Other guiltless desserts I love are Cheesecake Brownies, Chocolate Chip Clouds, Brownie Batter Pancakes and Red Velvet Pancakes with Cream Cheese Topping.

I can’t tell you how excited I am to share Katie’s new cookbook, Chocolate Covered Katie! I’ve admired Katie’s blog for years and have always been amazed by the sweets she dreams up and her healthy approach to making dessert. Oh and by the way, the back of her cookbook has a blurb from yours truly! Thumbing through her book I wanted to make so many things, but I’m a sucker for chocolate chip pie, so I knew I wanted to try this.

Katie says: “So famous it’s been featured on ABC’s Five O’Clock News, this gooey cookie pie sparked a complete beans-in-dessert revolution on the Internet…” I knew I HAD to make this! She has two versions, one with xylitol or sugar, and this more natural version using dates as a natural sweetener. If you prefer to skip the dates and use a sweetener, she used 1 1/2 cups.

I topped this with a little fat free vanilla frozen yogurt but that’s completely optional. Everyone in my house enjoyed this!

  1. This was shockingly good!! I had to use an 8” pan cause my 10” pan wasn’t fitting tight~ and it still came out great! I did use a food processor and couldn’t get it 100% smooth ~ and still, I’d make it again! Such a great alternative dessert. Thank you!

  2. I love this recipe! Thank you so very much for sharing. I even had a brand new food processor I was able to use. I’ve read most of the comments and I’m in some cases unpleasantly surprised. If I make a recipe that doesn’t turn out the way it should, then I look at what I did differently. I also follow WW and feel if the points are too high, then don’t eat it! I love all your recipes that I’ve tried and hope you continue to share. 

  3. Made this. If using food processor only add small amount of milk to dates. I did a cup at a time. Then put dates in a bow,  my food processor not big enough to have all ingredients in it. Did beans separate. Used coconut oil and put in the whole small, individual size of applesauce. I mixed all in bowl and added the chocolate chips. I used the WW app to calculate points. This has a total of198 points divide by 14 and that is 14.14285 points per 1/14 piece. Hope it taste good. Will update when I eat it. 

    • Update:  the pie was great tasting. Served to 5 other people they all like. Told them the ingredients after we ate it. 

  4. I was skeptical about this recipe as alternative dessert recipes don’t always turn out the best for me. But this one was a huge winner. At first I could tell it was an alternative sweetener but only in the first bite.  I love the ooey, gooey under baked cookie consistency. It was the perfect treat and even two of my kids ate it without question! One of them even had seconds! I’ll definitely be making this one again!

  5. These are delicious!!!  I will definitely be making these again.

    I do have a question about the WW Point count though.  When I calculate Points using the Nutrition information at the bottom of your recipe and when I use the recipe builder on the WW site, I get 10 points per serving for 14 servings and 5 points each if I change it to 28 servings (which is how I cut them as I found them quite large).  How did you calculate them as 5 points; did you use fresh dates instead of dried?

  6. I”ve run this through the WW recipe builder several times and the pointed items in the recipe total 157 sp which based on 14 servigns would be 11 points per serving not 5. Are there certain brands or methods that are reducing the points?

    • If you’re only using the nutritional information, it is drawing calories, sugar, carbs, etc from the 0 point food list. Beans and unsweetened applesauce both have no points. I would plug in all of the ingredients into the recipe builder and divide into 14 servings instead.

  7. I have made this with the dates and it came out exactly as expected.  It was a big hit.  I am wondering if it is possible to freeze this.  Any thoughts???

  8. I’m getting 7 freestyle points in the recipe builder! What am I doing wrong?

  9. Made this wonderful cookie yesterday.  So good!  Husband loves it (haven’t disclosed the ingredients yet, haha!). I really do think getting this to a smoothe consistency is the key.  Just as you instructed.  Thanks for another great recipe!

  10. I have GF rolled oats on hand but not the instant. Can I use those if I put them in a blender?

  11. Gina, I don’t know how you do it but this is another wonderful recipe.  You have such a talent and appreciate you sharing it?
