Don't you love it when you come across a recipe that you just have to make?! That's how I felt when I saw Katie's Deep-Dish Cookie Pie on Wednesday. Chickpeas in a cookie pie? Katie is a genius! Then I felt super sad when I discovered I had no chocolate chips, no instant oats, no applesauce and the teeniest amount of sugar! What's a girl to do? Make some tweaks of course!
1 can chickpeas
1/2 cup porridge oats
1 small banana
1.5 tablespoons rapeseed oil
1/4 tsp bicarbinate of soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup agave syrup
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 bar of Lindt Sea Salt Dark Chocolate
Blend together all ingredients expect chocolate for around 3-4 minutes. Meanwhile, chop your chocolate into rough chunks. Mix with other ingredients using a spatula and transfer to cake pan. Bake at 180C for 20 minutes. Leave to cool for 5-10 minutes before serving! Yum yum!
If I made this again, I'd probably reduce the amount of sugar - it's super super sweet but yummy all the same!
Thanks Katie for the original recipe - you're such an inspiration :D
