety…you can’t go wrong with that classic combination.

  1. interesting ingredient–I know it’s done, and those beans shouldn’t impact flavor… change is hard ;)

  2. tuesday has me feeling sluggish right now — it’s 35F in NYC! — but this deep dish cookie perked me right up :) pinned! x

  3. seriously…SUCH a game changer!

  4. I just made this recipe, and it tastes very much like toll house chocolate chip cookies. The texture is what will make me hesitant to make this recipe again.  I baked it for 38 minutes to not over bake as directed, and the texture is quite gooey, much like raw cookie dough.  However, since there are no eggs or dairy in the recipe, we will eat it.  I don’t know that baking it longer would change the texture.    

    • So glad you liked this recipe! It does have an ooey-gooey texture (which we love!). I agree with your speculations, I don’t think baking it longer will significantly change the texture.
