Deep Dish Cookie Pie

A soft, gooey, and secretly healthy deep dish cookie pie – with melted chocolate chips in each unbelievable bite!

Deep Dish Cookie Pie

What is even better than a warm chocolate chip cookie?

If you answered, “Katie, nothing is better than a warm chocolate chip cookie,” you’ve obviously never met a chocolate chip cookie pie…

Especially not when it is topped with this reader favorite Keto Ice Cream, or my personal favorite Coconut Ice Cream Recipe.

I could sit here and tell you about how I was in charge of dessert for our neighborhood Memorial Day party. I could tell you about my desire to impress the neighbors with a sinful-tasting finale and then surprise shock them by revealing said sinful dessert was really not so sinful after all.

I could tell you how this desire became reality when my dessert was the hit of the party, with everyone raving about it and one neighbor even hiring me to make a pie for her husband’s birthday in June.

But really, you don’t want to know all of this, do you? You just want the recipe!

Gooey Deep Dish Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie

In comparison to your standard cookie pie—with its plethora of butter, eggs, and white flour—the above version is a much healthier alternative, while still tasting just as temptingly decadent and delicious.

Plus, you get a full 5 grams each of fiber and protein, thanks to the oats and chickpeas.

And I promise no one can tell that these ingredients are in there.

Deep Dish Cookie Pie – One of our favorite recipes! It tastes like eating a giant homemade chocolate chip cookie!… Recipe, as featured on ABC News: @choccoveredkt

This chocolate pie is a real crowd-pleaser, even with people who aren’t used to eating healthy desserts.

Imagine cookie dough in the form of a pie.

Side note: If you make 1/4 of the recipe, you can even put it in a mini springform pan for a baby pie. And if you make a half recipe in an 8×8 pan, you can have a healthy cookie cake like the ones at the Great American Cookie Co in the mall!

Deep Dish Cookie Pie

This gooey deep dish cookie pie is a huge hit at parties, and people always ask for the recipe!
4.84/5 (76)
Total Time 35 minutes
Yield 1 pie


  • 2 cans white beans or garbanzos, drained and rinsed (500g total, once drained)
  • 1 cup quick oats or almond flour
  • 1/4 cup applesauce or yogurt
  • 3 tbsp oil or 1/4 cup nut butter
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cup brown sugar or unrefined sugar (click for a Sugar Free Cookie Pie)
  • 1 cup chocolate chips


  • Blend everything except the chips very well in a food processor. Mix in chips, and pour into a greased pan. I normally use either a 10 or 9-inch springform pan. Cook at 350F for around 35-40 minutes. Let stand at least 10 minutes before removing from the pan. Some commenters have had success with a blender, but try that at your own risk and know the taste/texture will be better in a high-quality food processor.

    Oh my word.
    I think I just gained 5 pounds just from looking at that thing! I cannot believe how healthy something so amazingly Unhealthy-looking could be! Doing a little nutritional counting in my head, it really doesn’t come out too bad. I think you CAN call it healthy. After all, you’re getting whole grains and beans and fruit all packed into one delicious cookie dough pie!

      • Jaelyn says

        I made this last night and it was so good. I am only 13 years old and I can’t stop looking on this website for healthy deserts to make my family and friends!

    I’ve always said you were a genius. But Katie, this goes beyond genius!

    You’ve managed to take what is probably one of the most unhealthy desserts in existence and put a healthy spin on it. I bow down to your geniusness!

    • Shade says

      That would certainly be the case if I made this…I’m going to wait to try this recipe until I’m serving a CROWD…I don’t trust myself with it…healthy or NOT! LOL

      • Kahlia says

        I made this tonight to curb an INTENSE sugar craving, and the beauty of this dish (apart from the amazing taste) is that it’s made of hearty ingredients so you can’t actually eat too much without getting ridiculously full! I used half the ingredients because I don’t trust myself (I also replaced the sugar with 4 dates – it was more then sweet enough and I have a mouth full of sweet teeth), figuring that I would most certaintly demolish the entire thing, and I could only get through 1/4 (or 1/8 of the full recipe) before I literally could not force any more down. Perfect if you’re like me and you have a dessert addiction coupled with absolutely no self control 🙂

