Directions

Combine the kidney beans, beets, almond milk, extracts, xylitol and sugar to a blender or food processor and puree until smooth.
Add the cocoa, coconut flour, baking powder, salt and vinegar and puree again, scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary.
Wrap dough (which should be about like a thick (scoopable) muffin batter) in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 36 hours.
Preheat the oven to 350F and line cookie sheets with SilPat.
Scoop dough onto the prepared cookie sheets, flatten slightly and bake for 18 minutes, or until the cookies are no longer wet or shiny looking but slightly soft in the centre.
Let cookies cool completely on the pan before moving them.
If not serving them immediately, store in the fridge in a covered container.
