Chocolate chip cookie pies may be the most mouth-watering treat on the planet, but they can be rather harsh on your waistline. Thanks to this vegan version, you can have your pie and eat it too, without worrying about the calorie count. The key is using garbanzo beans instead of flour and eggs. Don’t let this make you nervous, though – it tastes just as good (if not better) than your traditional pie.
