This recipe is adapted from 101cookbooks.com. These are large cookies and you can add the zest of one lemon (removed here because caloriecount.about.com doesn't recognize it as an ingredient...) when you add the cinamon and salt.

Recipe Ingredients for Cookies: Marathon

2 cups rolled oats (not instant oats)
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt, fine grain sea
15 ounce can white kidney, great northern, or navy beans, rinsed & drained
1/4 cup olive oil
1 cup brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup chopped dates
1/3 cup sesame seeds

Recipe Directions for Cookies: Marathon

  1. Preheat your oven to 350F degrees and place a rack in the top third. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

  2. Pulse the oats in a food processor (or blender) until they resemble a raggy flour. Transfer the oats to a large mixing bowl and whisk in the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, lemon zest and salt.

  3. Pulse the beans and olive oil in the food processor until they are creamy. Add the sugar, egg, and vanilla extract and pulse until smooth. Scrap down the sides of the bowl once or twice along the way.

  4. Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients and stir until the ingredients start to come together. Sprinkle the dates across the top of the batter and stir until everything just comes together.

  5. Place the sesames seeds in a bowl. Make each cookie with a scant 1/4 cup scoop of dough. Roll each scoop of dough into a ball then coat it with sesame seeds. Set each ball on the prepared baking sheet and with the palm of your hand flatten the dough just a bit (see photo). Repeat with the remaining dough, leaving at least an inch or so between each cookie - they'll spread a bit, but not much. Bake for about 15 minutes or until the sesame seeds around the bottom start to get golden.
