Healthy Cookie Dough Dip

Healthy Cookie Dough Dip BannerLet’s face it, the best part about making chocolate chip cookies is licking the spoon. I don’t care that there is raw egg in it and I’m willing to roll the dice on getting sick. It’s just that good.

On the flip side, I can truly live without all of the sugar, butter and other “evil” ingredients that go into chocolate chip cookies.

That my friends is where this recipe comes in.

I’m sure you’ve seen this on Pinterest a million times and much like the Energy Bites I blogged about yesterday, you’ll find tons of variations on this too.

Ingredients
  1. 1 15 ounce can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  2. 1/4 cup creamy natural peanut butter (or your favorite nut/seed butter)
  3. 2 Tbsps honey
  4. 1 Tbsp pure maple syrup
  5. 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  6. 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life Chips)
Instructions
  1. 1. Combine all of the ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth.
  2. 2. Transfer to a bowl, cover and place in the fridge to chill.
  3. 3. Serve with graham crackers, apples or just eat with a spoon.
Notes
  1. I don't know exactly how this would fit into the 21 Day Fix program, so I would wait the 21 days to try it. However, if you have a party coming up and know you'll be temped by things, make this and swap a yellow container for some. At the very least, you'll know it's healthier than other dips or something from the brownie/cookie platter.

Who knew the chickpeas could be so versatile?! I certainly never would have thought to turn them into a cookie dough dip. Hats off and a million thanks to the genius who did!

This recipe does have more of a peanut butter cookie dough flavor to it, then what you’d get from licking the spoon of your favorite cookie dough batter. To cut back on that, you could use less PB in the dough, try cutting it back to 3 Tbsp and see how it is from there. If it’s too stiff, you could always thin it out with some almond milk.

I enjoyed this as a dip for my apple…and I may have shoved a few spoonfuls into my face as well. I think this is a great, protein filled alternative to actual cookie dough and it would make a great dessert dip for parties too!

Have you tried making Healthy Cookie Dough Dip before? Did you a recipe like this or one that uses oats as well? If you’ve tried both, which did you enjoy more?
