RECIPE: Healthy Deep Dish Cookie Pie

Hey y'all! So after the success of my Healthy Cookie Dough Dip, I decided to keep working on healthifying some of the most guilt-inducing foods. And so I bring you, Healthy Deep Dish Cookie Pie. 
The secret ingredient is- you guessed it- beans!
Ingredients: 
  • 2 cans of white or garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained. (I used white in the dip, so I decided to try garbanzo this time, and it came out really well)
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 tsp baking power
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/3 cup applesauce
  • 3 tbsp canola oil
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup cane sugar
  • 2 tsp canilla extract
  • HELLA chocolate chips (Hello, NorCal, where hella is adjective)
    • (hella is anywhere from 1-1.5 cups. I did 1 and it was plenty.

1. Use a food processor to blend everything except the chocolate chips. Be sure to keep it going for a long time- no one likes bean or oat chunks in their pie!
2. Pour into a bowl and stir in chocolate chips. Pour into a 9 or 10 inch springform pan and bake for 35-37 minutes at 350 degrees F. Let cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan. 
Don't forget to get in some spatula licking action- no eggs so this is absolutely safe!
Y'all, this was my first time using the springform pan, and I think I now know what love it. Look at those clean edges!

The best part about all of this? 1/8 of this is less than 200 calories. Because this is made of garbanzo beans, it's ridiculously filling, and even my brother, who is an almost 10 year-old food monster couldn't eat more than that. My mom and I stuck to 1/16ths, which were still amazingly filling. 

Peace out, girl scout. 
xo, Hima

  7. Oh my word, this looks amazing!! I'm curious to see how the garbanzo beans change the flavor (though I love garbanzo beans so I'm sure loving a cookie pie made with garbanzo beans wouldn't be an issue). ;)
