Cookie Cake Surprise!

Alright so I know everyone gets nervous when the word “surprise” comes at the end of a dessert. In my family surprises usually mean that the meat on your plate is not actually beef like you thought but cow tongue! But this is actually a good surprise! A low calorie delicious surprise. All right Ill come out and say it, I put garbanzo beans in the cake. You would never have guessed it in a million years. Another perk about this cake is that its gluten free! Just a warning, my next couple of posts might be gluten free cooking! My new cooking/baking buddy has celiacs disease (cant eat gluten) which gives me a great new opportunity to test my cooking skills!


2 cans of garbanzos

1 cup of oats

1/4 cup of applesauce

3 tbsp of canola oil

1/2 tsp of baking soda

2 tsp of baking powder

1/2 tsp of salt

1 and 1/2 cups of brown sugar

1 cup chocolate chips


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Take out a pie pan and spray it well with oil. Really make sure it is coated because gluten free mixes have a terrible tendency to stick to the pan.

Pour all of the ingredients except for the chocolate chips  in a food processor and make sure it mixes very well. (You dont want to have garbanzo beans in the cake! )Mix in the chocolate chips to your finely ground cake mixture and plop it into your pan.

Bake for 35 minutes or until the toothpick comes out clean.

    Just fyi, be careful with the oatmeal. It is not always gluten free. Apparently there is cross contamination from the plants that process the oats bc they also process wheat, rye, etc.. You need to read and be sure you get the gluten free ones! Bob’s Red Mill sells a gluten free oatmeal. Quaker Oats and store brands usually are contaminated!!!!!
