Gluten Free cookie pie

This recipe has an unexpected ingredient that is almost guaranteed not to be guessed by even the most discerning taste-tester. Chickpeas! Alas, this recipe does not taste like legumes, but like a hearty deep dish chocolate chip cookie and if you have all your ingredients, can be ready to stick in the oven in less than 10 minutes!


2 cans white beans or garbanzos (drained and rinsed well) 

1 cup quick oats 

2 cups pitted dates (300g) 

1/4 cup date syrup

3/4 tsp salt

1.5 tsp cream of tarter

1 tsp baking soda

1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce

2/3 cup milk of choice

3 tbsp coconut oil, melted 

1 tbsp pure vanilla extract

1.5 cup dark chocolate chips 

Blend everything except the chips very well in a food processor. Mix in chips, and pour into a greased pan. In order to get this cookie to pop out you want to use a 9- inch dish lined with parchment paper, a springform pan, or a silicone pan. Alternatively, you can use a skillet!

Bake at 350F for around 35-40 minutes. Let stand at least 10 minutes before removing from the pan.

After cooling, decorate your cookie for extra festivity! We swirled chocolate spread in the middle and covered with sprinkles. You can also use fruit, coconut flakes or whatever your heart desires!
