My older daughter had her cheer squad pasta party and wanted to bring a dessert that she could eat=vegan and that the other girls would enjoy too. This chocolate chip cookie cake seemed to be the answer.
The recipe is from Chocolate Covered Katie and it looked and sounded amazing.
The ingredients :
2 cans of garbanzo beans/chick peas, rinsed and drained
1 cup quick oats
3 T canola oil
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup chocolate chips
Rinse and drain the chick peas well.
Blend everything (except the chocolate chips) well in a food processor. My food processor is pretty old so I processed the chickpeas first then added the remaining ingredients.
Keep processing until the 'batter' looks smooth and consistent.
Stir in the chocolate chips. This wasn't working too well in the food processor bowl so I poured it all out into another bowl for better stirring.
So, I had an extra bowl to wash..so what! I should have done this in the first place.
Learn from my mistakes, people!
Go ahead have a taste of that delicious batter..no raw eggs to worry about.
Pour into an oiled pan. I used a 9 inch spring form.
Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes.
Let stand for 10 minutes before removing from pan (if you can restrain yourself that long).
This is best, served warm. Rich, gooey and chocolatey-delicious!
Happy Valentine's Day!
Go make this for someone you love (including yourself).
