RECIPE: Healthy Cookie Dough Dip

Hey y'all! Ever wanted to eat a bunch of cookie dough and not feel like the biggest glutton in the world afterwards? Then this recipe is for you. 

This tastes like edible heaven- chocolatey and smooth and absolutely sinful. (funny, because heaven). It does NOT taste healthier than its eggy and unsafe counterpart in anyway...but it is! Oh yeah, and no butters/oils whatsoever. Can you say win-win? 


Ingredients (apologies for the photo quality)

  • 1 can of white (northern beans)- drained and rinsed
  • 1/3 cup applesauce (I used berry because that's all I had)
  • 3/4 cup quick oats
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar (I used 3/4 cup it was honestly too sweet)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 - 1 cup CHOCOLATE CHIPS to taste
Instructions: 
1. Throw all ingredients except chocolate chips and 1/4 cup oats into a food processor. I wouldn't recommend using a blender, because the food processor chops more finely, which is important for this dip. 
2. Based on texture, add remaining 1/4 cup oats slowly. It should be about as thick as hummus when you're done. Empty into a bowl and mix with chocolate chips! Chill for 5-10 minutes and enjoy!




Since this is technically a dip, I ate it with some crackers from Trader Joe's and it was delicious! My brother, on the other hand, ate it with a spoon. 

Please please please pin this recipe to Pinterest using the "Pin it!" buttons at the center of each image and tell me how it was! Feel free to email me at himahearts@gmail.com if you have any questions. 

Peace out, girl scout.

  1. You did it wrong. It's cookie dough dip. It should be eaten with a spoon. He had the right idea.
