Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Pizookie Pie!

A giant, gooey chocolate chip pumpkin pizookie.

So what the heck is a pizookie???

It’s something between a pie and a cookie. A soft, chocolatey, fudgy delicious deep dish chocolate chip cookie.

Sounds pretty fantastic, right?!

Trending Right Now: Pumpkin Banana Bread

Recipe from @choccoveredkt... I've made this recipe about 1000 times and no one ever believes it's healthy... One of the best desserts I've ever made:


My roommate, Emily, and I invited a bunch of friends over for a housewarming party Saturday night, and I wanted to christen the new oven in style.

So I figured it was a great time to test out an idea I’d been meaning to try for a few months.

Enter this pumpkin deep dish cookie pie–with lots of chocolate chips–reminiscent of the Pizookies they sell at the chain restaurant, BJ’s Brewhouse (if BJ’s made a pumpkin version, which they sadly don’t).

Have you ever heard of a pizookie? Apparently, the name is a combination of “pizza” and “cookie” and was first coined by BJ’s Brewhouse. Their website says BJ’s offers Red Velvet pizookies and Triple Chocolate ones.

Hmmmm… what flavor should I try next?

To say this pumpkin pizookie was a huge success would be an understatement!

More than one person at the party said it was the best pie he or she had ever eaten, and I think every single crumb was gone just ten minutes after I served the pie.

Seriously, do not worry about serving the following recipe to a crowd of “non-healthy” eaters. They will devour this healthier chocolate chip pie like there is no tomorrow.

You’ll find a similar number of positive comments and rave reviews if you look at my white bean blondie and Chickpea Cookie Dough Dip posts.

I know it seems weird, but these bean desserts are actually HUGE crowd pleasers.


Gooey Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Pizookie Pie


Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Pizookie

(gluten free!)

Inspired by the Deep Dish Cookie Pie.

  • 2 cans white beans or garbanzos, drained and rinsed (500g total, once drained)
  • 1 cup quick oats
  • 1/4 cup pureed pumpkin (or butternut squash or sweet potato)
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 and 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil or coconut oil, or 1/4 cup almond butter
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar, unrefined if desired (For a sugar-free version, use xylitol. I know some readers have successfully made my original pie with maple syrup, but I haven’t tried.)
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Blend everything except the chips very well in a food processor. (A blender can sometimes work, but the taste and texture will be much better if you use a food processor.) Blend until it’s super-smooth. Mix in chips, and pour into a 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 35 minutes. Let stand at least 10 minutes before removing from the pan.

    I went straight to the kitchen after i read the recipe! i added 1/2 bag of Tollhouse chocolate and peanut butter chips as well as 1/4 cup of graham crumbs. Can’t wait for it to finish cooking!

  2. sarika says

    Katie, firstly thanks for being a Godsend/angel in disguise/countess in chocolate armour for us sweet toothed health conscious folk. Secondly, I wanted to find out (and I am sure many on this site have this question) how to convert this or other cake recipes into muffin recipes in terms of baking times etc. The thing is my partner likes his baked goods significantly sweeter than me and so I have ended up making something halfway which neither has ended up liking…muffins may be the way to go..what say?? thanksss in advance…

  3. Madison says

    Also, what did you use to grease the pan for this, anything? I didn’t see it stated in the directions above. Thanks 🙂

    Hi Katie- I wanted to make the pumpkin chocolate chip pizookie for my daughter on her birthday (which is tomorrow) and I was trying to find the serving size and nutrition information but was unable to locate it. Maybe I am missing the link, which is completely possible since I am technologically challenged. Anyway, could you please share the information because I really want to make and eat the whole thing (save a small piece for the birthday girl). Thank You so much- my daughter, Hannah, introduced me to your website and she loves, loves, loves your recipes!!! She is turning 17 tomorrow!

    • Chocolate Covered Katie says

      Hey there! Sorry for the delayed response… I just saw your message now. I don’t actually have nutrition information for this recipe, as it was posted before I began including nutrition facts. Sorry I could not be more helpful or timely 🙁

      • Zuleyka Murillo says

        I’ve followed your blog for a long time and figured it was about time I ask you about an apple pie?
        I adore and make your recipes on a weekly basis! (:
        & was like so she has either forgotten about apple pie or hasn’t nailed a good recipe, but you are too insanely great to not be able to nail an apple pie?
        So glad you might start cooking up some ideas on an apple pie(: Because I’ve been eagerly waiting for like 2 years.

        Thank you very much for all your healthy desserts(:
        God Bless you!!!

        I also made the apple crumble today (used pears instead of apples since these are plentiful in my house right now). I’m not sure that I’m a big fan of any crumble but I would be willing to try an apple pie. Looking forward to seeing that recipe (and, of course, eating the pie itself).

  5. JRYuhas says

    Just tried the chocolate pumpkin pizookie and it was incredible !!!!
    My son said that it was even better than the chocolate chip deep dish cookie pie. He preferred the texture of the pumpkin and said that he would definitely eat more……Now, I just have to get more chocolate chips and I’ll make another one (first one didn’t make it all the way through to cool off).

  6. Kathy says

    Hi Katie! This looks so amazing!! What unrefined sugar did you choose to make this recipe ? And will brown rice syrup work too?

    • Jason Sanford says

      Coconut sugar or evaporated cane juice both work well! For brown rice syrup, you’d have to experiment, but be sure to report back if you do!

  7. Carrie says

    For sweetener I used 1/2 c of reduced calorie Sukrin gold brown sugar and 1/2c of monk fruit. And almond butter in place of oil. Came out amazing! Kids description, gooey!

  8. Molly says

    If I wanted to make it ahead of time for thanksgiving should I bake it and then refrigerate and then reheat? Or what do you recommend is the best way to have it done? I will be traveling in a car for 3 hours as well with it :/ thanks!

  9. Lauren says

    Hi Katie,
    I appreciate your blog very much. I’ve tried several of your recipes, and I’ve enjoyed each and everyone of them. Thank you for your efforts.
    This is or may be a weird question, but I was wondering if your “pies” could also be made in 8×8″ glass baking dishes? I’m sure I could google this, but I was wondering what your thoughts were specifically.
    Thank you in advance,

  10. Hannah says

    Hi! Quick question, i’d love to make this tomorrow! However, one can of chickpeas is closer to 500g. Did you mean 500g per can, or 500g total for the recipe?
