Black bean chilli cherry cookies

Hello :) I had actually intended to create these delicious (and they really are!) cookies on the weekend, however was missing a few essential ingredients so they get a post all to themselves! Choosing to make this recipe was really quite simple. I saw it on My New Roots and wanted to make them straight away, like all her fabulous recipes. Black beans in cookies? Oh yes.

Here's a link to the recipe :)

Now these cookies are quite marvellous. Not overly sweet, they're soft from the black beans and have a delicious, intense chocolate taste. And after a few seconds you get a kick from the cayenne pepper and a touch of sea salt. So many flavours! I used dried cranberries instead of cherries, which were soft & sweet. They're one of those fabulous recipes that taste oh-so-indulgent, but are really very healthy!

Perfect with rooibos tea...
And a nectarine & good book...
