This is simply the best substitute for a regular chocolate chip cookie I’ve found. It’s my new favorite. With this base, you can probably do about anything you desire with other flavors adding and subtracting as the mood strikes you.
All manner of dried fruit, nuts, other things like peanut butter chips, or mint will work here just fine.
Make this in a brownie pan just as easily as a pie dish.
- 2 cans white beans or garbanzos (drained and rinsed)
- 1 cup quick oats (or certified-gf quick oats)
- 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 3 tbsp oil (canola, veg, or coconut)
- 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 C sugar substitute of your choice
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- Blend everything (except the chips) very well in a good food processoR.
- Mix in chips, and pour into an oiled pan (I used a 10-inch springform pan, but you can use a smaller pan if you want a really deep-dish pie.)
- Bake at 350F for around 35-40 minutes. Let stand at least 10 minutes before removing from the pan.
NOTES: Add anything at all that strikes you. Coconut, dried cherries, any nuts you like. Vary the chips and flavorings. Substitute another flavoring for vanilla.
