Ingredients

  • 2 cans organic chickpeas (I chose a BPA-free canned brand)
  • 1 cup quick oats (or certified-gluten free quick oats)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened organic applesauce
  • 3 tbsp oil (canola, vegetable or coconut)
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 and 1/2 cups organic brown sugar (Swap for cane juice, white sugar or coconut sugar if you like)
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Step 1: Prepare Chickpeas

Preheat the oven to 350F. Then, rinse and drain the chick peas.

Step 2: Blend the Ingredients

Blend all of the ingredients (except the chocolate chips) very well in a food processor. Don’t use a blender for this task, it won’t get the job done. My food processor was just big enough to handle the amount of batter, so I added the ingredients slowly and blended in stages.

Step 3: Mix in Chocolate Chips

After the batter is fully blended (no chickpea chunks to be found), stir in the chocolate chips with a spoon or spatula. You could also stir in other ingredients at this time. I added shredded coconut. You could also add chopped walnuts or even dried cherries.

Step 4: Pour Into Pan

Oil a pan. I used a 10-inch springform pan, but you could also use a regular, similarly sized brownie pan. Then, pour the batter into the pan.

Step 5: Bake

Bake the cookie pie for 35 to 40 minutes. After you remove it from the oven, be sure to let it stand for at least 10 minutes before removing it from the pan. Serve warm and enjoy!
