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:
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…
