Tasty Tuesday: Pizookie

Have you ever had a pizookie? My family only recently discovered the joy of pizookies! 🙂 What IS a pizookie you want to know? Well besides being a super fun word to say, it’s a cookie dessert that is shaped like a pizza…hence the name “Pizookie”.

When my kids learned about pizookies they of course wanted to try one. So after a little experimentation we came up with a homemade vegan version that got rave reviews from all three boys.

While this is by no means a healthy recipe, it’s certainly nice to have a few decadent dessert options in the ol’ recipe collection. Also *if* you are going to have a dessert, it’s usually much tastier and healthier when it’s homemade. Plus baking is just plain fun to do! 🙂

Ingredients:

1/2 cup coconut oil (liquid, but not warm)

1 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup milk of choice (almond, coconut, rice, soy, etc)

1 tablespoon vanilla

2 cups of flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup vegan chocolate chips

vanilla ice cream of choice (we like this brand)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375. Cream together oil and sugar. Mix in milk and vanilla. Set aside. Mix dry ingredients together. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix thoroughly. Stir in chocolate chips. Transfer dough to lightly greased pie pan and bake for approximately 15 minutes. Another fun idea is to bake the dough in cupcake pans (lightly greased with no liner) for mini individual sized pizaookies. My boys LOVED these. Allow pizookie to cool slightly before serving but not too much. You  definitely want the vanilla ice cream to ooze over the warm pizookie while eating it. YUM!

Take that fancy restaurant pizaookie! Delicious, homemade pizookies for a fraction of the cost and with far less questionable ingredients. 🙂
