Deep Dish “Cookie” Pie

Adapted from: Katie Higgins (Chocolate Covered Katie)

Prep time: 5-10 minutes

Cook time: 35-45 minutes

Total time: 40-55 minutes

Serves: 12


2 cans white beans or garbanzo beans

1 cup quick oats

¼ cup unsweetened applesauce

3 tbsp. oil (vegetable or coconut)

2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

½ tsp. baking soda

2 tsp. baking powder

½ tsp. salt

1 ½ cups brown sugar

1 cup chocolate chips


1. Preheat oven to 350ºF.

2. Blend everything except the chocolate chips very well in a food processor.

3. Mix in chips and pour into a well-oiled pan (a 10-inch pan works well). Cook for 35 to 40 minutes.

4. Let stand at least 10 minutes before removing pie from the pan. Serve and enjoy!

Note: Trust us on this one. While the garbanzo bean base may seem off-putting, this dish is delicious.
