Vegan Cookie Pie

Recently I was looking for a nice dessert to make for my vegan friend – as well as one I could adapt for a friend with an even more restrictive diet (which I may post once I tweak and test it a little more). Normally I don’t like vegan desserts – I find they often leave a weird aftertaste in my mouth. However, I stumbled across this amazing blog with all sorts of healthy recipes – Chocolate Covered Katie – I highly recommend you check it out. I tried a recipe she developed – Vegan, Gluten Free Deep Dish Cookie Pie. It was fantastic. I tested it on my parents before telling them what was in it and they never would have guessed! You can find the link on her website here:


Deep Dish Cookie Pie

• 2 cans white beans, drained and rinsed (500g total, once drained)
• 1 cup quick oats (or certified-gf quick oats)
• 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
• 3 tbsp oil (I used coconut)
• 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
• 1/2 tsp baking soda
• 2 tsp baking powder
• 1/2 tsp salt
• 1 and 1/2 cups brown sugar
• 1 cup chocolate chips

1. Blend everything (except the chips) very well in a strong food processor. Mix in chips, and pour into an oiled pan, I used a 10-inch springform pan. Cook at 350F for around 35-40 minutes. Let stand at least 10 minutes before removing from the pan.

    Hey Kat-

    My name is KC Owens; I’m a college student who loves to travel! While cruising the Internet, I found While We Were Young and really enjoyed reading your posts. Personally, I think traveling is a necessary part of life as you’re exposed to all sorts of new cultures and experiences. While enjoying time abroad, I’ve found it’s crucial to fully understand the dangers that you might encounter along the way. These mishaps are part of life and certainly part of travel but it’s always a great idea to take preventive measures to help ensure your safety while abroad.

    I was hoping that you would allow me to write a post for your site to share my travel safety tips with your readers? I put a lot of time and passion into my traveling and I would love to help others by offering safety advice as a result of the mistakes and triumphs I’ve had. I look forward to hearing from you!
