Chocolate Chip Cookiedough

I have seen several renditions of this recipe on various blogs such as Not The Normal Teenage Fare and Chocolate-Covered Katie and I originally passed it up because I thought there was no way, it was too good to be true. Out of part curiosity, part sheer boredom and an intense sweet tooth I decided, why not give it a try. Now when I tried it at first I didn’t like it but after refrigerating it overnight, it was unreal. I even had my coworker try it just to make sure my taste buds were not deceiving me. Yes friends, this is a healthy recipe for “cookie dough”.

Ingredients

  • 1 can chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained and rinsed
  • 3+ tablespoons of PB (I added more at the end because it didn’t taste quite right)
  • 1/4 cup of maple syrup
  • 1/8 teaspoon of salt
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup of almond milk
  • 1/8 teaspoon of baking soda
  • a dash or two of Stevia (or sugar) if desired
  • Chocolate chips

Directions

1. Throw it all in a food processor and mix until smooth. Dumb in your chockie chips stir and toss it in the fridge overnight. Wake up to an unbelievably tasty treat that you can literally eat by the spoonful and not feel (that) guilty. Glorious I tell you, just glorious.

I apologize in advance for this but we had a little doggie photo shoot last night before we went to bed and since I am totally obsessed with my babies, I just had to share these with you….

All three of my babies....so presh

    Yum yum yum!! I LOVE cookie dough and cookie dough “substitutes” because I wouldn’t want to eat it raw!

  5. I bought a jar of chick peas just for this purpose and still haven’t made it but I am pretty sure it had=s to be good because I have seen a zillion people who doubted but then loved it!

  8. Welcome to the “cookie dough hummus” bandwagon. 🙂
    Your pups are adorable! I love how they snuggle in the bed with you and your bf 🙂 They know where they belong 🙂

  9. I LOVE cookie dough dip! You’re right, straight from the food processor it still tastes rather beany and meh but once you give it time to mingle and chill the flavors are unreal! My favorite dipper is pretzels but honestly I’d rather eat it straight up!

    PS- your dogs are absolutely ADORABLE!
