You get two chocolate and banana recipes in a row.
This recipe is one that I consider practically perfect. It is so good, and you should not under any circumstances miss out on it.
For that reason, I'm going to ask you a favor. Could you just through all doubts you have out of the window? Pretend that you're totally ok with every crazy ingredient in this cookie pie? Yeah? Thank you.
So, like I said, this is amazing. It's really as simple as that.
A slice of this pie is like biting into an extra gooey, extra thick, slightly underbaked cookie. If you can, grab a piece right out of the oven. You won't be sorry!
And it's mighty good for you too, at least for a dessert. With cauliflower and beans hidden inside, it's almost like eating lunch! Well, sorta.
Just listen when I say you cannot afford to skip making this Cookie Pie. It's seriously incredible.
Chocolate Chip Banana Cookie Pie
- 1 1/4 cup rolled oats or quick oats
- 1/4 cup applesauce
- 1 14oz can white beans (about 1 1/2 cups)
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 2-4 tbsp turbinado or brown sugar (depends on sweetness of banana, taste better to check)
- 1/2 large, ripe banana
- 1/2 tbsp coconut oil (or vegetable oil)
- 2 cups frozen cauliflower, thawed
- 3/4 cup chocolate chips or chopped chocolate
Preheat oven to 350F. Combine all ingredients except chocolate in food processor. Blend until completely smooth. You don't want any cauliflower or bean chunks. Taste mixture to find desired sweetness, keeping in mind there will be chocolate as well. Mix in chocolate chunks/chips until incorporated. Scoop dough into a greased 9 inch round pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until a toothpick in the center comes out clean. Wait a couple minutes before removing from pan or slicing. Serve warm or cold.
You know what to do. Get baking!
