Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies (made with beans!)

Since I don't have a food processor (such a sad thing) I used a potato masher for the beans.  It worked out just fine although a food processor would be ideal.  You will have to use a little water to get the beans to a mashed potato consistency.  They are cake-like and yummy.
Chocolate Chocoate chip cookies using beans

2 cups flour

1 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

1 stick butter, room temperature

1/2 cup pureed great northern beans (or other white bean)

1/4 white sugar

3/4 brown sugar

1 3.5oz package sugar free chocolate pudding mix (or regular I just had this and saw no other use for it! Could also use vanilla and use vanilla extract instead of almond)

1 tsp almond extract

2 large eggs

chocolate chips

nuts (optional)
preheat oven to 350
In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, and salt.
In a stand mixer, cream together butter, pureed beans, and sugars until fluffy.  Beat in pudding mix. 
Add eggs one at a time.  Add extract.  Fold chocolate chips.  Using a medium scoop, place on a baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes.
