The cookies use pureed white beans in the dough, lots of oats, and whole wheat flour. After a bit of experimenting, I had a baggie full of palm-sized, sesame coated, bun-shaped cookies flavored with aniseed, lemon zest, olive oil and chopped dates. The cookies are beautifully tender, licorice-scented, with a bit of crunch from the sesame seed coating.
try chickpeas though white navy beans are creamier, also try fennel seed sub word for marathon and variety of dried fruits
Marathon Cookies 2 cups rolled oats (not instant oats) 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour 1 T. aniseed, crushed in mortar and pestle (or spice grinder) 1 t, baking powder 1 t. baking soda zest of one lemon 1/2 t. fine grain sea salt one 15-ounce can white kidney, great northern, or navy beans, rinsed & drained 1/4 cup olive oil 1 cup natural cane sugar (or brown sugar) 1 large egg 1 t. vanilla extract 1/3 cup chopped dates 1/3 cup sesame seeds comments: Excellent recipe! I turned them into chocolate chip cookies by omitting the anise seed and lemon zest and using 1 teaspoon of cinnamon instead. Instead of adding dates, I used 1 cup chocolate chips then rolled in raw sugar before flattening them. I substituted cardomon and powdered ginger for the aniseed, to great effect.
