Or what I like to call Dessert Hummus.

Kim, the same Kim who sent me the banana soft-serve link, has done it again. In my inbox sat this link to Cookie Dough Dip on ChocolateCoveredKatie.com. As soon as I saw it I HAD to try it.

I jumped up from my desk and grabbed all the ingredients in a frenzy…

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip - kitchen

THIS is why my kitchen is constantly a mess! I’m always trying new things and I’m usually doing it in the half hour I have before Little Bean wakes up. Today I was especially messy as I was already in recipe mode working on something for The Laughing Cow.

I made my version of the “cookie dough” immediately and immediately I was in love. It had the smooth texture of hummus with a nutty twist without the chocolate chips…

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip - step 1

Yup.. that’s my finger mark!

With the chocolate chips? I was in love. I seriously had to stop myself by throwing it in the fridge.

The graham crackers as dippers was just simply perfect.

I didn’t make mine too sweet. In a way it didn’t need to be sweet. Yet it was very dessert like and oh my word FILLING. I ate about 1/3 of it and I was STUFFED. If you want it more on the sweet-side simply up the honey.

here’s what I did…

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip

  • I can of chickpeas drained and rinsed
  • 1/8 tsp of salt
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tbsp (32g) of Natural Peanut Butter
  • 2 tbsp (42g) Honey
  • 2 tbsp (20g) of whole roasted flaxseeds ground (I buy them whole and grind myself-they last longer)
  • About 1/4 cup of almond milk
  • 3 tbsp mini chocolate chips (42g)

Put the chickpeas, salt, vanilla, peanut butter, honey and flaxseeds in the food processor.

Turn on and drizzle the milk in a little at a time to get things started. I used the whole 1/4 cup.

Once smooth fold in the chips. Reserve some to sprinkle on top.

Serve alongside graham crackers.

    Made this yesterday. Small changes were wheat germ instead of flaxseed, almond butter instead of PB, a bit more honey and milk, and added cinnamon. My family really enjoyed it- both on apples, bananas, and a plain spoon! :) Reply
