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.

Long time no blog! I recently bought a 12 pack of 1L mason jars and today was the day I decided to put one to use. I made a super delicious pink juice with my Vitamix that is perfectly refreshing! To be honest, I don't always know what I'm doing in the kitchen, or how a recipe will turn out, but this recipe was too good not to share.
It's light, tangy, sweet and just right for a hot summer day. Not to mention, it's bright pink... ;)
Ultimate Refreshing Pink Juice (serves ~ 1 - 2)
1/2 cup frozen raspberries (or fresh)
1/2 - 2/3 cup chopped pineapple (I used fresh, but you could use frozen)
Cold water as needed
Juice all 4 pieces of citrus and add to your blender. Add in the raspberries and pineapple, and then fill the blender with cold water to about the 800mL mark (just under 1L because the juice will froth once blended). Blend away for 1 minute and serve in a mason jar or a tall glass with a straw :)
