Amanda, I got this recipe from the list and these cookies are a delicious
oatmeal cookie. I made them with raisins. Don't let the beans scare you
away from trying them. I've also made them using pinto or kidney beans
instead of great northern. One note: if you do not flatten these cookies
before baking they will be nice round balls when finished...either way is
good...just depends what you prefer.

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1/2 cup great northern beans -- dry
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
4 cups rolled oats
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
4 ounces dried apricots -- (optional, or other dried fruit)
I took 1/2 cup of great northern beans (medium-size white beans),
cooked them until they were very soft, drained and mashed them. I
guess this made about one cup of mashed beans.
I creamed them with 1/2 cup white sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1 tsp.
vanilla, and 1/2 tsp. salt.
I then took four cups of rolled oats, and ground them up in the
cuisinart until it was flour with a little grit to it.
the oat flour just described
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
Now chop 1/4 lb. dried apricots into fourths or so, and mix them in.
(Optional, or substitute whatever dried fruit you want.)
Heat the oven to 375F
1. divide the batter into 12 huge balls and bake for about 15
minutes to make 12 huge cookies, or
2. divide the batter into 24 big balls and bake for about 10
