Remember my kids? These ones? That won’t eat?
Just guess what it is they’re eating in this picture.
Well, yes it’s peanut butter chocolate chip cookie dough dip. But it’s made with chickpeas. And they even knew that. The 6yo helped make it (“It’s made from beans,” she warned her brother before we tried it).
It does still have a fair amount of sugar and chocolate in it. My kids knowingly, willingly ate beans, though. Small steps. Small steps.
This recipe comes from one of my new favorite blogs, Chocolate Covered Katie.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip
- 1 can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
- 1/8 t salt
- 1/8 t baking soda
- 1 t double vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup peanut butter
- 1/4 C skim milk
- 2/3 C sugar
- 3 T oats
- 1/2 a bag chocolate chips
Add all ingredients (except for chocolate chips) to a food processor, and blend until very smooth. Then mix in the chocolate chips.
Katie serves hers with graham crackers or eats it plain. We chose the latter.
