Makes: 8-10 Cookies
Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Cook Time: 15-20 Minutes


  • 1 cup cooked black beans
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 2 tablespoons Svelte® Chocolate Protein Shake
  • 2 dates
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 5 tablespoons cacao powder
  • 1 tablespoon rice flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • Toasted sesame seeds for topping


1. Preheat oven to 375° Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. Add black beans (rinsed + drained if using a can), coconut oil, tahini, Svelte®, dates, and chia seeds to a blender or food processor and mix until smooth. Let sit 5+ minutes.
3. In a separate bowl, stir together the coconut sugar, cacao powder, rice flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and sea salt.
4. Mix together the wet and dry ingredients until well-combined. Batter should be thick and smooth (like a cake batter).
5. Drop batter onto the lined baking sheet, forming roughly 9 circles.
6. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Cookies will be soft and have slight cracks across the top.
7. Remove from oven and top with toasted sesame seeds.
