Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

I’ve seen numerous recipes posted all over the internet that call for pureed beans in place of butter or oil in a recipe. Since I’ve already done multiple experiments using beans as a fat replacer I figured I would give it a try by combining two different recipes for chocolate chip cookie bars.

My group worked on replacing butter in […] read more
