Growing up, my mom made a special dessert that I absolutely loved; Cookie Pie. I’m pretty sure it was a recipe created out of convenience but nevertheless it was one of my favorite desserts that she made. Making individual cookies and taking multiple batches of cookies in and out of the oven can be quite time consuming. So instead she baked all the cookie dough together in a pie pan. Hence came the name Cookie Pie.
I decided transform her recipe into a mini version which I have creatively named Mini Cookie Pie. The mini size is achieved by baking the dough in a muffin tin instead of a pie pan.
These Mini Cookie Pies are based off her original recipe with a few minor changes. I wouldn’t go so far as to call them healthy but even when I make treats I like to cut out the processed sugar when possible. The original recipe called for white sugar and brown sugar which I replaced with honey and coconut sugar. They turn out rich and chocolaty with just enough sweetness.

Mini Cookie Pie
- 1 cup butter
- 1 cup natural peanut butter
- 1/2 cup raw honey
- 1/2 cup coconut sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
- 2 cups oats
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a muffin tin with butter.
Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, blend together butter, peanut butter, honey, sugar, and eggs until creamy.
In a medium bowl, stir together flour, oats, baking soda, and salt.
Slowly add in the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and mix until well combined.
Stir in chocolate chips.
Spoon cookie dough into muffin cups, fill 3/4 full. Bake for 12 minutes until golden brown.
Mini Cookie Pie is the perfect dessert for bringing to a gathering. The recipe makes about 20 pies and can easily be halved or doubled depending on your needs. I love making meals for new moms, church members, and friends and this dessert is a great addition to those meals.
Your friends and family will love you forever if you make this delicious dessert for them! You will definitely want to keep some for yourself too though!