    • sarah caroline says

      Oh, does this just serve one? I have been searching for recipes all day and am feeling dumb! Was it 200 calories for the whole deal? I’m trying to make a birthday treat for a friend who had a heart attack several years ago, he eats so much garbage, I hoped for a “healthier” option, which this surely is, but now I’m confused as to how many this serves. Can anyone who has made it help? Thank you. I am a bit worried about my no food processor also but determined to make this 🙂

      • Megan says

        It’s not clear how many servings are in the pie, but 200 calories is not for the whole pie. 1.5 cups of sugar on it’s own has ~1000 calories. Definitely need to share it!

        • Laura says

          200 calories per serving, based on 12 servings. I used swerve sweetener instead of sugar. A little too sweet for me, but absolutely delish!!! I will use half the sugar next time :).

          • Diane says

            I used 1 c of swerve instead of the 1-1/3 that the recipe called for and it was sweet enough. I used 1/4c natural peanut butter and also omitted the hazelnut spread. It was delicious.

      • Judy says

        If you have a neighbor who has a food processor (my neighbors and I have that kind of relationship) or if you can borrow one for the special treat, it will really be a better texture, and that’s half of fooling the normally-unhealthy-Joe-who-needs-to-eat-healthier into not realizing that it is quite healthy. Yes, to answer your question, this is awesome for your friend. It does have sugar and chocolate, but dark chocolate has health benefits, and the rest is very healthy, high fiber, and no unhealthy fats. You’re a good friend!

      • CarlyC says

        When I plug the recipe into myfitnesspal I figured it to be 266 cal for 1/12 of the recipe, like a slice of the pie. Hope this helps!

    • Tanisha says

      Can I use chickpeas or white kidney beans instead as I am unsure what ‘white beans’ are? I am from the UK. Also do i need to cook them first or not?

      • Jason Sanford says

        As long as you’re using canned beans then no you don’t have to cook them first. Chickpeas or white kidney beans are both fine 🙂

  3. Megan says

    One word…AMAZING. I am in awe of your dessert creations! I can bake from recipes but I love your creativity and ability to create your own chocolately (yet healthier) masterpieces! I am seeing a deep-dish Snickerdoodle pie in your future…

  4. Vegan Gal says

    Ahhhhh vegan AND healthy AND chocolate?!? Best dessert ever! I’m making this for my next party. In fact I might just have to make up an excuse to have a party, just to make this :).

  5. Jessica says

    I am like a few other commenters in that beans in desserts are a little strange sounding to me. But Katie, I am seeing your blondies EVERYWHERE! Seriously like every single blog I read. So I think I need to try them, or this cake version. You can’t all be wrong, right?!

  6. Christine says

    This looks so great, i really want to try this!
    If I will use milk chocolate instead of dark chocolate, I’ll probably can cut down the added brown sugar, right?

    • sarah caroline says

      If you’re baking for vegans, or just really love chocolate, I have found that vegan chips are soooo much yummier. My theory is that there is more room for chocolate if there is no milk 🙂 And milk adds sugars, so vegan chips just always win for me. Except that I eat way too many out of the bag 😀 (Enjoy Life is the brand we use, found at regular grocery store, yay )

  7. Cait @ Beyond Bananas says

    I am SO angry with myself because I didn’t pick up chick peas at the store this weekend.. knowing very well that all I wanted to do was make some o fyour blondies.. or even better.. this pie!

  8. Jenny says

    WHOA. I think you killed me with that first photo. Cookie pie… Ice cream… Chocolate syrup… Gooey chocolate chips… Umm I think all of us can understand why you’re a little distracted and can’t think of a question of the day. Oh, I know, how about: are you making this already? Unfortunately I don’t think you’d get varied answers; they’d all just be: “Heck yeees!” The blondies were great, so it goes without saying I’m trusting you on this one! 😀

    So nice to hear that you and your dessert were the real stars of the party! 😉 Hope you had a fantastic Memorial Day Weekend!

  9. anonymous says

    as much as i am loving this pie, i am soooooooooooooo excited for the ice cream recipe you mentioned!
    🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
