Lower-Fat Snickerdoodle Dip

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.

      I made it with only 1 Tb nut butter and 3 Tb apple sauce. It came out great. I think it needs a little fat to enhance the flavor.

    Has anyone ever actually tried any of the blondie recipes with white beans? I am allergic to garbanzo beans!

    CCK: When you made (or if you were to make) this lower-fat version of the snickerdoodle dip how much stevia would you substitute for the sugar? I don’t have too much of a sweet tooth (maybe a little more than you, but not by much). I have the packets, so a measure of packets would be best. Thanks so much! I can’t wait to get a-blendin’! 🙂

    I am in love with this blog and can’t wait to try them all! My son is allergic to peanuts so would you say the apple sauce works in replacement for all the recipes? Make note I am eating the chocolate chip dip as I type. Amazing!

      I wouldn’t recommend applesauce as a replacement for pb. You need something with fat to replace pb and still give the same rich taste, in most cases. Depending on the recipe, you can sub things such as almond butter, walnut butter, cashew butter, coconut butter, sunflower butter, or even oil or Earth Balance in some cases.

    Hi, fantastic site you have here!
    Been interested in the concept of healthy deserts for some time now, discovering stevia years ago and having purchased 3 stevia desert baking books! (sadly, due to living circumstances, have only had a chance to make a make 3 deserts; stevia spice cake, carrot cake, and brownies).

    I DID make your non-fat snickerdoodle cookie dip and have fallen in love! Thanks for coming up with such a brilliant idea! I was wondering, if you think there may be someway to make the snickerdoodle non-fat dip with a vegetable puree instead of beans? My concern is replicating the texture, as the beans provide that kind of gritty starchiness that is crucial. Something to turn (say) a pumpkin puree into more of a gritty paste. Any ideas??

    I did the same thing WITH cauliflower! How come mine didn’t come out!!!?? I pureed the cauliflower in our food processor… I found it was okay, I guess the reason I wasn’t satisfied was again, that grainy texture (that the beans provide) wasn’t there…. hmmm… I’m thinking maybe cornstarch? or xanthum gum added?

    That’s so funny you did the same thing!

    How about avocado for the fat source? My kids can’t do nuts or seeds, so i’m thinking avocado might be a good option. Anyone try that?
