Banana Cookie Dough Dip

The newest healthy cookie dough dip flavor – chocolate chip banana bread!

Healthy Cookie Dough Dip - I tried this and was shocked... it really does taste exactly like real cookie dough! (Repinned over 350k times) @choccoveredkt

What’s not to love???!

A new version of the Healthy Cookie Dough Dip.

The cookie dough dip is always especially popular around this time each year, because so many of you make it for football or Super Bowl parties.

I wanted to create a new flavor in time for the upcoming game day, in case you want to try it out on your friends! This banana cookie dough dip, inspired by my Healthy Banana Bread, tastes deliciously like unbaked banana bread batter and has the option of being completely refined-sugar-free as well. If you’ve never heard of the basic concept of this cookie dough dip before, rest assured it’s been tested by thousands of readers over the years, and even non-healthy eaters approve!

Cookie Dough Dip with Beans

Chickpea cookie dough dips seem to have suddenly become really popular, with companies now packaging them and selling different flavors in stores across the US, which I find so funny and amazing because I remember back when I first published the original version and people thought the idea of a bean-based cookie dough dip was absolutely crazy. Well, I guess some people still think the idea is crazy.

I’m constantly being asked if I wish that I’d packaged my recipe years ago, but the answer is an unequivocal no! By publishing my ideas online instead of selling a product in grocery stores, I get to have all the fun of creating recipes without any of the risk or stress of running a factory, printing off labels, transporting the products from the warehouse, or any of the countless other issues I’m sure companies must run into on a day-to-day basis. Maybe I didn’t make a million dollars from my cookie dough dip idea, but there are some thing worth way more than a million dollars.

Getting to see you all making and posting your own versions of my recipes on social media or writing in to tell me about how you brought the cookie dough dip to a party and surprised guests who couldn’t believe it wasn’t actual butter-and-flour cookie dough is definitely one of those things.

Chickpea Cookie Dough Dip

So now that banana bread cookie dough dip exists, what flavor chickpea cookie dough dip should I make next? Maybe mint chocolate chip? Or red velvet for Valentine’s Day? Or carrot cake for Easter? Would that be too crazy? Is anything too crazy anymore?

P.S. If you’re wondering, yes of course I have a chocolate version of the cookie dough dip as well. Here’s the Brownie Batter Dip recipe I first published back in 2011.

Gosh I’ve been blogging a long time.

Chocolate Chip Banana Cookie Dough Dip. It tastes like banana bread batter!

Adapted from this Raw Cookie Dough Recipe

Banana Cookie Dough Dip

Total Time: 5m
Yield: 3 cups
Print This Recipe [mrp_rating_result show_count="false" show_rich_snippets="false"]


  • 1 1/2 cups cooked garbanzo or white beans (1 can, drained + rinsed very well)
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup rolled oats or quick oats
  • 1/2 cup mashed banana, as ripe as possible (1 medium)
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter OR allergy-friendly alternative
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup, honey, or agave
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips, plus more for the top if desired


In a good food processor, process all ingredients except the chips until completely smooth. (A blender will work if you must—and if you stop it every now and then to stir so it blends evenly—but texture and taste will be better in a food processor). Stir in the chips, and serve with graham crackers, sliced fruit, gingersnaps, or anything else you want to dip in cookie dough! Store leftovers covered and refrigerated 2-3 days.

    *Gasp* Oh, so exciting! I LOVE your cookie dough dips! I seriously won’t do any other recipe. I mean, why would you change when you’ve got something so close to perfect?
    I would LOOOOVVVE for you to experiment with more flavors! My brain in racing! Oreo, blueberry muffin, mint chocolate chip, peanut butter cookie, carrot cake, peanut butter cup, smore’s (with your marshmallow recipe)…. The possibilities!!!

  2. jordan @ dancing for donuts says

  3. Sue says

    Sounds amazing! Of course, I love all your recipes!! Where did you get those great looking crackers in the picture with the dip? I have a hard time finding “good” vegan crackers.

    • Lizzy Amirana says

      sorry, i just drooled on my laptop…. sounds amazing! Especially for saint patricks day! maybe the brownie batter with peppermint extract??? hmm…..

  4. Lauren says

    This is so great!! I made it yesterday and then couldn’t stop eating it. I tried it with an apple, first, but then I just kept eating it with a spoon. SO YUMMY!

  5. Megan Romano says

    I saw the packaged dips in the hummus section at the grocery store and immediately thought of you! The original cookie dough dip was my introduction to your blog 🙂 Thank you for everything that you do – and just for being you!

  6. Tara Lollis says

    I love all of your recipes that I am tried. You are such an inspiration to me on how to have my sweets in a healthier way! I make at least 3 Katie recipes a week! Tonight I made this delicious Dip and it was AMAZING. Completely satisfied my need for a sweet! Please don’t ever stop posting. I’m buying you other cookbook tonight!

  7. Lauren says

    Do you prefer these dips made with chickpeas or white beans? I’ve only ever made them with chickpeas, but I’m curious about your preferences. Thanks so much in advance!

      • Lauren says

        Thank you very much! This time, I’ll try one of the cookie dough dips with white beans, then. Usually, I drain, rinse, and then peel the garbanzo beans. I’ve found that peeling each bean produces a smoother texture in the end product, but it’s a bit more laborious. Thank you for your feedback. As ALWAYS, thank you for your wonderful recipes. Kindly, Lauren.

    I’m thinking I could just sub the banana for some pumpkin or pumpkin butter to make a pumpkin spice dip.
    Sound about correct?

  9. Laura Brummer says

    I love your recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip! I’ve made it several times over the years. I linked a blog entry by Food52 that shares how to melt chocolate so that when added to cookie dough or ice cream it has a great texture and taste, as opposed to just adding chocolate chips, which often taste chalky in cold foods.
