They’re so good you won’t even realize they’re made with black beans and zucchini. As a result, you will forget they come from a vegan cookies recipe. Guilt free, naturally packed with fiber and protein, all of which makes it mouth smile with wellness and pleasure.

These fudgy B-cchini vegan cookies are a satisfying way to stay balanced in wellness and fitness. Yes, ladies, you can “have your cookies and eat them too!”

I know you don’t want to think about your cookies and their “healthy benefits,” but this fudgy vegan cookie recipe delight does not disappoint. These vegan cookies are a super food concoction. As a result, they provide fiber to reduce cholesterol, balance blood sugar, while promoting a healthy gut microbiome.

Zucchini contains phytochemicals lutein and zeaxanthin, which are known to protect against vision loss, as well as possibly contribute to cancer prevention. Black beans contain saponins, anthocyanins, kaempferol, and quercetin, which all possess antioxidant properties.
