"These pinto bean cookies use a small amount of rice flour and small amount of amaranth for grains. These are not overly sweet cookies, since molasses and raisins are the only sweeteners."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 1/2 cups
drained and rinsed canned pinto beans
Very tasty cookie that will help get some protein in teenagers that seem to always be "too in a hurry" to eat a healthy snack. I had to use garbanzo beans because I can't find pinto beans where I live. The amaranth is crunchy, the raisins are chewy and sweet and the cookie itself is soft and tender. A very nice textured cookie I'd say. The ginger and the cinnamon were subtle and think that might be the garbanzo bean being a bit more overpowering than a pinto bean so might increase the two spices the next time. All-in-all this is a nice treat that isn't too sweet, a plus in my house and a kid pleaser so a keeper of a recipe. I followed the amounts exactly and it rendered 527 grams of "batter". I made 24 cookies weighing approx. 22 grams each. I used a melon baller to scoop. The cookies were bite-sized which the kids liked. These will be nice for putting in lunch and snack bags. Worked great as a power boost for those after swimming lesson treats. Thanks Sueb for the recipe.
