Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie

Get ready for the best chocolate-chip-cookie-eaten-with-a-fork EVER. And you’ll never guess the ingredient that makes this actually healthy.

OK, truth time: This cookie has beans in it. But, I promise you, no one will ever know. I fed it to unknowing 11 and 14 year olds and they were none the wiser. Fun!  Despite being ‘healthy’, this is seriously gooey and delicious. No joke — my favorite new chocolate fix.

Just the Tip / Inspired by Chocolate Covered Katie

Here’s what I used:

  • 250 grams (about 1 can) drained and rinsed canned cannelini beans
  • 250 grams (about 1 can) drained and rinsed canned garbanzo beans (or any combination of white beans equaling 500 grams)
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 3 tbsp canola oil
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups packedbrown sugar
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Here’s what I did:

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Combine everything (except for choc. chips) in a food processor until everything is very well combined. Pour into a bowl, stir in the chocolate chips, and transfer to a 8 or 10″ springform pan (8″ will give you a deeper-dish pie, but will take a few extra minutes of cooking).
  3. Cook for 35 minutes if using a 10″ pan, about 40 minutes if using an 8″. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.
