Ingredients

    1 cup brown sugar

    ¾ cup margarine

    1 egg

    1½ tsp vanilla

    ¾ cup green lentil puree*

    1½ cups all-purpose flour

    ½ tsp salt

    1 tsp baking soda

    2 cups quick cooking rolled oats

    1½ cups chocolate chips

    ¾ cup chopped pecans (optional)


Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 190° C (375° F).
  2. In a bowl, mix together sugar and margarine. Add egg mixture just until blended. Add vanilla and lentil puree and mix until blended.
  3. Sift flour, salt, and soda together. Add flour mixture one-third at a time to creamed mixture. Mix on low until just blended. Add oats, chips and pecans and lightly blend.
  4. Scoop 1 tsp of dough onto a greased cookie sheet 1” apart and flatten with a fork. Bake 12-15 minutes. Do not over bake.

Lentil Puree: Place cooked or rinsed & drained canned lentils into a food processor. For every 1 cup lentils, add ¼ cup water. Blend to make a smooth purée with a consistency like canned pumpkin. If needed, add additional water 1 Tbsp at a time.
