This recipe is adapted from one I used to make all the time when I was a teenager.  They taste about the same as the original recipe--they do take a little longer to 'set'.  I figure it's worth it!  Gwyneth is actually the pro at making these--hers turn out way better than mine, so if you have questions, talk to her about them!

Combine in a bowl and set aside:
4 1/2 c. oats
1/2 c. peanut butter
1 T. vanilla

In saucepan combine:
2 1/2 c. evaporated cane juice
2 T. cocoa powder
1/2 c. soymilk
1/2 c. ground white beans (from a can--I just empty the whole can into the blender and blend it, then measure out 1/2 cup--this replaces the butter in the recipe)

Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally.  Let it boil for 1 minute (use a timer), stirring constantly.  Remove from heat and pour over the oat mixture.  Scoop onto greased cookie sheet, and let cool.  Cookies should 'set' fairly quickly.
