1/2 c sugar 125 mL
1/4 c packed brown sugar 50 mL

1 tsp vanilla extract 5 mL
1 c semi-sweet chocolate chips250 mL


1. Preheat oven to 350ºF (180ºC).

2. In small bowl, stir together bean flour, baking soda and salt.

3. In mixing bowl, cream together margarine and both sugars. Beat in egg and vanilla until light and fluffy.

4. Stir in dry ingredients until blended. Fold in chocolate chips.

5. Drop by small teaspoonfuls 2 inches (5 cm) apart onto nonstick baking sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.

The dough will seem sticky when using bean flours. Leave enough room in between cookies for them to spread out as they bake.
