Last week I discovered Katie’s Healthy Dessert Blog, and I was so excited to try her Cookie Dough Dip recipe. For some reason I was convinced that even though the recipe consisted mostly of smooshed up chickpeas, it would taste like cookie dough. I was being naive I guess. Today I made the “cookie dough”, and I was dissapointed. It was alright, but it didn’t taste the way I anticipated. I think I set my expectations too high, and I hoped for an exact replica of chocolate chip cookie dough that I could eat by the bowlful, instead of chocolate chip hummus.
I normally only share recipes that I love, but I want to love this one so badly! If you try this recipe, please let me know if you come up with any improvements. Next time I might leave out the nut butter (I used peanut butter which was a bit overpowering) and the oats (I wasn’t crazy about the oat texture in there). Also, it needs more chocolate chips!
