I was reading Chocolate Covered Katie the other day and found a recipe I had to try, a Healthy Deep Dish Cookie Pie. Before I tell you the ingredients and you turn your nose up you must see the photos.
Mmmm, it’s moist and dense with the perfect amount of chocolateyness =)
Now, here are the ingredients. I promise you would never guess it is made with beans!!! It has a double thumbs up from the family, who tends to stick their noses up at my healthy concoctions ;). My version is more of a cake than a pie, and with less sugar. I’m going to be making a peanut butter version, and chocolately version!
I made one a couple days ago and it was eaten up readily by the boys. Today I made another to take to Holly’s house tonight (check her coffeeholic blog out here!).
