This recipe has been made countless times over the past couple of years. Not only is it super delicious, it has no flour, eggs, butter and is high in fiber! I can almost guarantee that whoever you serve this to will have no idea what the main ingredient is. Can you guess?
CHICKPEAS! This bean is incredibly versatile. You can roast them, toss them in a salad, blend them into hummus and now into a chocolate chip cookie pie! I don't think you'll ever go back to regular chocolate chip cookies after this recipe. Trust me :)
Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie (serves ~24, depending on how you slice it ;)
1 can chickpeas
1 cup oats
2 cups pitted dates
8 drops liquid stevia
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup applesauce
2/3 cup unsweetened almond milk (or water)
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350F. Blend all of the ingredients (except chocolate chips) in a food processor, starting with the chickpeas, until smooth. Transfer into a bowl and mix in the chocolate chips. Pour into a baking pan (preferably 9 x 13, or a circular pan around 10" wide) and bake for ~35 minutes or until browned.
