Cookie Dough Dip

I finally decided to try this out.

Gosh, why did it take me so long?

Cookie Dough Dip!

Cookie dough... that you can eat by the spoonful.  That you're supposed to eat by the spoonful.

That is just genius.

I think Katie sure deserves a round of applause for thinking this one up.

I mean, who knew chickpeas could make such a great dessert?

Oops! I gave away the secret ingredient.

But don't worry.  You can't taste them at all.

Cookie Dough Dip - inspired by Chocolate Covered Katie's many recipes


  • 1 1/2 cups (or 1 can) chickpeas
  • 3 tbsp softened butter, vegan butter substitute, or nut butter of your choice (if using a nut butter, the dip may take on that taste)
  • 1 tbsp applesauce
  • 2 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch baking soda
  • pinch salt
  • 3/4 cup sugar (If you don't have a big sweet tooth, you can use less.  Just taste as you go)
  • 1/4 cup quick oats or ground flax
Rinse and drain chickpeas very well.  Then, put all ingredients into a food processor and blend away until smooth.  Scoop dough into bowl and top with chocolate chips and/or sprinkles if desired.  Store in fridge (If using butter, the dip will harden when chilled)

Please don't make the same mistake I did.

Make this dip, and make it now!

I mean it.

Run to your kitchen!

You better already be measuring out your ingredients.

Or maybe, you're one of those speedy cooks, and already have your food processor mixing away.

Either way, if this cookie dough dip is already starting to form, you are less than 10 minutes away from a big bowl of cookie dough... and a spoon!

  1. Cookie dough dips are gaining more and more popularity. I am so glad the internet introduced me to this awesome find. I love your version, easy to make and really delicious. Gonna whip up one now ;)
    Anyhoo, we have just recently launched a food photo submission site, that allows you to showcase all your great work and share it with all of our visitors. Your phenomenal photos have caught our attention. We’d be proud to have your work as part of our growing collection to continue to have a larger reach and further inspire all fellow food lovers out there! (sorry for the blatant shameless plug)!

    1. I'm glad you like the dip. It's always a great feeling when someone tries, and likes, a recipe you posted.

      Also, I'd love to submit to your website. It looks really nice!

  2. I just made this and it was good at first but after a few bites it just made me feel sick -- two hours later and my stomach still feels very unsettled. I cut back on the sugar but it was still too sweet and just tasted off to me... I left out the applesauce because I forgot to buy it, so maybe that's why?

    1. I'm so sorry for that.

      Maybe the problem could have been that this dip was just a bit to sweet or heavy. I actually found that when i made it, it tasted much better (less sweet) on the second day, after chilling in the fridge overnight. I'm not sure why that is, but you could always try that If you'd like to give the dip another try (which you by no means have to). You could also try only lightly coating fruit or crackers with it instead of having spoonfuls. Then again, maybe this recipe just isn't for you.

      Again, I'm so sorry that you felt sick, and hopefully it won't stop you from ever having cookie dough again.
