After some yummy treats this week we need to have something that is healthy and will not make us grab those fat pants! So today I am posting Cookie Dough Dip. I know what you are thinking. That can't possibly be healthy. But it is. There is a secret ingredient that makes it healthy. Chickpeas.
Here is the recipe:
Cookie Dough Dip

- 1 1/2 cups chickpeas (1 can, drained) (250g)
- 1/8 tsp plus 1/16 tsp salt
- tiny bit over 1/8 tsp baking soda
- 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup nut butter (You can get away with using only 3 T. If you use peanut butter, it’ll have a very-slight “pb cookie dough” taste, so if you don’t want this, you can sub oil.)
- up to 1/4 cup nondairy milk (Start with 1 T, and add more as needed)
- Sweetener (see note below, for amount)
- 1/3 cup chocolate chips
- 2 to 3 T oats (or flaxmeal) (You can omit, but also omit the milk if you do)
Add all ingredients (except for chocolate chips) to a blender or food processor, and blend until very smooth. Then mix in the chocolate chips.
I made two batches. One with the peanut butter/biscotti butter and one with oil. The one on the left is made with oil and not as firm. Michael loved both of them which says a lot! He is one picky eater! Of course both kids liked them but Kyra is not a fan of peanut butter so the second batch was made for her.
Hope you enjoy it!
