This fun little snack has long been on my list of “must try” recipes, so not long ago, I decided to give it a whirl!

And y’all, I would be crazy if I didn’t say that it wasn’t amazing. Delicious, fantastic, stunning, and fabulous also came to mind. But I shouldn’t ramble…

I always find it so wonderful that you can transform the healthiest of ingredients into something that is totally opposite of its original inspiration. I mean, this “indulgent” dessert dip has a base of beans{!}. Is that not absolutely crazy? I mean, who would have thought of taking said ingredient and deciding to throw it in with traditional chocolate chip cookie dough materials?

…if I could, I would like to give them a hug, or at least a high-five.

This dip is the perfect snack for anyone who has a sweet tooth and can’t say no to multiple spoon dips when making cookie dough, for the person who likes to munch on chocolate chips {I mean, who doesn’t do that?!}, or just anyone who like sweet treats. You will fool even the pickiest of eaters with this snack. And the best part is that you can indulge without feeling guilty! The beans are packed with fiber and vitamins, the nut butter adds in GOOD-FOR-YOU healthy fats, and there is minimal sugar. You could even swap out the chocolate chips for extra dark chocolate to get the antioxidant benefits.

But I won’t judge if you want to up the ante and use mini chocolate chip cookies for your dunkers. Just sayin’.

Sneaky Cookie Dough Dip {recipe adapted from Chocolate-Covered Katie}

The best way to indulge in all the goodness of cookie dough, but without the guilt! This dip will fool even the pickiest of eaters; they’ll be going back for seconds, and then thirds!

Ingredients:

1-1/2 cups chickpeas or white beans, drained and rinsed very well

1/8 tsp. salt

1/8 tsp. baking soda

2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

1/4 cup nut butter of choice {my homemade peanut butter works excellent here!}

up to 1/4 cup milk, only if needed

1/4 to 1/2 cup brown sugar

1/3 to 1/2 cup chocolate chips

2 to 3 Tbsp. oats

To Prepare:

Add all ingredients {except for chocolate chips” into the body of a good food processor, and process until very smooth. This will take anywhere from 3 to 5 minutes. If the mixture is too thick, drizzle in a tiny bit of milk until desired consistency is reached.

Fold in the chocolate chips and scoop into a dish. Garnish with graham crackers, sliced fruit, or cinnamon-sugar toast points. Enjoy!
