Cookie Dough Dip

I like to troll a few other blogs. Ok, who am I kidding, my Google Reader is FULL of other blogs I love. One of them is Chocolate Covered Katie who has a healthy dessert blog. I drool looking at the delicious creations she comes up with. The other day she posted a Blondie Batter Dip which she made sound and look so heavenly despite the strange ingredient. But I decided I wanted to try it.

Dear lord, this stuff is amazing.
I honestly can’t believe this tastes EXACTLY like cookie dough. The appearance of it isn’t the most appealing, some friends were a little skeptical to try because of the color and texture but once they did they were hooked. And no one could believe what it was made from!

With the help of Mr. Fitness, we did a nutritional breakdown. It’s fairly high in fat so definitely something to eat as a treat. There is a low-fat version I tried but it wasn’t as good¬†originally¬†so I’m still fine tuning that, but as soon as I get the recipe right I will share it.

Without further adeu, here is the delicious chocolate chip cookie dough dip recipe:

1 1/2 cup drained chickpeas
heaping 1/8 teaspoon salt
heaping 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup nut butter (I use Adam’s Natural Peanut Butter, delish)
1/4 cup non-dairy milk (I used dairy milk in the original batch but made a second batch with coconut milk and it didn’t affect the taste whatsoever)
Sweetner (I used 1/4 cup of Agave Nectar, I’m trying to figure out how much Stevia would work to bring down the calories a bit more)
1/3 cup chocolate chips (I used dark chocolate chips)

Add all ingredients except chocolate chips into blender (hello Magic Bullet!) and blend until smooth then stir in chocolate chips.

This makes about 8 servings. Each servings has:
150 calories
6.25 grams fat
4 grams protein
20 grams carbs

I took this to my Clothing Club yesterday with a fruit tray and it went over VERY well. Who knew chickpeas could be so heavenly?! Definitely encourage you to try this out next time you’re craving some cookie dough, just try not to eat the whole thing in one sitting…

      It comes highly recommended. I am itching to nail down the low fat one too so I don’t have to feel quite so guilty binging on it!

    Wow, chickpeas!? I never, ever would of guessed! I think it’s definitely something I’d have to taste because I just can’t get past thinking that it’s like hummus with chocolate chips! I totally know that it’s not but I can’t even imagine how it would taste! :) That’s amazing!

      I know, it’s such a different ingredient and you wouldn’t associate it with cookie dough, but I promise it’s amazing. I took it to a potluck lunch at work today and all my coworkers liked it!
