Chocolate Chip Garbanzo Bean Cookies - Kid Friendly Recipe

Nonstick cooking spray
1 cup firmly packed light or dark brown sugar brown sugar
3/4 cup trans fat free soft tub margarine spread
2 large egg whites
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 (15 oz) can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
2 cups (12 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
3/4 cup raisins (optional)
2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt

1. Preheat oven to 350. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.
2. In a large mixing bowl or the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the sugar and margarine with a wooden spoon or on medium speed until smooth. Beat in the egg whites and vanilla, then the garbanzo beans and chocolate chips. Add the flour, oats, baking soda and salt, and mix on low speed until a thick dough forms.
3. Drop the dough by the tablespoonful onto the baking sheet, spacing the cookies about 2 inches apart. Press gently with a fork to flatten. Bake until the cookies are golden brown and just set, 11 to 13 minutes; do not over bake. Transfer to a rack to cool.
4. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
