What my degree in IPE didn't teach me about baking, DIY, fitness, and life…

Cookie Pie

Looks delicious doesn’t it?! You’ll never guess what’s in it! I’ve been curious about these for awhile. A few years ago when black bean brownies found their way across the internet, I thought what a great idea. I tried two different recipes before deciding that there was no hope, it would always taste like chocolate flavoured beans. And then this came along. I was out of butter, out of sugar, but wanted to make dessert. And hey, today is National Eat Beans Day. So clearly it was time. I went with the best when it comes to lightened up recipes – Chocolate Covered Katie (modified a bit) Tell me this doesn’t tempt you…

Here’s what you need:

  • 100g chick peas (drained and rinsed)
  • 250g white beans (drained and rinsed)
  • 1/4 cup nut butter (I used cashew peanut butter)
  • 1 cup oats (I used old fashioned)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 3 tbs oil
  • 1 tbs vanilla
  • 3 packets vanilla sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 tbs cocoa powder
  • 3 tbs corn syrup
  • 2 tbs water
  • 1 packet vanilla sugar

Here’s what you do:

  1. Heat oven to 160C/350F. Grease 10in springform pan.
  2. Process all the cookie ingredients in food processor until well blended. Spread into greased springform pan.
  3. Heat swirl ingredients except vanilla sugar over a medium heat, whisking continuously until mixture thickens slightly. Remove from heat and add in vanilla sugar. Pour about half over the top of cookie batter. use a tooth pick or spoon to swirl it in. (Save the rest to drizzle over the finished product)
  4. Bake for 35-40 minutes. Let rest at least 10 minutes before attempting to remove from pan.

Enjoy =) Print Recipe
