White Bean Chocolate Chip Cookies (GF)

  • Author: Jasmine Briones / Sweet Simple Vegan
  • Total Time: 36 minutes
  • Yield: 6-8


  • 2 tbsp chia seed meal + 6 tbsp water
  • 1/4 cup organic coconut oil (I suggest Better Body Foods)
  • 4 medjool dates, pitted
  • 1/2 cup organic coconut sugar
  • 1/2 cup white beans
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp aluminum-free baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • A pinch of salt (if desired)
  • 1/2 cup brown rice flour
  • 1/2 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup hazelnuts (or nuts of choice)


  1. Preheat oven to 350F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. If you do not have chia seed meal, first grind some chia seeds. I would grind 1.5 tbsp to start.
  3. Mix the chia seed meal with water, and set aside to thicken for at least 15 minutes. As it sits, prepare the rest of your ingredients.
  4. Place all of the ingredients from the coconut oil to the vanilla extract into a food processor (or high-speed blender). Add in the soaked chia meal, and process until smooth. Set aside.
  5. In a large bowl, combine the rest of the dry ingredients and stir until uniform. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until combined. I found that this was most easily done with a wooden spoon and then my hands to make sure it is all mixed very well.
  6. Stir in the chocolate chips and hazelnuts.
  7. Roll the dough into balls about 1.25″ wide, 3/4″thick, making sure to squish it down a little flat when placing on the baking sheet. These cookies do not expand, so please keep that in mind when forming the cookies. I made 15 cookies total.
  8. Bake for 11 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 15 minutes before serving*.


Make sure you allow the cookies to cool. I found that if I moved the cookies while warm they fell apart and became crumbly when cooled.
