I love tricking my girls into eating even healthier by sneaking healthy foods into desserts.
Today I made something that I have been planning for a long time now, chocolate chip cookie dough dip. I decided to add peanut butter as well because well, everything is better with peanut butter!
The secret ingredient in this dip is actually chickpeas! Not that the girls don’t like chickpeas, but sneaking them in this cookie dough is just another way to get them to eat even healthier.
Plus, I might just love tricking them. 😉
Secret Ingredient Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip
A smooth peanut butter cookie dough dip sprinkled with sweet chocolate chips. No one guess that the secret ingredient in this dip is chickpeas!
Serves at least 4, if you are sharing 😉
- 1 (540 ml) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
- 1/2 cup natural peanut butter
- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
- 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 3/4 cup vegan chocolate chips
Drain and rinse the chickpeas and add them to your food processor.
Add the peanut butter, maple syrup, milk and vanilla and process a few minutes, until smooth.
Place the chickpea dough into a medium mixing bowl and add the chocolate chips. Mix until combined.
Grab a spoon and EAT!
Interesting! I’ll have to try that. I can only really trick my husband though.
Sneaky — but it looks really good 🙂
Yes! I love this. Using chickpeas is a great idea!
oil-free, isn´t there oil in peanut butter? But it sounds like a great cake/cupcake frosting or even no-bake cake (with some kind of crust, of course). Or just plain by the spoonful 🙂
No added oil in natural PB, just peanuts. 🙂
yeah I meant the peanuts, they consist of 50% oil. gosh I still love nut butters of any kind 🙂
Me too! The fat from nuts is natural and healthy! 🙂
What a great idea! You have my wheels turning as to where else I can be sneaky with my kids food!
Tiffany, this is fantastic!! PB, chick peas, chocolate chips — three favorites combined into one delicious snack and new fave! Just finished making my first batch…already taste-tested it and cannot wait to snack on some after dinner tonight. Thanks for this and all your great recipe ideas!! 🙂
