Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Pie


Clearly my sweet tooth isn’t done with me yet because now I’m sharing with you another dessert, my Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Pie. And here’s something that should catch you by surprise (or have I lost the ability to surprise you with anything?). This recipe contributes another post to my favorite series, 100 Things To Do With Chickpeas. Chickpeas in a pie? Let the wild rumpus begin!

I have a thing with chickpeas, what can I say? It started with these Spicy Roasted Chickpeas. This was quickly followed by me doing my happy dance in the kitchen. My husband and daughter looked on in astonishment. Oh, you know, I may have lost the ability to surprise them too, but there were at least a couple of raised eyebrows and I do believe my husband might have said something like, “They’re just chickpeas.”

It sounded, mildly, like a challenge. And you know me. I can’t take a tongue-in-cheek challenge like that lightly. With a chickpea studded fork in my hand raised high in the air, I said, “I think there’s a 100 things I could do with chickpeas!”

I’ll confess I didn’t really have a plan when I said that. Well, to be completely honest, I don’t even have a plan today.

But my Chickpeas Series lives on. There are a lot of recipes you’d expect, like my Green Monster Hummus. I also made a Shepherd’s Pie that was a little bit off the beaten path, but worth the journey! Then there was my Vegan Butternut Lasagna. Oh yes there was!

But these were all on the savory side. Since then I’ve added some crazy chickpea sweets like this Pumpkin Spice Cake and Apple Pie Cinnamon Rolls.

But I had NO IDEA my Chickpea Adventures would lead me to making a pie. As my mother would say, Oh lah!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Pie

Ingredients

  • 1 Unbaked 9″ Pie Crust
  • 15 ounces Can Reduced Sodium Chickpeas
  • 1/2 cup Peanut Butter
  • 2 tablespoons Corn Starch
  • 2 tablespoons Ground Flax Seeds
  • 3/4 cup Soymilk
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1/2 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 3/4 cup Packed Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Dairy-free Margarine, sliced
  • 1/2 cup flour

  • 1 cup Chopped Nuts, like pecans or walnuts

Directions

  1. Heat your oven to 350 F
  2. Combine chickpeas, peanut butter, corn starch, flax seeds, soymilk, and vanilla in a food processor. Pulse until the mixture is very smooth (this will take approximately 40 seconds up to a minute).
  3. Use a spatula to push down any ingredients that have accumulated at the top of the food processor bowl. Add the white and brown sugar and pulse again until the mixture is smooth again.
  4. Add the margarine and pulse for several seconds.
  5. Add the flour and pulse one more time until the flour is well-combined.
  6. Finally, add the chocolate chips and nuts and stir so that they’re evenly distributed throughout the dough.
  7. Pour the dough into the prepared pie crust. Spread evenly.
  8. Bake for 50 – 55 minutes until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  9. Once the pie is done, cool on a wire rack.
  10. Serve warm with your favorite vegan whipped cream.
Serve this pie and then sit back and enjoy the ooh’s and ahh’s from your family!

  1. Whoa, blowing my mind with this pie! I love the desserts with hidden ingredients!

    • Aren’t they the best? I love it when people ask, “What’s in this pie?” and I respond, “You don’t even wanna know!”

  2. This sounds wonderful. Your instructions mention to add flour, but I didn’t see that in the ingredients list?

  3. Absolutely lovely, Marly!!

  4. Wow! I love cookie dough but never tried a pie recipe…this will change soon! Hehe, I so wanna try this recipe of yours! Looks really yummy. :-)

  5. Cookie dough pie was always my favorite treat in elementary school when it was someone’s birthday! I agree with you on chickpeas, they are awesome.

  6. I just took this out of the oven. My house smells lovely and the tiny taste I took before I let it cool, was amazing! My family is full of Chocolate Peanut Butter fans and my mom is actually coming over tomorrow to taste test. This recipe is DELICIOUS!

  7. I looooooove this recipe! However, I had to go gluten free back in the spring :( since I can’t use regular flour, would you happen to know what kind of flour I can substitute? Thank you!!!
