No Cauliflower Cookie Pie

I've been meaning to do this for a while now.

What, you ask?  Make my Chocolate Chip Banana Cookie Pie with no cauliflower, that's what!

I mean, the first version was absolutely amazing and all, but I know y'all aren't crazy like me and don't keep multiple bags of frozen cauliflower stocked in your freezer.  So, I decided to see if I could mantain the same great recipe while skipping the cauliflower.  You know, to make it easier on you guys.

And.... it worked!

Instead of using cauliflower I subbed in some applesauce, and I also sweetened the Cookie Pie with 1 whole banana and 1 tbsp of maple syrup.  That's right, no white sugar in this baby!  It's highly reccommended that you use chopped chocolate too, just because it's melty and yummy and awesome (but if you really want to you can use chocolate chips).

Oh yeah, and in case you didn't already guess, this thing is absolutely delicious.  Make.  It.  Now.

No Cauliflower Cookie Pie
  • 1 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 1 can white kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 ripe banana, peeled
  • 1/2 tbsp coconut oil, melted (another oil is ok too)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 3/4 cup chopped dark chocolate or chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350F.  Grease a 9 in circular pan (and 8 in is OK too).  Combine all ingredients except chocolate in the bowl of a food processor.  Process until all ingredients are incorporated and a thick batter forms.  This may take a while, so stop the processor as necessary and scrape down the sides.  Once combined, add chocolate chips/chunks and process quickly just until the chocolate in incorporated.  Scoop batter into prepared pan and spread into an even layer.  Bake for 20-25 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean and Cookie Pie has browned.  Cut into 8-12 slices and serve warm if possible.  It's delicious cold too.

  2. 3 Studies SHOW How Coconut Oil Kills Waist Fat.

    The meaning of this is that you literally kill fat by eating Coconut Fat (including coconut milk, coconut cream and coconut oil).
