Healthy Chocolate Chip Pie

OK I know you're all thinking healthy chocolate chip pie how is that possible? All I can say is, it is, and it's delicious. I wish I could take full credit for this recipe, but I found it in one of my favorite blogs Chocolate Covered Katie. I changed the original recipe a little bit by adding kale and avocado, and not using oil. You can find the original recipe here. This recipe is gluten free, vegan and delicious.  This would make a really delicious birthday cake or treat for little ones 12+ months.

Here's what you need:
1 can garbanzo beans drained and rinsed
1 to 2 handfuls organic kale
1/2 large avocado
1 cup organic quick cooking oats
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup organic applesauce
1/3 cup peanut butter
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350F. Put all ingredients (except chocolate chips) in a large food processor and blend until smooth. Add chocolate chips and stir. Spray a deep pie dish with cooking spray.  Pour batter into pie dish and bake for 45-50 minutes. The outside should be golden and crisp, while the inside should be  like a fudge texture. Let cool for 5 to 10 minutes and enjoy!
