Snack versus Dessert

Just like the lower-fat Chocolate Chip Dip, the original snickerdoodle dip is much yummier. But this is still a tasty snack—just maybe not as decadent and dessert-like.

Lower-fat recipe: 

  • 1 1/2 cups chickpeas or white beans (1 can, drained and rinsed) (250g)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • heaping 1/8 tsp salt
  • sweetener (see note below, for amount)
  • 2 and 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • optional ingredients: a pinch cream of tartar, raisins

Blend all ingredients until very smooth.

**People with “normal” tastebuds will probably like 3/4c brown sugar. You can also use stevia, or even liquid sweeteners. Tastes differ, so just sweeten until it suits you!

Also, you can do a lower-fat version of the actual Snickerdoodle Blondies.
