Deep Dish Gooey Cinnamon Roll Pie

Look into the spiral.

Cinnamon Roll Pie - How can something so decadent and GOOEY be so healthy?! ... I've brought this pie to countless parties, and NO ONE has guessed! @choccoveredkt

Swirly, twirly frosting.

You are getting very sleepy hungry…


See? Who says hypnosis doesn’t work?

Birthday Girl

A few weeks ago, my little sister flew in from Boston for Thanksgiving. Her birthday also falls close to the holiday, and therefore we held a special birthday dinner for her at my parents’ house.

My sister is a big fan of the Chocolate Chip White Bean Blondies.

So I was eager to try out my newest idea on her, especially since she isn’t a huge chocoholic. (She doesn’t like bananas either. Sometimes I wonder if we’re really related!)

Deep Dish Cinnamon Roll Pie

One of my Gluten Free Recipes

  • 1 cup quick oats
  • 2 cans garbanzo or white beans, drained and rinsed (500g after draining)
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 2 and 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 3 T canola or coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 and 1/2 cups sugar or sucanat (Feel free to use less if you’re used to healthy desserts. Or sub some of the sugar with stevia if desired.)
  • 2 T cinnamon

Blend all ingredients very, very well in a food processor. Pour into an oiled pan. (I used a 10-inch springform pan, but you can use a smaller pan if you want a really deep-dish pie.) Cook at 350F for around 35 minutes. Let stand at least 10 minutes before removing from the pan. I haven’t tried subbing the sugar with agave, but I do know that many readers have had successfully used agave in my chocolate-chip cookie pie (a similar recipe). So I *think* it would work here as well.

If desired, frost the pie with Creamy Cinnamon Roll Frosting.


Oh wait, yes we’re related.

Just look at us! Smile

Do you and your siblings look alike?

    Everyone says my youngest sister and I look alike- we’ve even had that awkward moment where we have to mention that were not actually the sister they want, it’s the other one! It’s kind of funny actually, because I’m 4 years older than her!

  2. Barb says

    I can’t wait to try this! I have two younger sisters, one is my spitting image but my other is tall, blonde, and blue-eyed – the opposite of me, essentially! You can definitely tell that you and your sister are related! Great pic!

  3. Sarah says

    I am going to make this pronto! Do you think that would be good for company? Also i have 5 other siblings (youngest is 9 months old)- who look NOTHING like me but all look like each other! Weird fact: we used to live near and go to church with two of our cousins ( Jessica and Jennifer) who are sisters and also dont look alike. But when people see me and Jennifer they ask if we are sisters. When people see my sister and Jessica they ask if they are twins! Weird, huh?

    p.s.- you and your sister are so pretty!

  4. ilana says

    Me and my sibs (2 sisters and one brother) all have very strong resemblance to each other; our voices (me and my sisters) are the same too – can barely tell us apart on the phone. In terms of the recipe, I’m addicted to gingerbread – do you have a similar recipe with gingerbread and/or would you just add ginger to this recipe? look forward to hearing back.

  5. Val says

    This recipe looks scrumptious, just like every other one!

    You and your sister really do look alike!! My little sister and I don’t look anything alike. The only thing we both have is a chin dimple, and we both hate it haha.

  6. Erin says

    Yum, Katie! I can’t wait to try this. My sister is two years older than me. I’m the only blonde of my siblings and I so her and I always thought we looked quite different. But as we get older, more and more people tell us we look alike. You and your sister definitely look related. 🙂

  7. Mandy says

    You guys are so cute! Is your sister a vegan too? Makes me wonder about the nature vs. nurture thing for being good looking :p

  8. Kit-Kat says

    Yum Yum!
    Oh, I love cinnamon so much! Both that and pumpkin pie spice is one of my favorite holiday spices. I would love to try this recipe out!

  9. Amelia says

    I see the resemblance for sure! My brother and I don’t look near as similar as we used to… I’ve dyed my hair a lot, and we’ve both filled out differently.

    The cookie/blondie looks yummy… I think I’ll make it soon!

  10. Emily @ Glitz Glam Granola says

    Mmmm that cinnamon roll pie looks delicious! Since it’s cinnamon roll flavor, that can totally be considered breakfast… right?! 😉 And you and your sister look so much alike! I have two older brothers and people say I look like both of them, depending on which one I’m with! I personally don’t see it though!

  11. Simone says

    Hi, this looks amazing but I just have a question, i don’t do well with oats… Can you sub with anything else? Thanks!

  12. katie @KatieDid says

    Now that we are all getting older I see tons of similarities between my three brother’s and I. Certain pictures I’ll be like WO I’m exactly like Sean here. Which is strange to me because when we were younger we were all entirely different looking. You two are so gorgeous! Glowing 🙂

  13. Michele says

    *I* don’t think my sister and I look a ton alike… but there’s a picture of her from a few Christmases ago that my dad thought was a picture of me.

    My DAD.

    Hi Katie,
    Firstly, I must say I’m so delighted to have discovered ur website! I recently started getting into baking, but have really gained too much weight from that, and for me, unlike u, that’s really not good!
    I wanted to ask you – ur recipes call for putting the cans of chickpeas in a blender, but when I tried to make the big cookie recipe, the chick peas wouldn’t blend! They just get stuck in the machine, and I ended up having to mash them with a fork, which didn’t do a very good job! Is there anything I should be doing differently, like adding some liquid, or blending without other ingredients and then adding the rest…? Thanks!

    • Chocolate-Covered Katie says

      I don’t recommend using a blender for this recipe. I use a food processor, and it mashes them up perfectly. But the one time I used my Vita-mix, it did exactly what you said. So if you have a fp, I’d use that. (If you MUST use a blender, maybe try it in a few batches?)
