Cookie Dough Dip

Posted by on 24 January 2013 in Be Inspired, In The Kitchen | 2 comments

One of the best parts of baking cookies is eating the dough. As a kid I would sneak pinches while my mom was baking… as I began baking my own cookies I would take a more generous spoonful. By the time I was in my late 20’s I quit the charade and just made cookie dough and kept it uncooked in the fridge… let’s be honest, it’s SO MUCH BETTER as cookie dough!

A year ago I stumbled across the concept of Cookie Dough Dip. How could I not try this?! I quickly whipped up a batch – and it was just as quickly devoured. I was shocked at how much it tasted just like cookie dough. And the texture? Perfect.

Full disclosure here: this dip is technically a ‘healthy dessert’… but I promise you it is so delicious that no one is going to question the ingredients! I actually looked around online for a non-healthy version (because after posting my Black Bean Brownies I thought I might get a reputation posting another bizarre dessert!) and none of the other recipes seemed to match the taste and texture of cookie dough like this one. It just can’t be beat!

This dip is perfect for a movie night, an after school snack, a late night craving, or even to bring along to a Super Bowl party. You know you love cookie dough… you know you’re curious if this could possibly be good… give it a try!

Combine all ingredients (except milk and chocolate chips) in a food processor and process until smooth.  Add milk as needed until you reach your desired consistency. If you want to thicken it a bit, add a few more tablespoons of oats.

Transfer mixture to a bowl and stir in chocolate chips. Tiny chips would work well here, but we prefer dark chocolate so we went with the big guys.

Serve with graham crackers, apple slices, or just dig in with a spoon.

1 can white beans, drained and well rinsed

1/8th tsp salt

1/8th tsp baking soda

¼ cup (or more) nut butter

3 Tbs oats

2/3 cups brown sugar (or substitute with an unprocessed sugar such as agave or maple syrup)

¼ cup milk

½ cup chocolate chips

1. Place all ingredients, except milk and chocolate chips, in the bowl of a food processor and process until smooth.

I found this recipe (and modified it only slightly) on the fantastic ‘healthy dessert blog’ Chocolate Covered Katie. I highly recommend checking it out for some delicious and creative treats!

  1. Absolutely! This dip is fantastic with peanut butter! If I use peanut butter I choose one that has no added sugars – but really any brand will do. Enjoy!

  2. Sounds yummy! Can the nut butter be peanut butter? What did you use?
