Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip

It’s like an unbaked form of the popular Deep Dish Cookie Pie.

I don’t know about you, but when I make that cookie pie, quite a bit of the raw dough gets consumed in the process!

So I figured, why bother baking it at all?

Especially with the summer weather approaching, this cookie dough dip is a great way to get your chocolate chip cookie fix without turning on the oven.

But will “normal” people like it?

Often, I’m unsure if a recipe with which I am in love will be a hit with the general population of people who aren’t used to healthy food.

Yes, I have my wonderful taste-testing friends, but by now, they pretty much know that anything I’m asking them to taste will be healthy.

Therefore, I worry their judgment might be biased (i.e. they might think, “Well, this is good… for a healthy dessert).

I don’t want my desserts to be good for a healthy dessert.

I want them to be good, for any dessert!

Healthy Cookie Dough Dip?

I brought this healthy cookie dough dip to a party. But I didn’t tell anyone it was healthy, and I didn’t tell anyone it was mine. I simply set the dip down on the table amidst the other snacks.

Something amazing happened…

People tried the dip.

They went back for seconds.

Then thirds.

Everyone kept asking, “Who brought the cookie dough dip? I need this recipe!

And I can’t tell you how many girls said, “Ugh I gotta stop eating this stuff” or “Where are my fat pants?”

When I finally admitted the dip was healthy (and that it contained chickpeas!), no one would believe me.

Therefore, this chickpea cookie dough dip recipe is a winner.

You can, of course, just eat this healthy cookie dough dip by the spoonful. For the party, I served it with graham crackers, but fresh fruit would also be nice.

Or you could get crazy and dip in any of these Healthy Cookies Recipes!

Healthy Chickpea Cookie Dough Dip

How to make the original healthy chickpea cookie dough dip that will shock everyone who tries it!
4.9/5 (133)
Total Time 10 minutes
Yield 3 cups

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups chickpeas or white beans (1 can, drained and rinsed very well) (250g after draining)
  • 1/8 tsp plus 1/16 tsp salt
  • just over 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup nut butter of choice, or allergy friendly sub
  • up to 1/4 cup milk of choice, only if needed
  • Sweetener of choice (see note below)
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips or sugar free chocolate chips
  • 2-3 tbsp oats, flaxmeal, or almond flour as needed to thicken

Instructions

  • Sweetener Notes: I used 2/3 cup brown sugar when I first made this for the party. Liquid sweeteners (agave, maple, etc.) are fine as well. You can get away with less sugar – some people will be perfectly fine with just 3 tbsp for the whole recipe! See the following link for: Sugar-Free Cookie Dough Dip.
    Add all ingredients (except for chocolate chips) to a good food processor, and process until very smooth. Then mix in the chocolate chips. (Some commenters have had success with a blender, but I did not. Try that at your own risk, and know the results will be better in a high-quality food processor such as a Cuisinart.) If made correctly and blended long enough, this should have the exact texture of real cookie dough!

    This is delicious, but unfortunately the calories definitely didn’t add up for me. I only used 2 tablespoons of oats, 3 tablespoons of brown sugar, and about a tablespoon and a half of skim milk and all the other measurements were the same. It yielded about one and three-quarter cup of cookie dough with a quarter cup serving being 170 calories. So I was a little bit bummed out that a quarter cup was almost double the calories that were listed. I still think it’s a delicious recipe! It’s just not the low-calorie recipe I was looking for.

    • Jason Sanford says

      I would look at two things – the skim milk (quadruple the amount of calories as unsweetened cashew milk) and if you used an online calculator, the big ones are notoriously incorrect on beans. Hope that maybe helps get your numbers lower!

      • Emily says

        Could I possibly have your calorie breakdown? I referenced the calories of the chickpeas on by bag of dried chickpeas, a can of chickpeas I had, and an online source. If it’s too much trouble, no worries! 😊

  2. Abi says

    Very excited to try this recipe but I hate food waste. How long does this dip keep for in the fridge? Can I freeze it? 😊

  3. Linda Center says

    Amazed that this really does taste like cookie dough and it’s great. For sweetener, I used honey and it works very well, just added a few more oats. I’m using graham crackers as dippers. So good!

  4. Julie says

    How about using PB2 or PB2 w/Cocoa to reduce the nut butter calorie count (along with reducing sugar)? Have you tried this by chance? (Yep, I’m counting WW points 😊)

    Well, it has finally happened – I am officially a vegetarian now. I’ve tried off and on for years to kick meat out of my diet with no luck because every vegetarian thing I’ve ever eaten has been middling, at best. Then I made this dip and it was fabulous – even my daughter loves it! Then I started poking around the rest of the blog and discovered your enchilada soup recipe and that turned out amazing, too. I took the time to pull up a dozen or so recipes from the blog and it turns out there is a ton of delicious, meat-free food out there. Who would have thought? We are still doing dairy and eggs, but this is a huge change for our household and it is all thanks to Katie!

    • Jason Sanford says

      Ha, love this! I’m not a vegan either, but I am so much closer than I was now that I work for Katie and am eating vegan desserts all the time!
