If you are still in need of a tasty dessert recipe to use for the holidays and new year festivities, I’ve got you covered. This Chocolate Chip Cookie Bar Pie is a delicious and healthier version of the traditional deep dish cookie pie. Instead of an abundance of butter and eggs and white flour, this dish is vegan and made with a base of garbanzo beans and oats. Yes, garbanzo beans! And the final result is scrumptious. Your friends and family will love this recipe!
Makes a 10″ springform pan
Recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie
2 cans of garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup of quick oats
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
3 tbsp coconut oil, melted
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 cups of brown sugar
1 cup chocolate chips
To make this cookie pie, start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees and spraying the springform pan with non-stick spray. Then mix all of the ingredients (except the chocolate chips) in a food processor. Mix until well blended and until the dough is smooth, similar to the consistency of a thick hummus. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand, and spread the batter in the pan. Bake for about 40 minutes and let sit for at least 15 minutes before cutting.
Note: Putting the pie in the fridge for about 1o minutes helps it set quicker as well. Enjoy!
