Peanut Butter Chickpea Cookie Pie. Chickpea Peanut Butter Cookies. Deep dish Cookie Pie. Fudgy Chocolate Chip Chickpea Cookie Pie Recipe. Vegan Gluten-free Soy-free Recipe. Can be Nut-free
Some days I always have an excess of chickpeas when experimenting with aquafaba. There is only so much chana masala or other chickpea curries that I can eat in a week. This Chickpea cookie pie is handy to use those chickpeas and also be a treat to serve to everyone.
This cookie pie is fudgy, chocolatey, crispy on the edges, gooey in the middle and just perfect all around. There is no flavor of the chickpeas. Serve these with your favorite vegan ice cream or as is. I like to make the pie skinnier than a deep dish cookie pie to allow it to crisp and cook evenly and be more cookie like. Other beans such as white beans or navy beans should work as well. This recipe is gluten-free and can be made nut-free.
The batter can also be baked into blondie bars. Double the recipe, put everything in a food processor, blend, spread into a pan, and bake into a 9 by 9 brownie pan. Easy as can be.
I served it with cashew vanilla ice ream and Moon Goo Caramel, which is caramel + charcoal from Frankie and Jos, the new spot in town with amazing ice creams. So many vegan options these days!

Blend up all the ingredients until smooth.
Fold in chocolate chips, try not to eat up the batter and spread in a greased baking pan.
Bake and cool for 10 mins. The pie is fudgy and soft in the middle. I slice it in the pan and and pic up each slice. If the pie or blondie turns out too crunchy or crumbly, it probably got a bit overbaked. Check earlier and under bake for best results.
Slice into pie slices or squares and Serve with favorite vegan ice cream or whipped coconut cream or as is. This recipe is loosely adapted from the many deep dish cookie pies on the web. If you make the pie, do let me know how it turned out!

Add all the ingredients except chocolate chips to a food processor. Process for half a minute, scrape sides and process again until smooth. Taste and adjust sweet if needed. (If the mixture is too stiff, add a tbsp or more aquafaba or non dairy milk and blend in. See pictures for texture).
Reserve a tbsp of chocolate chips for garnish. Fold in the rest of the chocolate chips into the thick batter in the processor.
Grease or line an 8 inch or smaller cake pan. Transfer the batter onto the pan and spread it out using a spatula. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top.
