Chocolate Oatmeal Cookie Cake

4 Dec

So I had been eyeing this recipe (this is adapted from there) and others that similarly used a sneaky, secretly healthy ingredient in cakes… How excellent! A cookie-cake with extra protein!! Love the extra protein.

Made it this morning as Danielle came over and we chowed down after a run around downtown. Best served warm and with a dollop of Cool Whip on top.

Ingredients

  • 1 can white kidney beans (15 oz)
  • 3 tbsp apple sauce
  • 3/4 c quick oats
  • 1.5 tbsp canola oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • dash salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 c brown sugar
  • 1/2 c choco chips

Instructions

  • Preheat to 350
  • Blend everything (but choco chips) in food processor, very well. Stir in choco chips afterwards.
  • Pour into nonstick or PAM-ed baking pan. Bake for ~20 min.

This could definitely also work with raisins… I was thinking about making this with raisins and choco chips together. Mmmm.
