Cookie Dough Dip!

So as we all may or may not know, I've been on a weight loss journey for a little over a year now. I'm always on the hunt for new recipe ideas and healthy alternatives.

I have a MAJOR sweet tooth, so the hardest part for me is finding "healthy" dessert recipes. I mean, is there even such a thing or am I totally fooling myself?

I recently stumbled across a blog called Chocolate Covered Katie. This girl's blog is my go-to for tasty treats that I won't feel guilty eating! I found her site through my faaaaaaaavorite foodie site, Taste Spotting. My favorite recipe so far is the Cookie Dough Dip recipe, which I have made and devoured twice. This recipe does not last very long in this household, even with one very picky Ashley running loose.

In fact, I had to have her eat it before I told her what was in it, otherwise she wouldn't have tried it. She kept taking spoonfuls of it and asking, "How does this even work? I don't understand..." LOL

So now that I have found love for this recipe, I will bring it to you with my modifications. When you are done, you will have something that is the EXACT texture and flavor of raw cookie dough, without all the guilt!

You will need:
*1 can (429-525g) chickpeas (yes, chickpeas)
*1/8 tsp salt
*1/8 tsp baking soda
*2 tsp vanilla extract
*3 tbsp Peanut Butter & Co White Chocolate Wonderful
*1/2 cup skim milk
*2 packets truvia
*1/3 cup chocolate chips
*2 tbsp raw oats

Dump everything except the chocolate chips into a food processor (I use a Ninja blender & pulse slowly - you don't want a smoothie!). Pulse until it all comes together and everything has broken down. I then separate half of the chocolate chips and pulse those in, just to infuse that chocolate flavor. Remove from the processor and stir in the remaining chocolate chips. Use cookies, crackers, spoons, hands, whatever you can find, to scoop up and enjoy!!!

Ingredients for success!!!

It's so hard not to eat it straight from the Ninja!

I gussied this up with graham crackers, but secretly those are just for show. I totally eat this with a spoon.

This is so delicious, so decadent, so amazingly good... Keep in mind, all of the ingredients I used can be found at your local Wal*Mart. There isn't anything fancy in there that you'll need to order online or anything like that.

If you make this, please let me know what you think! And thanks again to the original creator of this recipe, Chocolate Covered Katie!
