First you must know this.
1. Cookies, and more particularly chocolate chips cookies, are a weakness for me.
2. Growing up, I could not make a good batch of cookies to save my life, and my brother teased me incessantly about this fact. I may or may not have a complex because of this.
3. It took me until about a year into our marriage to find "THE RIGHT" recipe. And now, there is no need to deviate from this recipe. It is tried and true, they are DELISH every-time, However, they are fatty mc fat fat.
4. One of my new years resolutions was to eat and cook healthier.
That all being said... I tried substituting white beans for some of the butter in my FAVORITE chocolate chip cookie recipe.
Sad story... they tasted like bark mulch from the playground. I am not kidding, they literally tasted like that... like I would know what playground bark tastes like, but I swear you would agree.
What ever you do... DO NOT TRY THIS. I beg of you, learn from my mistakes and do not put beans in cookies.
Now that I think about it, why would you, why did I? This should never have happened.
