Lentil Cookies

I originally came across this recipe on a Mom's forum i was on several years ago.  It is a super yummy high protein and fiber snack thats great for kids and adults alike.  I have copied the recipe from since i have long since lost my own copy.   If you click the link you can print it straight to recipe card size, which is great for me since my personal recipe book is a repurposed Photo book.


  1. 1
    In a small pot over medium heat, combine the lentils and the water.
  2. 2
    Bring to a simmer, cover, and simmer for 30 to 40 minutes, or until lentils are tender.
  3. 3
    Remove from the heat and puree. If using immediately, let cool. The puree may be stored in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days or in the freezer for 2 to 3 months.
  4. 4
    Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  5. 5
    In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and allspice.
  6. 6
    In the bowl of a stand-mixer with a whisk attachment, cream together the sugar and butter on medium speed.
  7. 7
    Add the egg and mix until just incorporated.
  8. 8
    Add the vanilla and lentil puree and mix until combined.
  9. 9
    Add the flour mixture and blend on low speed until just combined.
  10. 10
    Remove the bowl from the mixer and stir in the oats, dried fruit and coconut.
  11. 11
    Form the dough into balls about 2 teaspoons in size and place on a baking sheet with parchment paper, leaving about 1-inch of room in between.
  12. 12
    Bake for 15 to 17 minutes, or until an internal temperature of 195 degrees F is reached on an instant-read thermometer.
