  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Mash beans, molasses, and oil together in a bowl using a potato masher or fork. Stir rice flour, amaranth, cinnamon, and ginger into bean mixture until dough is well combined; fold in raisins. Form dough into 24 small balls and arrange on prepared baking sheet. Slightly flatten balls onto baking sheet.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until edges are slightly hardened, 12 to 14 minutes. Cool on baking sheet for 2 minutes before transferring to a wire rack.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Approximately 3/4 cup of dried pinto beans will produce the amount of cooked beans called for in the recipe.
  • Tip
  • Parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

Okay, in all fairness, I didn't have pinto beans, so I used northern beans. I did not care for it.
