I think that chocolate chip cookies may be my all time favorite dessert. On this blog, I have posted three different versions of them including a vegan recipe, the famous Momofuku and the NY Times best cookie ever. If you look through some of my breads and muffins, I am always adding chocolate chips–see: banana chocolate muffins .
Who invented chocolate chips? They are perfection!
This recipe for deep dish cookie pie comes from Chocolate Covered Katie’s blog. Not only are these vegan and gluten free–they have a bit of extra fiber thrown in—-(shhh….there are beans in these).
I tried to make her cookie dough dip at Christmas and was not impressed–I kept thinking it was hummus with chocolate chips thrown in. I was a little apprehensive with these for that same reason but….I was pleasantly surprised. Fortunately for me, no one else was brave enough to try these and I ate the entire pan alone. But, they are healthy, right?
My dad is going to be celebrating my grandpa’s 85th birthday this weekend and I am begging him to make these. His side of the family consists of All American folks–Pepsi, Doritos, and maybe some Costco potato salad-I would love to see if these can get snuck into the party dessert table. I expect that they will get snatched up at the party!
Healthy Cookie Pie
- 175g self-raising flour
- 50g margarine
- 50g caster sugar
- 2 Medium eggs
- 4 tablespoons milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 200g chocolate
- sugar (a sprinkling for a crunchy top)
|1.||Place the flour and caster sugar into a bowl and create a well in the middle for the other ingredients. |
Mix the eggs, vanilla extract, milk and margarine and then pour it into the bowl with the dry ingredients.
Mix well until it is lump free and then break the chocolate into small pieces and add them.
|2.||Pour the muffin mixture into a muffin tin filling each mould up to two thirds full. |
Place a block of chocolate into the middle of each muffin. Then sprinkle some sugar over the top of each.
|3.||Cook for around 20 minutes in a preheated oven at 200ºC / 390ºF / gas mark 5. After 18 minutes or so check to see if they are cooked enough. |
Insert a knife into one of the muffins and if no mixture is on the knife then they are cooked!
Allow to cool for at least 5 minutes before eating.
