Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip. Need I say more? Oh, and it’s pretty darn healthy too. Uh huh. How can that be, you ask? Chickpeas is the answer. Magical, wonderful, neutral-tasting chickpeas. This healthy snack is vegan, gluten-free, refined sugar free, and can also be nut-free. Your kids will ask you for this every single day, and you can happily give it to them. They won’t believe you’re letting them eat cookie dough for a snack everyday, and you will win the “Parent of the Year” award. Congratulations!
My kids have been eating this for an after school snack and dessert for many years. This whole foods plant based dessert is sweetened with dates, so I feel good about letting my kids eat this by the spoonful.
How to make Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip
Chocolate chip cookie dough dip is made with just seven simple ingredients: chickpeas, dates, salt, oats, vanilla, seed or nut butter and chocolate chips. The oats are optional, but do add some texture to the dip. If you’re avoiding grains, then you can simply omit the oats.
You don’t need much forethought when making this, but the one thing you’ll have to do ahead is soak the dates in hot water for 10 minutes to soften them up. Save that soaking water, because you may need to add it to the food processor to help with the blending.
Next, throw everything except the chocolate chips in the food processor and let it whirl! Scrape down the sides a couple times throughout blending. Add some of the soaking water from the dates a tablespoon at a time if it’s having trouble blending. Process until the mixture is smooth and creamy. This will be wetter than a traditional cookie dough, but that’s what you want, because it’s a dip afterall!
Scrape the mixture into a bowl. The mixture will be warm from the dates and cooking water. You can add chocolate chips now, but they may melt slightly. Or allow to cool and add chocolate chips later, your call! Stir to combine. You can eat this dip right away, or put it in a covered container in the fridge and eat it chilled. Either way won’t let you down.
What to Eat with Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip
I like to eat this edible cookie dough with apples or gluten-free pretzels. Oh, the pretzels…sweet and salty…heaven. Graham crackers are another popular choice, but mostly my kids just eat it right out of a bowl with a spoon. But they still call it dip. Kids.
