Packed with 14 grams of plant protein, these oatmeal raisin protein cookies are a perfect breakfast or snack! They are naturally vegan, gluten-free, and baked in a muffin tin.
- 1 15-ounce can white beans, rinsed and drained (e.g., cannellini or Great Northern beans)
- 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1/2 cup vanilla rice protein (or other plant-based vanilla protein powder)
- 2–1/2 tablespoons coconut sugar (or granulated sweetener of choice)

- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
- 1 cup rolled oats (certified GF as needed)
- 1/4 cup raisins, coarsely chopped
- Optional: 1-2 tablespoons vegan white chocolate chips, melted
- Preheat oven to 350F. Grease or spray 12 cups of a standard muffin tin.
- In a food processor or blender, process the drained beans and applesauce until smooth. Add the protein powder, sugar, almond butter, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; process until smooth. Transfer to a medium bowl and stir in oats and raisins.
