PB Deep Dish Cookie Pie

PB Deep Dish Cookie Pie



We’re living into our highest selves over here… Your health is your biggest asset, but that doesn’t mean you need to give up the sweet side of life. 

This includes cookies, because let’s be honest, who doesn’t love a freshly baked cookie? Rich, buttery, salty, sweet… the list goes on. They’re just downright delicious. But, if you’re anything like me, the sugar crash, calorie hangover feeling is one to pass on.

With a few macro-minded twists, I’ve created a full on chocolate chip cookie experience you can feel good about. This unique creation combines the indulgence of a classic cookie pie with the health benefits of beans, making it a guilt-free treat that satisfies both your sweet tooth and your nutritional needs.

The Magic of Beans: Beans are a powerhouse of nutrients, packed with protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Incorporating beans into desserts might sound unconventional, but it adds a nutritious twist to your favorite treats. Beans contribute to heart health, regulate blood sugar levels, and support digestion – all while bringing a rich, creamy texture to our deep dish cookie pie.

Health Benefits of Beans:

  1. Protein Powerhouse: Beans are an excellent source of plant-based protein, making them an ideal ingredient for those looking to boost protein intake without relying on meat. This is especially beneficial for vegetarians and vegans or those of us simply looking to sneak in a bit more protein to our everyday delights.
  2. Fiber for Digestive Health: The high fiber content in beans aids digestion and helps maintain a healthy gut. Fiber also promotes a feeling of fullness, which can be beneficial for those managing their weight.
  3. Nutrient-Rich Goodness: Beans are rich in essential vitamins and minerals, including iron, potassium, and folate. These nutrients play a crucial role in maintaining overall health and well-being.

The Recipe: Now, let’s dive into the recipe for our Deep Dish Bean Cookie Pie. This innovative dessert will not only satisfy your sweet cravings but also contribute to your daily nutrient intake.



500 grams Great Northern Beans or Garbanzo Beans (drained and rinsed well)
50 grams oat flour (or ground quick oats)
50 grams powdered peanut butter
42 grams Cocoa Bar PB Cup (or flavor of choice)
2 tsp vanilla
100 grams nonfat greek yogurt 
1/2 cup (120 ml) nonfat milk
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
4 grams sea salt
88 grams erythritol (can omit and use stevia and/or coconut sugar, but macros will vary)
Stevia to taste optional (if you like yours extra sweet like I do) 
Top with 28 grams sugar-free chocolate chips 

To Make:

Blend all ingredients except chocolate chips in your high speed blender or food processor. Pour into a 9 or 10 inch round baking pan lined with parchment paper. Top with your chocolate chips. Bake at 350 degrees for 38-40 minutes. Let cool. Slice into 8 pie slices. Top with whipped cream or my lightened up Vanilla Creami recipe.

Pro-tip: Recipes like this generally taste best the next day after all the flavors come together. You’ll find they taste even more decadent and sweeter.

    Hi! I made this yesterday but feel like the texture was really dense and like an under baked cookie. Do you weigh the beans before or after they are drained? 500g was 2 cans of beans…so maybe I should have weighed before draining?

    Not sure what else was different.

      Hi Stephanie! That’s right! It IS very dense and soft and I do weigh the beans after I drain them. Texture can also vary depending on what protein powder you use. Did you find the texture off-putting?
