Healthy Cookie Dough Dip – Yes, Really!

Double snack attack today :) .  Raise your hand if you like to eat cookie dough!  I was, and still am, a cookie dough fanatic.  Most of the time I make cookies just to eat the cookie dough.  I grew up licking the cookie dough bowl, the brownie batter bowl – I’d even steal raw cookies off the cookie sheet.  Yeah I know, raw dough can make you sick blah blah – my Mom let me eat it and I’m alive and well :) .  Thanks, Mom!

For those of you that love cookie dough but don’t like to eat it raw because of the whole egg thing, or for those of you that just can’t spare the indulgence – meet healthy cookie dough dip!  Okay, so it’s not as healthy as some foods, but it’s a whole lot healthier than cookie dough. When I first saw the recipe for this on Katie’s blog, I was intrigued.  I was a bit skeptical too.  Cookie dough dip?  Made with chickpeas? Umm…  But, I finally decided to give it a try.  And let me say, Katie – you are a genius!  This dip really does taste like cookie dough and is so good!  You can eat it with anything really, but I’d suggest dipping fruit in it to keep it healthy :) .

Tempted?  Teddy was!

Here’s how you can whip up this mouthwatering concoction:

Ingredients.

Put all ingredients except chocolate chips into food processor.

Grind until smooth and add chocolate chips.

Enjoy!

  1. cute blog! just saw this on pinterest, and I’ve seen this from Katie’s blog too, I am totally skeptical too! I am afraid that because I know its chickpeas, I’ll be able to taste them! Could you?!

    • No you can’t taste the chickpeas (though I do like chickpeas so I wouldn’t be offended by their taste). It really tastes like cookie dough, with a hint of peanut butter. Give it a try!!

    I’ve made cookie dough hummus/dip before. Love it! Very addicting, too! Oh, my mom let me at raw cookie dough all the time but would always add that it would give me worms. Never had ‘em and still dip my fingers in the bowl all the time!! :)
