Chocolate-Covered Katie’s Blog’s slogan is “Where Healthy Tastes Naughty” definitely held true with her Deep-Dish Cookie Pie recipe! I won’t go into too much recipe detail, because we didn’t deviate from Katie’s at all, and you can see it on her blog!
This recipe is vegan (except for the chocolate chips) and it’s key ingredients are applesauce, quick oats, garbanzo beans, and brown sugar.
I’ll admit that I was EXTREMELY skeptical about trying this recipe, and I thought that maybe we should just make half of the recipe to make sure it tasted good, but Andy was excited about it and wanted us to make the whole thing. So we did! Only problem? We couldn’t find his food processor and his blender was broken. Our solution? Andy was our food processor! One of the many perks of having a restaurant cook with killer knife skills for a boyfriend! It just took a little longer, but we didn’t mind.
35 minutes later it was out of the oven and ready to eat! And eat we did…
It was SO decadent, dense, moist, chewy, and altogether wonderful! The beans and oats made it really filling.
We definitely enjoyed it…look how much we ate right out of the oven!
I’d definitely make it again, you can’t even taste the beans! Thanks for the great recipe, Katie!
